WAR THUNDER PRESENTS Update 1.77 “Advancing Storm”
“Advancing Storm” has brought us a new version of the Dagor engine - 5.0 and with it improved graphics, detailed landscapes and weather effects. Locations are more beautiful and realistic, the sounds are more impressive and we have added two dozen new vehicles including five tanks at the 6th rank: Т-64B, M1 Abrams, Challenger, Leopard 2K and AMX-30 Brenus.

Improved graphics and sound
We have greatly improved the graphics! The picture has become more voluminous and textured, the shadows now look more life like and on roads and tracks, after rain there are puddles and mud. Relief detailing has transformed the landscape diversifying the terrain already familiar to the eye and thanks to the new algorithm of smoothing and contact shadows; buildings, grass, foliage and other small details look even better.

Be sure to listen to how cool the reworked sounds in the game are. Each shot is now collected from several sound "layers" so that the sounds of shots become more detailed.
New ground vehicles
The ground vehicles have been reinforced with some of the more iconic tanks from the 70’s and 80’s in the 20th Century : the Soviet T-64B, the American M1 Abrams, the British Challenger, the German Leopard 2K and the French AMX-30B2 Brenus. All of them are distinguished by great weapons, better armour, high speeds and mobility.
The T-64B is armed with a launcher for Cobra guided anti-tank missiles, and the AMX-30B2 Brenus is equipped with dynamic protection. The Leopard 2K is incredibly mobile, has a quick-firing cannon with an excellent stabilizer and will be able to cope with low-flying air targets thanks to a 20mm anti-aircraft gun. The legendary M1 Abrams, the ancestor of current modern US tanks, is becoming the new top of the American research tree. This machine has some of the most advanced military technologies available at the time including crew protection from ammunition fire. Often after an ammunition fire, the crew of the “Abrams” will be able to continue the battle - it’s fantastic!
By the way some of these vehicles are still in service with different nations.
The German He 177 Greif heavy bomber was created for our game by a player; Daniel Joy_Division__ Zaitsev, under the profit sharing program - Revenue Share. There is also the Martin M.B.5 - a great alternative for the late Spitfire in the British research tree, this will be one of the best prop fighters in the game. Additionally. a new Soviet top aircraft will be introduced with the La-200 which has two jet engines placed one after another.
In total in this update we have added 14 new and updated aircraft models.
