It’s fixed! №64

We keep on working on improvements and fixes for War Thunder, and in this digest we’d like to tell you about the most prominent recent changes to the game. You can find information about all updates that have been released in War Thunder in the special section of our website.

Container auto-drop

Any suspended container reduces flight characteristics - this applies to a container full of unguided rockets, it also applies to an empty one as they all affect the resistance of oncoming airflow! Previously we introduced the ability to get rid of some empty suspended containers. Now we are making that mechanic automatic!

Depending on the type, containers can be dropped separately or after one type of ordnance is completely used up.

For your convenience we have left the setting to enable or disable this feature: “Automatic dropping of empty weapon containers”.

Moving target

UAVs are great for everything - they are great scouts, they help your whole team and your squad mates and they give you a nice opportunity to annoy the enemy by buzzing in their ear. But the trouble is that once you have launched your scouting UAV - your vehicle has been left motionless waiting for a lucky hunter.

That was the way it used to be. Now you can control the UAV from a moving vehicle if you set the direction of movement and turn on cruise control before launching the UAV. Don’t be like a rock. Keep moving!

Saving your rear!

We have fixed a bug with the incorrect display of the chaffs/flares counter when firing them separately. Also, one flare and one chaff will be dropped in one shot. Good luck dodging that missile.
