Ground vehicles

  • A bug has been fixed that prevents the SPAAG lead markers at distances over 3.5 km while locking on target.
  • A bug has been fixed that enabled the lead marker on SPAAGs without cannons.
  • A bug has been fixed that allows knocked out crew members to use the NVD, rangefinder, IR searchlight, engine control.
  • PUMA — a bug has been fixed where the HEAT rounds in the protection analysis arrived at wrong angles.
  • A bug has been fixed that allowed vehicle control after the nuclear blast by switching to the aircraft gunner’s camera or binoculars of ground vehicles.
  • Strela-10M2 — a bug has been fixed that prevents active scouting mechanics in battle (report).
  • Disabled vehicle hit indicators caused by the forward guns on aircraft, nearby explosions and fire in a player’s vehicle.


  • A-6E TRAM — SAS mode has been added.
  • F-16A Block 20 MLU — a drag chute has been added.
  • F-16А (all versions) - max speed at 9 km altitude has been increased.
  • Mirage 2000C-S5, Mirage 2000D-R1 - max IAS speed has been increased to 1,440 km/h.
  • MiG-23, MiG-29, F-16, Ja-37, Mirage F1 - for radar pulse-doppler track mode, the notch sector has been reduced. If the target is lost the radar maintains inertial tracking longer.
  • R-23R, R-24R, R-27R, AIM-7, Skyflash, Rb71 missiles - velocity search acquisition zone has been reduced. This adjustment decreases the chance of acquiring another target, although it decreases the chances of locking on to the selected target if the target greatly changes its speed or direction within the period between a missile launch and the target acquisition.
  • For all fighter radars, the range gate for BVR acquisition has been increased to avoid failed acquisition attempts if the target closing speed is high.
  • Mirage 2000D-R1 — a bug has been fixed that caused a speed boost while mounting some weapon presets. The aircraft type has been changed to “strike aircraft”.
  • J-7D — SL reward in Realistic Battles has been increased, the repair cost reduced to 5,400 SL.
  • A bug has been fixed that caused suspended fuel tank detachments while toggling from a ship to aircraft in the hanger.
  • Harrier GR.7 — a missing critical overload indication has been restored.
  • A bug has been fixed that enabled the stabiliser while switching to the optical targeting camera.
  • INS of R-24R and R-27R/ER missiles now works as it should: when contact with the target is lost the missile will continue steering on a predicted target position.
  • Datalink will continue working for R-27R/ER missiles after target req-acquisition by fighter radar, allowing the missile to track target manoeuvres and req-acquire it.


  • USS Arizona, USS Wyoming — fuze delay of AP rounds on the auxiliary guns has been adjusted to 0.015 sec.
  • IJN Myoko — the firing angles of the main calibre turrets have been adjusted. The 3rd turret doesn’t shoot through the superstructure anymore. The ship’s class in the info card has been corrected.
  • IJN Agano — targeting angles of the main calibre turrets have been increased.
  • A bug that caused the mission results window to show an erroneous message about not receiving a reward for inactivity if the connection to the server was lost has been fixed.


  • The volume of enemy vehicles in the rear hemisphere has been increased.
  • Sound of the automatic weapons for ground vehicles and naval vessels has been improved. The sound has become more sharp and distinctive at distance. The volume of the breeches of the player’s guns has become louder.
  • Sounds of rockets and missiles passing by have become more distinctive and bright (in a 2 km area around the player).
  • Ship crew voice chat — the frequency of the following sound reports has been reduced: position of the rudder, incoming hits, orders to initiate a damage control, incoming damage reports, heeling reports.


  • A bug has been fixed where hit decals might be displayed incorrectly: armour penetration marks might be displayed on aircraft, and aircraft skin damage might be displayed on ground vehicles.
  • A bug has been fixed where hit decals might twinkle when turning the camera.
  • A bug that might change the size of the “10th Anniversary” decoration has been fixed.


  • Non-purchased ships and boats now have access to torpedoes in test sail.
  • Reward notifications for actions have been added to Simulator battles, such as a hit to enemy vehicle, capturing of a point, etc. This allows a player to track the helpful actions reward in each period of time and be aware at period end and start.
