War Thunder background
  • Added Battle tasks for Tank and Aviation Simulation Battles.
  • Added a limitation on the duration of the Prandtl effect, as well as the interval between launches of this effect.

Ground Vehicles

  • Object 120 — the incorrect display of the material of the wooden ‘splasher’ has been fixed (report).
  • VFM5 — armouring of the lower frontal area has been fixed (increased from 6.35 mm to 38.1 mm). Earlier, due to the erroneous value, the tank might receive damage while being shot from a 12 mm machine gun (report).
  • STB-1, Type 74 (all versions), Type 87 — power output of the Mitsubishi 10ZF22WT engine has been corrected and is now 870 hp (report).
  • Leopard C2A1 MEXAS — maximum forward speed has been decreased from 66 km/h to 62 km/h; maximum reverse speed has been decreased from 26 km/h to 24 km/h (report).
  • Leopard C2A1 MEXAS — an error that caused the incorrect display in protection analysis mode has been fixed. When “Show external construction elements” had been toggled off, the grate of the engine-transmission compartment was not displayed, while the frontal ‘splashers’ and the pad on top of the turret were displayed (report).
  • Type 62, Type 63-I and ZTS63 — long distance spread of the Type-62-85-TC gun has been reduced (report).

Locations and Missions

  • [Pilotage] Mission for the training of aerobatic teams — an error that caused the Duisburg and Dortmund airfields to be absent from the location has been fixed (report).


  • An error that caused the “watch the battle” button, that allowed a player to watch a server replay, to not be displayed in the “messages” tab in the battle results has been fixed.
