War Thunder background


  • Switching to ACM and HMD modes for radars on the F-16C Block 50, F-16D Block 40 Barak II, Mirage 2000-5F and J-8F now works in the same way it worked for radars on all MiG-29s and on the Yak-141. From standby mode, radars are switched by “Lock Radar/IRST on target” command into “HMD” mode and by “Radar/IRST beyond/within visual range combat” command into “ACM” mode.
  • APP-73 RWR used on the JA37 will detect radar illumination for SARH missiles.
  • Saab A32A, Saab A32A Röd Adam — a bug that caused the area where chaff is released from to be covered has been fixed. (Report)
  • Bf 109 F-4 (Hungary) — a bug that caused cannons on the wings to be displayed in X-Ray mode when bombs were equipped has been fixed. (Report)
  • Mirage 2000D-R1 — the sequence of firing the countermeasures has been corrected. (Report)
  • A-4H Skyhawk — a bug that caused RWR indication to not be displayed in the cockpit has been fixed. (Report)


  • HMS Renown, USS Des Moines, USS Newport News, USS Texas — information about armor and maximum speed in the stat card has been corrected.
  • A bug where after hitting an enemy ship, smoke from its funnels were displayed as clouds rather than a continuous smoke stream has been fixed.
  • Opytny, La Combattante, SMS Sachsen, IJN Yamashiro — the camera position and its distance to the ship has been changed in accordance with ships of this class. The roll force (heel) during a circle turn has been adjusted.


  • Priority has been added to Market camouflages when using the Auto camouflage option in battle, which depends on the type of map.
  • A search bar and the possibility of filtering by vehicle rank has been added to the Service Record.
  • A bug that made it impossible to report repairs from the radio command menu while repairing an aircraft has been fixed.
  • While in replays, a bug that caused tooltips to blink when hovering over the action panel has been fixed.
  • The text that displays the number of online players and battles in the hangar has been given a slight shadow so that it’s easier to read whilst against the backdrop of clouds/sky.
  • An aircraft icon has been added to the compass when a player uses the air alert radio command.
