  1. yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss http://warthunder.com/en/news/4666-development-tribal-class-destroyer-en it's British HMS Cavalier here we come!
  2. so uh yeh destroyers are a thing: http://warthunder.com/en/news/4666-development-tribal-class-destroyer-en
  3. from information discussed in the EF 132 thread there are images of a prototype either being tested by the Russians or Germans (judging by the uniforms), with at least images of it, but afaik the Russians completed at least one and developed it into the IL22, with the data (notice how strikingly similar the aircraft designs are, especially when silhouetted) By Harriman - Own work, Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=3841675 By Greg Goebel - http://www.vectorsite.net/avil28.html, Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=5923560
  4. interesting thing is that the russians did complete the EF132 (taken from the EF132 suggestion in further discussion section) more can be found at the bottom of the page
  5. Aircraft/Loadouts

    so yes this looks awesome info wise
  6. and include more bombing targets (I.E. new ones pop up at different phases/times in the battle) then include a higher BR bracket, then your looking in the right region. and besides WeBe stated that it has gone through plenty of play/balance testing and they found it fits in very well into the current game, it just means people will HAVE to climb properly at the start of a match
  7. i just hope it'll get an XH558 camo scheme
  8. it's still a work in progress, they only started the cockpit recently and i mean RECENTLY (i.e. less than a month, although i cannot confirm that) for those who didn't see what i'm on about here's what WeBe's guys have been working on
  9. so Webe's group have been working on the Vulcan and it's coming along quite nicely (on ManyMilesAway's stream)
  10. good i hope to see HMS Cavalier at some point (saw it fire it's guns at one of the special event days)
  11. indeed, sometimes i question my buying choices.....
  12. wasn't originally gonna get it, now it looks like i'll have to buy some of those coin things
  13. hmm maybe i should learn to model, then i could make the Short Seamew for this game. also question in regards to revenue share program, does the creator get the vehicle for free to their registered account; so even if it's a rare event vehicle they'll have it anyway?
  14. awww i wanted it to be derpy, hang on surely if it's Russian built variant, surely gaijin have access to better modelling data?
  15. yeh no that does look like the real life vehicle i assume this is a fan made model/photoshop jobbie?
  16. i knew about these two, but not the others, got any info on them?
  17. looks damn cool, but i think we're getting a little off topic, if anyone would like to add more please join my new thread i setup for this stuff
  18. so recently i've been digging into the history of British aircraft or other countries post war and i keep finding these oddities that are a result of this early experimentation of new technologies gained and one of my favourites so far has to be this thing: (it's positively adorable ) The Short Seamew it first flew on the 23rd August 1953, mainly designed as an anti submarine warfare aircraft for the FAA, with the ability to carry a small amount of rockets (armour piercing), depth charges and a single torpedo (in seperate configurations) of the total 90 ordered (of two different variants mind you, 60 for the AS.1 and 30 for the MR.2) only 26 of the production runs (some being modified to the MR.2 specifications) and 3 prototypes were ever constructed so if any of you want to add some of your favourite derpy, forgotten or odd aircraft to this thread then please do
  19. to put it simply we went mad for jet technology after the war and just to put into perspective how big the tyne engines was
  20. we brits did a similar thing Avro Lincoln testbed G-37-1 at the Farnborough SBAC Show in 1956, flying solely on its nose-mounted Rolls-Royce Tyne By RuthAS - Own work, CC BY 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=6084668 this time a lancaster testing out some jet engines, which i believe are sapphire jet engines
  21. my exact thoughts, anyway i think this the conversation started on this thing at Tupolev "hey Ivan i have a great idea of how we could test this thing"
  22. damn do i love the idea of the TU 91, but i feel it'll get the same treatment as the wyvern, which admittedly isn't a bad thing, just a bit depressing, tbh i'd be happy if the IL20, IL40 & TU91 were added together plus i managed to find what they tested it's turboprop design on (rather like what we brits did to the Lancasters and Lincolns) and here's what it actually looks like to compare:
  23. for the last time NO, afaik as we know they are waiting for the USER MADE MODEL to be done http://live.warthunder.com/user/Joy_Division__/ it's being made by this guy
  24. yes i very much support these vehicles to be added in the British tree (obviously the first T17 in the US tree)
  25. right for some reason the new music from naval battles started playing in my hangar after this latest content patch (specifically the economy change), thing is I've never had this play before this update, secondly i don't currently have access to the naval testing section of war thunder...... and believe me I've sat in the hangar for hours before and never heard the new tracks play once (while watching videos or eating dinner haha)
  26. good changes all around, hmm i wonder when are these changes coming in april?
