Kings of Battle - Rumor Round-Up and Discussion (Part 2)

Continuing the discussion from Next Major Update - Rumor Round-Up and Discussion (Part 1) - #10125 by Alex_ツ.

Previous discussions:


WELCOME to the War Thunder - Rumor Round-Up and Discussion Thread!

Here you can discuss everything related to the upcoming major update, including rumors, data mines, and dev blogs.


However, please AVOID these types of discussions:

Wishlisting. Some examples:

  • “I want the F-22 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 the XYZ!”
  • 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, feedback for dev-server or testing. 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”
  • “This thing is bugged on the dev server, devs please fix it!”

You can make a bug report here and suggestion here. When the dev server is up, use the DEV Server Section for feedback.

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 also remember that everyone is entitled to their own opinions on what may be coming. If you follow the forum rules, you’ll be okay!

Please use the Sons of Attila Thread to discuss Major Update “Sons of Attila”. Complaining here won’t solve anything and is considered off-topic.

I would be happy for the PL-12 if US and Russia got AIM-120B and R-77 respectively.

In French it’s mean “hand”.

Do what you want with this information.

Always a pleasure.

AIM-120B is much worse than PL-12 tho. AIM-120C would be comparable.

It could very possible be an early aircraft with it. I can see them adding a few aircraft with Fox 3 this update and then adding to the rest in Dec. That I think would be F3 (or better yet adding the Shar FA2), AV-8B+ and the J8-F
