Welcome to the War Thunder - Rumor Round-Up and Discussion thread!

 

Here you can discuss everything related to the new update - such as rumors and other related discussions.

 

Please avoid these types of discussions:

 

-Wish listing there's a separate thread for that  here

-Specifics of vehicle specs like armour, ammo, guns, data sheets you can make a thread  here

-Bug reports you can make a thread  here

 

Not avoiding these discussions will result in your post hidden by a moderator.

 

Please use the  New Power update thread to discuss Update "New Power". Complaining here won't solve anything. 

FAQ

 

Q: What is this thread about?

A:  This thread is about the upcoming patch  and future content.

 

Q: Will you add...?

A: No. We are no developers, just nosy players.

 

Q: Why isn't [vehicle] on the list?

A: Either because there is no evidence that this vehicle will be added, or because no one told me that there is such evidence.

 

Q: Why is [vehicle/feature] on the Denied list?

A: Because said feature or vehicle was denied by Gaijin developers or their representatives at some point in the past.

 

Q: Where did my post go?

A: Off-Topic comments will often be hidden (not deleted) to keep this thread readable and on topic. No need to be alarmed or comment on the disappearing post(s), if concerned then PM Forum Moderators or Seniors.

 

Q: When will we get the patch?

A: Currently our best guess is June of 2021.

 

Q: What if I don't want to read all these pages to find out what will come?

A: Read the OP. I and moderators will frequently update it with new information.

Given we just got the R-60M and dogfight BVR missiles I would say next patch will introduce a handful of jets like the MiG-23MLD, Mirage F.1, maybe a late naval Phantom, F-104S-ASA and whatnot to add the AIM-9L, R-73, Magic 2 and the R-24, Aspide and Super 530 to complement the AIM-7E-2 and Skyflash

 

I think we don't have the AIM-9L in air rb just yet because it's not fair to compare a limited all aspect missile with an all aspect missile

Direct Hit has dropped, the new patch is here

Mods, admins and devs deserve a fresh beer

But not all blogs have dropped, this one is late

As the Russians get a new strike aircraft on their plate

 

The British Mosquito left Russians impressed

And I bet most of you can guess the rest

They wanted something similar, a plane that could strike

And could serve both as bomber and interceptor alike

 

The Tupolev Tu-2 served as the base

To alter the bomber so that it could chase

It got two new engines with four-bladed props

And two Nudelman 45s to cut planes to chops

 

But problems arose, and so would have fate:

The engine development was running late

And as jets were coming, props would soon go out

And the Tu-1 ended up not coming about.

 

 

...

 

I guess that'll be the last dovbleg I'll be doing for a while... unless there's a crafting event at the end of this month. >.>

china's helicopter tree and AIDC F-5E/AT-3 hmmm

Given how we now have 3rd gen fighters, fire and forget AGMs and all aspect AAMs it think it'd be reasonable to speculate that the JH-7 is going to come within the next year if not by the next couple of updates, assuming Gaijin has all the necessary data and pictures to construct a model of one.

I think air-to-air for USA developer give AIM-9H (USN) & AIM-9P-2 (USAF) sidewinder in 4th quarter this year, part of AIM-9G already have in F-4K Phantom FG.1, F-4M Phantom FGR.2 but can use in F-4J & F-4S Phantom II

with the addition of R-60Ms, I can see AIM-9Ls coming in December's update, and with it, the F-104S-ASA 

and I hope that datamined A-4M comes too

 

 

... I'm surprised everybody seems to be forgetting the mid-November update. ;p

 

Just as a reminder, the usual schedule is:

2.x1: October/November

2.x3: December

2.x5: March

2.x7: May

2.x9: September

yeah i don't think gaijin will introduce AIM-9L next update, considering 60M are only introduced for Mig-23/27 (which only gets them because they're absolutely trash). maybe only for F-104 ASA as soft launch. mind you that while R-60M have all-aspect, it's still an R-60, just with all-aspect, and the frontal lock range is quiet short, while Lima is pretty much like magics with all-aspect and even harder to decoy

With the old FM you had to activate your neurons instead of flying it as if you were blindfolded, and then it was pretty good

 

Now with the new FM it's sooooo good I managed to keep up with a Viggen in a sustained dogfight and F-4s have no chance against it. 

 

Oh yes.. dogfight headon missiles combined with IRST too
