War Thunder background
  • A bug has been fixed that allowed the Churchill Crocodile to tow several fuel trailers.
  • AS42/47 - the rate of fire has been increased from 12 to 20 rounds per minute.
  • Parameters for the default rangefinder have been adjusted; the maximum direction error has been increased from 100 to 150 metres.
  • The following list of vehicles have had their “Rangefinder” modification reconsidered. Previously, stereoscopic rangefinders were notionaly divided to ‘early’ and ‘late’. We decided to discontinue ‘early’ rangefinders, since they did not differ much from default rangefinders. All vehicles that previously were equipped with ‘early’ rangefinders will now have ‘late’ parameters.

The Rangefinder's maximal distance has been increased from 2,500 to 4,000 metres. Max distance error reduced from 150 to 100 metres.
