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.
Invisible tank wrecks
This problem occured when a destroyed enemy escaped a battle back to the hangar. Their last vehicle wasn’t displayed on the client of other players, but remained on the server. Shells did not penetrate through the invisible tank wreck and it looked as if they just disappeared and players might suddenly collide with the invisible object.
The issue has been fixed. All vehicles on the battlefield are now saved correctly.
Hellfire with X-Ray vision
This bug was reported by helicopter pilots who noticed that after laser capture, the ground target lockon wasn’t reset even after solid obstacles like mountains or lowland locations were encountered. Helicopter pilots were literally able to fire blindy from a safe position which of course was a bug in the laser operation.
We want to thank all the players who told us about this problem and we are fixing it in this update.
Dark night vision device
This problem manifested itself only on the ultra-low graphic settings as a darkening of the image after turning on and then exiting the NVD or thermal image mode.
We have tweaked the settings and got rid of this unpleasant effect.
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.
