Update ( - PlayStation®, Xbox)

Ground vehicles

  • A bug has been fixed that allowed installation of naval decorations on ground vehicles (report).
  • A bug has been fixed where after turret traverse drive repair the visual model of the turret on some vehicles was aligned directly forward (report).


  • A bug has been fixed that prevented air-to-air missile launch while the IRST lock-on was enabled.
  • A bug has been fixed where hover mode could be disabled when switching to the “Controls” menu.
  • Ki-61/100 (all versions) — effects of high-speed airflow to the rudders were reduced in order to make a pull-out easier.
  • JA 37 С — calibre of countermeasures has been set to 55mm (report).
  • Wirraway — separate bomb drop has been added in accordance with “Wirraway Operation Instructions”.

Helicopter PvE
