This weekend we celebrate the launch of our new Race Mode for aircraft! We invite you to experience speed on a whole new level and to demonstrate your pilot skills in a three dimensional air race on our new location 'Tropical Island'. Introduced with War Thunder Update 1.43, the location features a winding air racetrack that will soon determine who has the best flying abilities.
Feel the excitement of racing and experience in practice the laws of physics, proving to your opponents that you can surprise them with quick responses and crazy maneuvers not only in combat, but also in this high-speed contest while flying through cascades of unexpected turns and hazards. Making it successfully through the track requires both vigilance and attention to maintain the most efficient flight path, as you don't want to lose a single second due to mistakes.
Fasten your seatbelts, Pilots, as the race will start soon!
