War Thunder

Israeli airspace awaits the players

War Thunder

12/17/2021 - Gaijin Entertainment now announced that the major content update "Winged Lions" for the online military action game War Thunder is already playable. It includes the previously announced closed beta for the Israeli aircraft research tree and playable ship reconnaissance aircraft.

There is also a lot of other new content, including the new "Israel" air battle location, the first two Israeli tanks from the upcoming Israeli tank research tree, and dozens of other new military vehicles. The history of the Israeli Air Force began with the S-199 fighters imported from Czechoslovakia. These were assembled from the remnants of the German Bf 109 G-10 fighter, using as an engine the Jumo 211 developed for bombers. On May 28, 1948, the first Israeli fighter squadron, consisting of four S-199s, was formed under the leadership of several experienced veteran pilots. The S-199 is one of the first aircraft in War Thunder`s Israeli research tree, and players will be able to get to the top tier, where the Kfir C-7 fighter jet is located. The beta test for the Israeli aircraft is only available to Early Access pack owners for now, but will later be made available to all players.

The next major update coming after Winged Lions will include the closed beta test of the Israeli ground vehicle research tree. Two premium packages with Merkava Mk.2 and Sherman M-51 tanks are already available. Their owners will be the first players to gain access to the upcoming tests.

Fans of ground vehicles will likely be intrigued by the fearsome Swedish Bandkanon 1 self-propelled howitzer, which entered service in the early 1960s. The 155mm howitzer with autoloading mechanism takes center stage here, and not just because of its relative size to the vehicle itself. Thanks to the autoloading mechanism, this machine can fire its entire 14-round magazine in just 45 seconds. A single hit from one of the large explosive grenades on the lightly armored parts of a tank, such as the hull top or turret roof, will likely take out any enemy. Another long-awaited new vehicle is the Soviet 2S3 Akatsiya self-propelled gun. The 2S3 received its baptism of fire in Afghanistan and was subsequently mass produced until 1993, undergoing several combat upgrades. The 2S3M is the result of an upgrade in 1975 and features a semi-automatic loader and a good rate of fire.

War Thunder continues to receive visual improvements, and the Winged Lions update brings improved simulation of wind. Previously, wind was only visible on the grass and waves, but now all particle effects such as fire and smoke, dust from ground vehicles and aircraft engines, cannon shots, explosions, and sparks are affected by the wind, especially during a storm.
