War Thunder Update Minor Patch Introduces VR Fix and More

War Thunder Update
War Thunder Update Gaijin Entertainment

A minor patch is now available for War Thunder and it introduces fixes for some vehicles when playing in VR mode, as well as various additions and improvements.

While Update is an incremental patch, it does offer nice things. First, it fixes a bug in the VR mode where the HUD on the windshield for vehicles, such as the F-5E, Phantom FGR.2, and the Harrier GR.1, may move when moving the head.

For those who may experience some crashes when starting missions on the Battle for Guadalcanal, they have been fixed in this patch. This means that no more crashes when playing such a dynamic campaign.

Also, Azimuth Scale and Active Reconnaissance have been added to the Commander’s sights, giving players certain advantages on the battlefield.

Visual improvements can also be expected. For instance, the damage panel of some ships has been repositioned so it will no longer overlap with the mission objectives window.
