What is your opinion on the presence of “copy-paste” planes (unmodified planes that are already in the game) in the Latin American Tree?
  • I don’t mind them/I don’t care about them
  • I’m fine with them, as long as they are only used to fill gaps or form line-ups

Latin American Air Forces Tree


Fan-made promotional image of the tree


Hello everyone. I’d like to present a propostal for a new tech tree for War Thunder: The Latin American Air Forces Tree (or just LATAM tree for short).

This project initially started with a Ground Tree (make sure to check that out too!), but during its development it soon grew to include the other vehicle trees as well. This time we’d like to present the Air Tree, essential for a future implementation of LATAM into War Thunder.

The bulk of the tree consists of domestic modifications and modernizations of foreign planes (like the Finger IIIa, F-5EM or the Mirage 50CN Pantera), as well as foreign planes built to a Latin American country’s specifications (such as the Ca.135 Tipo Peru, Martin 139WAA or the Ba.65 Tipo Chile). However, domestic designs are also featured here with Argentina playing a key role at that (with the Calquín, Ñancú and Pulqui II), plus a smaller contribution by Brazil (with the Super Tucano and AMX A-1).

There is a fair amount planes in the tree that people could consider as “copy-pastes”, but upon closer inspection you’ll realise that they aren’t exactly that. We made sure to pick variants that are not yet in the game (like the A-20K Havoc, a variant featuring a glass nose), following what Gaijin has done in the French or Italian trees. Most of the actual copy-pastes are just premiums.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the complete tree:




Thanks to zanju13 for the WT Tech-Tree Maker tool

Please be aware that the position of the vehicles within the tree, as well as the ranks and battle ratings are merely a suggestion made by us, to get a good sense about the tree. We also took the liberty to work on this tree to make it ready for War Thunder’s future, going beyond the current max BR and rank.

The Air Tree is made out of 14 Latin American Countries. Argentina and Brazil make up more than half of it, with Chile and other countries complementing it.

I like to see the Pampas as our equivalent of the Alpha Jet, but sure :P

IIRC we just didnt add it because it isnt unique to Bolivia AFAIK, but otherwise a viable addition and at the same time something new to the game

I noticed that the Brazilian Gloster Meteor was not suggested, so here’s one more for the list, the Brazilian Gloster Meteor F.Mk.8, the first jet fighter that Brazil operated.
*I just saw that the suggestion is more about versions of planes that haven’t yet been introduced into the game, but it’s still an honorable mention.
