Following the Roadmap: Sons of Attila Roadmap implementations and some Postponements
Hey everyone! In today’s major update “Sons of Attila”, we introduced a number of Roadmap features that were previously promised.

We’ve also added tables of summarized and detailed information about parameter changes and in addition to this, some postponements that we need to make. So, let’s dive into the details!

A Decal and Two Fighters to celebrate the U.S. Air Force’s Birthday

Air Force Day was established the same year — but it was celebrated only for a couple years, because in 1949, Armed Forces Day was established that united the celebrations of all branches of the U.S. military.
