War Thunder background
Update 22.09.2020 (


  • The sound indication for destroyed enemy in air battle mode now differs from naval battles.
  • The sound event of fly-by shells near the player’s vehicle features a whistle again, along with a ‘cracking’ sound. The ‘cracking’ sound is more natural for passing-by ultrasonic rounds, but the whistling sound is more familiar to listeners.
  • A bug has been fixed where a destroyed then repaired engine might operate without sound.


  • A bug has been fixed where the landing gear mechanical indicators did not operate in the cockpit view.
