Pilots and Tankers!

At the moment, War Thunder offers more than 600 vehicles including a great variety of aircraft from the Second World War and the Korean War. Many of them are legendary representatives of their nations; just think of the famous P-51 Mustang, the Spitfire or the Bf 109! But there are others that are much less known - and have become a relatively rare sight above the battlefields of War Thunder, for a multitude of reasons. In today's video, we'll take a look at a few of these rare aircraft in War Thunder, that you may not stumble upon every day.

Do you pilot one of these machines yourself? Tell us about your tactics and why you chose the aircraft in the comments!
