 We do not often introduce completely new nations into War Thunder. So you might have questions. We tried to answer the most common ones here:

More about the introduction of the Italian tree in War Thunder:

When will the closed test of the Italian aircraft tree start and how it will be done?

  • Many of you are already familiar with the procedure for the implementation of new vehicles from a new nation into the game: all Italian aircraft will be opened from the beginning for research and purchase for “Tester” (read below on how to become a tester). As the tests are conducted, players will regularly get the opportunity to research and purchase a few new vehicles. The list of the vehicles will be published in the news.

How do you become a tester?

  • Detailed information on the various methods will be published later, but you can currently purchase pre-order packs, which in addition to Italian premium machines, include Test status and unique pre-order bonuses.

Some Italian aircraft are already represented in the German tree. What will happen to them?

  • They will remain with those players who have researched and purchased them and will still be in the German tree.  Also, the modules and improvements for those aircraft will remain tied only to them. For other players they will just disappear and their new representations will appear in the Italian tree.

Will the Italian premium vehicle packs stay available for purchase in the shop?

  • They will be available to purchase for some time, but after update 1.69 is released. Special pre-order bonuses, like decals and titles will however disappear from these packs.
