War Thunder background

From the Roadmap

  • The Severe Damage mechanic carried over from the previous Roadmap has now been added to all gamemodes for aircraft.

Ground Vehicles

  • A bug with the gun stabilizer which caused them work with a delay when moving the gun horizontally in the rear hemisphere has been fixed.
  • VT-4A1, Black Night — a bug causing the APS launchers to sometimes make an extra rotation when activated has been fixed.
  • A bug where leaving a fighter during an air event in Ground Arcade Battles caused ground vehicle markers to appear to a spectating player has been fixed.


  • F-111A — missing limitation on wing folding when attaching underwing 20 mm cannons in the Dynamic Campaign mode has been fixed.
  • For the Akan m/55 gun, the type 5876 armor-piercing tracer round has been added to the ammunition range. A stealth belt for the Akan m/55 gun has also been added to the following aircraft: SAAB-105G, SAAB-105OE, AJ37, AJS37, J29D, J32B, J35A Saab, J35XS, J35D, SK60B.
  • Mi-24P (all variants), Su-25 (all variants) — a stealth belt has been added to the GSh-30 cannon.

  • The new “Battle” mode HUD has been improved:
    • The destroyed vehicle counter animation has been simplified;
    • Indication of when a player is at a capture point has been added;
    • The color of the font, outline and background of the capture points has been changed so that they are similar to the spatial HUD (font and outline to black, background to white) for better readability of capture point progress;
    • Thickness of the outline for a capture point has been reduced for better readability of the capture progress.
  • A confirmation window when enabling the “Researching of helicopters playing ground vehicles” option has been added.
  • A bug that caused crew qualifications to not be updated in the crew window after purchasing an expert or ace crew has been fixed.
  • A bug that caused an unobtainable camouflage to be shown in the modification window after unlocking all camouflages for a vehicle has been fixed.
  • A bug where flag the tooltip background in the customization window could have been smaller than the flag itself has been fixed.
