Gaijin Entertainment Announces Military Online Action War thunder has received a big update to “Right on target”. The game has improved in every aspect: dozens of new vehicle models, such as the Soviet MiG-27M attack aircraft with guided bombs, the Swedish JA37C Jaktviggen interceptor, the American heavy cruiser USS Pittsburgh and the Italian C13 T90 light infantry fighting vehicle, will provide a new experience, new visual effects and improved models. the already familiar models of technology will make the game more spectacular, and the interface improvements – more convenient. War Thunder also now supports NVIDIA DLSS technology in the latest version 2.2, which helps you get high-quality images in high resolution without sacrificing frame rates.
The JA37C Jaktviggen is a fighter-interceptor from the Viggen family of jet fighters that were supplied to the Royal Swedish Air Force in the 1980s and have become its trademark. Viggen’s unusual airframe design, efficient high-lift devices and air brakes allow it to make turns very quickly and give the car very good roll speed. The JA37C Jaktviggen version was designed to serve as a fighter-interceptor, so its arsenal is based on air-to-air missiles, including the new RB71 with radar guidance, huge launch range and available overload of 30 G.
With the “Right on target” update, more realistic and spectacular effects of water interaction with physical objects – for example, bullets and projectiles – came into the game. Explosions of artillery cellars and torpedoes, as well as fires on boats and ships, look in a new way. Aircraft fans should pay attention to the updated models of the legendary B-17 bombers – the number of polygons on the models has been increased 3 times, and their textures have become 4 times larger. In addition, the stall effects in the air have been updated – traces of condensation that appear at the wingtips at high speed. The rendering of false heat targets has also become more colorful.
The range of maps on which fans of mixed battles of armored vehicles and aircraft can fight has expanded. “Cosmodrome” is based on the location of the same name from the April Fools’ event “War 2077” and will suit fans of open field battles. “Breslau” was created based on the siege of Breslau (now – Wroclaw) during the Second World War, and battles will unfold here in dense urban development. An important innovation in naval battles is the fire control system: the aiming reticle, interface tips on the status of each installation, and a convenient lead marker will help you hit the target.
Finally, in the update, the work of War Thunder players, created under the profit sharing program, has been officially added to the game. Timur “_PtaXa_” Tania developed a detailed cockpit model of the German He 111 H-16 bomber for War Thunder, and Daniil “Joy_Division__” Zaitsev – a model of the German flying boat BV 138.
