In the nearest major update we plan to separate Italian aircraft into a stand-alone research tree. Meet the new War Thunder nation - Italy!

In War Thunder Update “1.69 ”Regia Aeronautica”, besides new ground vehicles and aircraft for existing nations we plan to separate Italian aircraft from the German tree into a stand-alone nation. Besides updating models of the existing Italian vehicles we are pleased to introduce absolutely new combat aircraft of Italy. 

The combat aviation of Italy has a rich and interesting history. By the beginning of WW2, Italy had one of the largest air forces in the world, only bettered by the Soviets. Italian aircraft fought in Europe, Africa, the Mediterranean and on the Eastern front.  The gifted Italian engineers designed beautiful aircraft and many of them were a challenging match for their opponents. 

We are happy to introduce the full-scale research tree of the Italian air force  “Regia Aeronautica” - biplanes, fast light fighters, attackers, famous three-engine bombers and even jet fighters! 

Italian aircraft will become available in the closed beta test after the release of War Thunder update 1.69 Regia Aeronautica”. The first players who will be able to test Italian aviation will be the ones who complete special marathon tasks or purchase early access packs in our online store.
