War Thunder background
  • A bug has been fixed due to which disabling of the ‘first gun; of the ship resulted in disabling of the ranging shot option.
  • A position of a sound of an aircraft, exceeding Mach1, no longer depends on its distance from a listener and doesn’t attributed to the aircraft position.

Changes to Enduring Confrontation missions in Simulator Battles

  • In aircraft and helicopter EC missions,  the mechanics of forced session leaving (kicking) for inactivity has been reworked. A player may be kicked from session for 300 seconds of inactivity in total during the mission, not only with the first respawn. The abandonment timer now works as follows:
    • If the player is in the air or is on the airfield and the vehicle is under repair, or is on the airfield at a speed faster than repair time, the abandonment timer will be reset (will be set to maximum);
    • If the player is on the ground outside the airfield, or is on the airfield at a speed equal to the repair time but will not be serviced (repaired, reloaded or refueled) then the abandonment timer will be activated.
  • In aviation SB battles, the mechanics of choosing the gaming nation in custom battles has been changed. Players will have a choice from pre-set nation pairs for both teams.
