War Thunder background
It’s fixed! №70

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.

Punching through fences


Many structures in the maps for ground battles serve two purposes: creating a believable environment and providing some cover for the warriors to hide behind. Some destructible structures, however, went above and beyond their purpose and decided to not just hide the fighters but also shield them from fire! Sure, they were destroyed in the process, as they should have, but the enemy that was hiding behind them got a free chance at counterattack instead of deserved damage.

The error has been fixed: feel free to shoot right through fences and structures without fear that some dilapidated shack will impede your attack.

More HMD options


We’re always working on giving the players more options. Soon in air battles "Radar/IRST beyond/within visual range combat” option will be another sensor mode that will be added that allows a helmet-mounted display to be used for target designation.

Note that IR AAM seekers are always controlled via HMD.

Fixing the MiG-29


We’re also improving the new vehicles that have recently been added in the Apex Predators update. In particular we’ve discovered that the R-27R/ER missiles received data link updates from TWS trackfiles, and fixed it. Now the MiG-29 will receive data link updates from hard lock on by the radar only, while the F-14 with its AIM-54 missiles will receive them from both hard lock on and TWS. MiG-29’s seekers will also be disabled as soon as target lock is released.

Saving your camo settings


The recent War Thunder update added an option to customise the condition, scale and rotation of naval camouflage. However, switching between crew slots reset the changes back to default.

We’ve fixed it: rest assured that your camo settings will now not be lost.

Carbon emissions


We live in an age of electric cars and strive to reduce carbon emissions. It might have seemed that the “Assault” mode was setting an example: ground vehicles in that mode suddenly stopped “smoking” at all!

But alas, it was an error: after all, War Thunder is all about realistic vehicles, and these 20th century tanks with internal combustion engines that weren’t too concerned about the environment. So now they’re fuming once again, as they should.

That’s Not All

You’ll find the full list of improvements in the separate changelog - there are many interesting things there. Order of ammo depletion has been adjusted for numerous ground vehicles, the Z-10 helicopter no longer obstructs the view when zoomed in, and the G indicator in cockpit view of the F-16A now displays correct values.


Once again, many thanks for all your bug reports that you submitted using our special service.
