The beginning of the Closed Beta Test for the French Naval forces, new and updated graphical effects for flares, afterburners, rockets and missiles along with new hit marks on ground vehicles. More than 50 new or updated vehicles. Amongst them 14 new ships for the French Navy! But sailors are not the only ones to find something for themselves here! The Mighty F-14B, three different Sukhoi jets, the unusual M1 KVT tank or the first tank from India in WT - Vijayanta! Two new locations, fortifications mechanics, new weapons for aircraft and much more awaits you in La Royale update!

New mechanics and graphical updates

Something nice for everyone! New fortification mechanics for naval maps, new flare effects, new flight effects for rockets and missiles and updated flight physics for most anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles. More realistic hit marks from high-explosive shells, functional radiators for armoured vehicles and wire-guided ATGMs trailing a visible wire behind them!

Aviation

A dozen aircraft, from the new reserve machine - the BF2C-1 biplane to the F-14B - a new top-tier naval jet for the American tech tree. Along with it will come the Su-25T and Su-39, J8F and Mirage 2000 5F. We haven't forgotten about older machines either. Wirraway has undergone a full facelift and received a new 3d model.
