How the instructor works
Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.

Have you ever considered how the virtual instructor influences your aircraft? Perhaps keen to learn more about the control methods available to you  in War Thunder?

The aircraft Instructor is the unsung hero of many War Thunder battles. This virtual companion is with you on each and every combat sortie and translates the commands you input from your mouse, keyboard, controller or joystick in realtime to the control methods of your aircraft. 

Learning the abilities, limitations and options the instructor offers as well as how to make the most out of your chosen control method can often be the difference between a swift return to the hanger and climbing the ranks to fly with the best. Pilots transitioning, perhaps from Arcade Battles to Realistic, especially will want to make the most out of the options available to them, that give them the ability to get the best performance out of their aircraft, no matter their control method. 

Even Tank Commanders can benefit, as all ground forces vehicles have their own unique version of the instructor that helps keep the vehicle on the right track to victory!
