With Update 1.83 War Thunder Naval Battles are finally live! Players gained access to a long list of PT boats, sub-chasers, artillery vessels, battle barges… and even destroyers and light cruisers. Truly a sea of potential (sorry!) when it comes to playing different classes of vessels, given that different ships behave and fight in a lot of unique and different ways. You get agile vessels with little to no armour, massive ships that can take a lot of punishment — and everything in between, with all sorts of armaments and crew sizes.
To make it easier for you to adjust to the new world of Naval Battles, today we’ll discuss all the basic controls and key mechanics of the new gamemode.
