War Thunder: Update Fixes Ship Movement and Air-to-Ground Radar

Update Steam

Some important bug fixes have been deployed in the latest update for War Thunder. Developers from Gaijin Entertainment have addressed several issues, including one that involves scouting planes and another that affects helicopters with air-to-ground radars.

Certain large ships can launch a recon aircraft to scout the map for any threats. However, there was a bug that caused the vessel to move backward after braking automatically using the “Abrupt stop” button. This has been fixed in Update and is no longer a problem. So, the next time you launch a recon plane, the ship where it came from can be found in the same place.

Another significant bug addressed involves some helicopters equipped with air-to-ground radars. The issue was that the targets that were displayed on the radar are only those in the optical system’s line of sight. There’s nothing to worry about since this issue has been resolved.


  • M60 AMBT: a bug has been fixed that prevented automatic distance setup on the machine guns after using the laser rangefinder
  • T-55A, T-55AM-1, T-55AMD-1: the thickness of the bulkhead in the engine compartment has been adjusted: 20mm -> 5mm
