Pilots and Tankers!

Attack aircraft, also called Ground Attackers or sometimes Strike Aircraft, are, in general, small to medium sized machines designed for precision strikes against enemy troop formations and encampments. Usually less manoeuvrable than pure fighters due to their bulk and payload, they can pack a punch and are also able to sustain quite a fair amount of damage before going down. In the arsenals of War Thunder, there are plenty of different attackers of different nations, often designed with very different goals and perceptions in mind. Some of them are truly excellent, let's have a look!
