Pilots and Tankers!

In previous episodes, we've already discussed how to play Ground Forces in the Arcade and Realistic modes. Today, we'll increase the difficulty again a little, and experience tanks in the most authentic experience War Thunder has to offer: Simulator mode! There are quite a few important differences here to be noted compared to Realistic and there are a few basic things you should know before heading out for battle.

Due to the combined nature of the game mode, which means that players can control both aircraft and tanks in the same battle, it's also a good way to introduce yourself into the complex world of flight simulation, as you always have the option to stay on or switch to the ground instead. With the upcoming episode, we will then continue with Simulator mode for aircraft.
