War Thunder: Update Improves Old War Machines

War Thunder Update
War Thunder Update Steam

The developers at Gaijin Entertainment understand that War Thunder has an ever-increasing roster of vehicles. That is why Update is improving the older ones, especially those that require attention.

Improved Vehicles

According to the devs, there are over 2,000 vehicles in the game, so they’re servicing some of the old war machines to give them new life. For instance, the IL-10 and IL-10 (1946) now have separate 82 mm launchers and 132 mm rockets. In addition, the turret’s firing angles have been corrected and so is the ammo capacity of the UBT and B-20 machine guns.

A separate bomb drop for the 120-kg and 250-kg bombs have been implemented to the Swedish Saab A32A, while the armored headrest found in the Ki-84 ko, Ki-84 otsu, and Ki-84 hei Japanese planes have their thickness increased to 13 mm.

For ships, the USS Detroit, USS Omaha, and USS Raleigh now have a wider angle of fire as the traverse angles on the casement of their caliber guns have been increased.

New Anti-aircraft Algorithm

A damaged plane can still be dangerous, so it is best to not leave it unattended. So, developers implemented a new algorithm where anti-aircraft guns will not stop shooting at the enemy aircraft until it has been neutralized.
