War Thunder, the free-to-play multiplayer game that focuses heavily on vehicular combat, has received an important update today. Update brings balancing changes to several vehicles, especially ground-focused vehicles.

The patch makes other changes as well. The LOD of grass has been improved, meaning that it will show correctly at long distances. SB replays will now show vehicles' outlines as they should.
