War Thunder background


  • Tearing off the tail of helicopters with coaxial rotors is no longer counted as destruction, since it does not have a significant impact on the performance of these types of helicopters and does not lead to them crashing. This should help situations where players stop firing at one of these helicopters thinking it is no longer a threat.
  • The detachment of an aircraft wing when the allowable load is exceeded is no longer counted as a destruction, the same as with the tearing off of flaps or landing gear.


  • Previously announced changes to vehicle grouping have been implemented
    • The 2S3M has been grouped with the 2S1, and the He 111 H-3 has been grouped with the BV 138 C-1.
    • The “Strela-10M2” has moved from Rank VI to Rank VII.
