In this digest we would like to tell you about our continuing work on improvements and fixes in the game. You can find information about all updates that have been released in War Thunder on the website special section.
Overpressure damage from external ammunition
An important fix for specific vehicles. Crews of the U-SH 405, the AMX-13 (SS.11) and the AMX-13 (HOT) won’t be affected by overpressure damage after enemy hits to the external rocket and missile launchers.
Frag to the tanker, not the pilot
A cosmetic issue might appear in specific situations in the kill camera. When a tanker destroys an enemy ground vehicle simultaneously with a pilot dropping a bomb exactly on the same enemy, a frag may appear to be counted for the pilot!
Actually, a tanker always got his awards, but the situation looked odd. Well, it’s fixed now!
A bit more improvement of the shell camera
In the last digest we talked about the major improvement to the shell tracking camera in naval battles. It started returning faster, started interacting better with automatic cannons and even widened its viewing angle.
This time it will immediately return to the player if the shell missed the target. After all, there is no point in watching how a shell interacts with water, definitely not hitting anything.
Correct shell cards
This fix also relates to the last release of the digest where we introduced the displaying of a shell card in the modification window even if it hasn’t been unlocked yet.
Unfortunately due to a small bug the characteristics might have been displayed incorrectly but we have fixed this. Now you can study them.
For this digest we have prepared a large set of useful fixes and game improvements. Be sure to read the full list which we have prepared in the separate changelog - there are many interesting things.
Once again, many thanks for all your bug reports that you submitted in our bug report section on the War Thunder forums.
