The next Major Update: Rumor Round-Up and Discussion

WELCOME to the War Thunder - Rumour Round-Up and Discussion thread!

Here you can discuss everything related to the new update, including rumours, data mines, and dev blogs.

However, please AVOID these types of discussions:

 

Wishing for things. Some examples:

  • "I hope for Mirage 2000 next update"
  • "Gaijin where are these vehicles!!!" <lists 10 vehicles they want in the game>

There's a separate thread for this here.

 

Vehicle spec discussions, such as armour, ammo, ordnance, guns, data sheets, performance. Some examples:

  • "I hope for these vehicles, they will balance the game. They have XYZ ordnance and will counter MiG-23!"
  • 2 page discussions about what type of ammo a new tank in a dev blog will get. Now this is fine for the most part since a vehicle in the dev blog is part of the next update, however it can escalate into completely other discussions so do be careful!

There's plenty of threads for these discussions here.

 

Bug reports, issues, suggestions. Some examples:

  • "Abrams is missing its thermals. However that's not meant to be as it had this historically. Smin fix this!!!"
  • "I think that Challenger 3 would be a good addition to British Ground tree, here are the specs for it"

You can make a bug report here and suggestion here

 

Not avoiding these example discussions will mean your post is likely to be hidden by a moderator. Any continuation after that might mean you get a warning.

You must remember that this is the most popular and active thread on the forum. Its aim is to put all of the next update's information in one place so it can be discussed amongst the community. Other discussions like outlined in the examples above can be discussed in proper forum sections. Often official Gaijin members will respond on this thread so do be sure to remain respectful! Otherwise they may just stop.

 

Please use the Ground breaking thread to discuss Update "Ground Breaking". 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 mid-December 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.

also gotta give a 8/10 props for the new style for the front page!

 

just wish it was a slow moving gif like what they do for the "stream starting", but it is a personal preference, if remove it, solid 10

I have a far-fetched theory.. with Israel's full tech tree being introduced in December I imagine because it's a small tree they will want to use the opportunity to officially introduce early 4th generation jets into the game (with some third gen of course) to flesh it out and finally bring those jets into the game anyway.

i honestly hope it is a combined nation, i would love to see that.. but i don't want the ban hammer so i'll stop

 

i would not be surprised if they are not the first

I honestly would have never expected it in a million years. And I'm still shocked by the fact they announced it just a week before I was gonna post a suggestion for it. Made my year.

the pain of a premium a4 for Israel to have aim 9b

There are other Israeli a4 variants, those will probably have better missiles.

  • remodel F-4E with manoeuvring wing slats - Source

This can be removed.

@magazine2 Aircraft section now needs an Israeli section too.  Dassault Super Mystère B.2 Sambad & Sa'ar can immediately be added (models shown in the 2.07.0.55 CDK leak)

 

Done
