Pilots! War Thunder update 1.29 is finnaly arrived! What's new?
 

 
 
New Login, Hangar, and Loading windows
 
Players may see new interface elements right as the game starts - starting with a new login window with an animated background.
The main window of the hangar was also changed as well, as was the “To Battle!” button. Now you enter the fight with just one click on the “To Battle!” button. If you need some parameters to be changed, just hover your cursor over it.
 
Also you may now choose an aircraft for HB/FRB before entering the battle.
 
Damage Model
 
War Thunder’s damage model (DM) was significantly improved in Update 1.29. We’ve added circa 10 new parts and specified and tuned all existing parts for all planes. Along with introducing the correct ammo types for all types of weapons, these changes make the air fight fiercer and much more interesting. And more historical, of course.
Damage from bombs, rockets and torpedoes was also tuned according to the performance of their real counterparts.
 
Ammo belts options
 
Update 1.29 brings a new feature; customizing fighters’ ammo belts. Separately, for cannons and machine guns, you may now choose from several types of ammunition: universal, for air targets, for ground targets, and for stealth attacks (without tracers).
 
New Aircraft
 
Four nations get new bombers in their development trees:
 


  • Japan gets 2 new top-tier bombers - Nakajima G5N and Nakajima G8N. The first one is the biggest plane in War Thunder, and takes up to 4 bombs of 1 ton each. It’s elder sister, the G8N, takes only 3 tons of explosive cargo, but has three turret cannons to protect the delivery.

  • United States gets several modifications of the legendary B-25. This famous bomber blends into the US tech tree right between A-20 and B-17, having 6 machine guns and up to 1.5 tons of bombs.

  • Germany is granted the multi-role Do.217 in several modifications; from Do.217E-2 with up to 2 tons of bombs to night interceptor Do.217N-1 armed with four MG 151 cannons.

  • Soviet line of Tupolev Tu-2 bombers now include several late modifications of Tu-2 with heavier armor.

 
Great Britain is not disregarded at all with brand new top tier Meteor Mk. 8 jet fighter, capable of bearing both bombs and rockets.

I understand changes were needed to bombing, and I don't mind doing proper bomb runs, but you've now made something required to win Ground Strike maps tedious and completely unfun.  Without an expedient way to kill pillboxes, which 500kg bombs could do easily, matches are turned into contests of attrition and whose ADHD is less severe.

you should post the update notice before the update, so we convert the exp and buy the planes/expert before the updates

 

or at least make the crew training/expert price back to the old price for a few days so we can train/expert our planes

 

please read this! i saved up 3 million lions and 20 million free exp for the mig 15 but now i'm doomed

 

thanks

Great changes. I am glad the repair for the FW190 is lowered and the Browning sound like a gun instead of a pencil sharpener. Thank you for the 50% discount for repairs on FW190.

Honestly im really unhappy about the updates, evrything feels broken, my premium typoon and lv150+ crews were being anhilated by low lv biplanes. I couldnt out turn or go up they seemed to keep up with me in speed. Also the handling felt really wrong, my typhoon felt like it was a catalina. And why dont fighter craft have Combat Flaps anymore but the huge bombers that dont do floral have combat flaps?

Also this weird rubberband thing around the aiming and looking reticle is so distracting.

 

I spent £40 on this game yesterday and im so dissapointed after this patch id prefer you guys to wipe my account and just give me a full refund or atleast fix the issues that this patch has caused.

There appears to have been some flight model changes not listed here in my experience the mosquito appears much better.  Is this just me or were there more? also there were others on the dev that said these felt the same also.

I'm getting an error. After downloading the initial War Thunder Launcher, the setup starts and then "C:\Program Files (x86)\War Thunder\launcher.exe An error occurred while trying to replace the existing file: DeleteFile failed; code 5. Access denied." I click retry and it does it again, I click ignore and the launcher restarts and downloads the new launcher again, problem occurs, rinse and repeat. Any ideas?

 

Yes, I'm running it in admin mode on my admin account, so that's not an issue.

I feel that we need a clearer explanation on 2 things.

 

First is what's the default (unupgraded) ammo belt configuration?

 

Second is how do all the rounds rate against each other?

Can't say im amused with how much xp has been cut for battIles, I felt the balance was good before (if a little long) but still not obnoxiously long, that is quite diffrent now and I do very much hope this is nothing more then a failed experiment and it will be adjustedagain.

Nah not 1 plane, i was flying in cropdusters, type-18's, typhoon, spitfire. I get some of the changes yes, the biplaes should have lower hp which im fine with there wood and canvas. But all of the planes overall feel sluggish. The new ammo types are nice the new physics will be something ill get used to. But theres and inbetween they need to hit where the balance and handling are at a fair place. Right now i was being taken out by lower models that just shouldnt be able to take out the planes i was flying before the patch. Tiny 7mm machine guns were tearing me to shreds.

 

The game just feels like a bad experience now..

C'mon people, stop complaining, i like the new patch. As long as we have MM i'm satisfied. Planes don't fly like starships you know.
