is an MMO Combat game dedicated to the most pivotal World War II and Korean War battles. In particular, War Thunder lets players take part in massive multiplayer aerial combat, fighting alongside real players all over the world. The game's major battles will be set during the period from 1939 to 1953.
It shares many similarities with World of Tanks and the upcoming World of Warplanes, except the developer's goal set to having tanks, planes and warships playable in the same fights.
Currently, though, there's only planes, some 200 of them. Tech-tree progression is very similar to World of Tanks: you gain experience and money by doing well in battles, and use them to unlock new planes and loadouts.
You can also complete challenges to unlock different paintjobs and decals for your planes.
The matchmaking system has 3 different realism settings: Arcade battles are, well, arcade-y. There's still modular damage and flaps n ♥♥♥♥.
Historical Battles are very much like Arcade battles, but stalls and spins are added in to the mix.
Full Real battles have all the game's realism settings turned on, and you can't use mouse aim to control your plane. Joysticks recommended.
Of course, there's singleplayer and coop missions too: custom missions, dynamic campaigns and tutorials.
So yeah. Gather your equipment, gents, and get ready to take off!My in-game nick is Natti. Add me for some squad flying.
