It’s fixed! №60

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 in the website special section.

Keep track of the machine guns ammunition on the tanks

How much ammo is left in your machine gun? Now you will know it because we have added an ammunition indicator for ground vehicle machine guns. Above the shells icons you will see a bar that visually shows how much ammo you have left because it is useful to be able to gauge how much ammo you still have left to use. This bar will also come in handy when the ammo is nearing the end: it will show the progress of reloading. The number of remaining machine gun belts will be shown separately.

Coaxial machine guns are combined into one interface element and the anti-aircraft machine gun is displayed separately from them. Well, if you don’t like this new feature for some reason you can easily disable it in the settings.

Blowout panels have been normalised


Imagine the situation: the turret is rotated perpendicular to the hull, the ammo rack in the rear cavity caught fire, the blowout panels go off. And somehow the fire spreads over the engine module and other modules. How can it come to this?

It was a mistake that affected Leopards, Leclercs and a number of other vehicles. We have fixed it - no more unnecessary fires will occur.

Fixed the reload times for ships


On large ships we spotted a discrepancy: the crew card promised one time to reload main calibre guns but it actually turned out to be different! No more misinformation: the cannon reload times on the vehicle cards now match those in the battles. Everything is strictly according to the protocol!

That’s Not All

We are continuing to work on improving War Thunder. The pilot’s helmet visor will be properly reflected in the cockpit mirrors, the flames from the spigots will be visible even when the vertical sync is enabled and we have also fixed a few bugs related to the custom weaponry presets.

You can find the full list of improvements in a separate patch note. Check it out:
