  • The availability of airfields depending on the rank of the match has been changed:
    • Low ranked airfields: 1.0 to 3.3.
    • Medium ranked airfields: 3.7 to 6.7. In addition, the low ranked airfield is active as a repair airfield (no spawning, no anti-aircraft guns, but you can land for repairing and reloading).
    • High ranked airfields: 7.0 to 10.3. In addition, the medium ranked airfield is active as a repair airfield (no spawning, no anti-aircraft guns, but you can land for repairing and reloading).
    • Top ranked airfields: 10.7+. In addition, the high ranked airfield is available as a repair airfield (no spawning, no anti-aircraft guns, but you can land for repairs and reloading).


  • Information about camouflage progress has been added to the vehicle modifications window, making it easier to track the customization progress of vehicles.
  • In ground arcade, HUD elements that overlapped each other (air battle start and machine gun ammo count) have been fixed.
  • A bug that caused secondary mounted machine guns to display an incorrect ammo count in the “Secondary weapon” window has been fixed.
  • A bug where the required weight for presets with chaff pods was incorrectly set to only 0.3 kg instead of 243 kg has been fixed.
  • If a stat card becomes overly large on the screen (for example, when you're using a small resolution), then the vehicle's photo is now hidden.
  • A bug that made it not possible to click and open changelog links in the changelog window in-game with a gamepad has been fixed.
  • A bug that caused the fire extinguisher icon on the HUD in-game to only show for 5 seconds and not for the entire fire duration has been fixed.
  • For those of you who use custom localisation, a message to mention this has been added to the top left of the hangar screen. In addition to this, we’ve also added an option to disable custom localisation in-game, under the Main parameters setting.
