Location and mission updates

  • Sweden — concrete barriers blocking passages along some streets have been removed to get rid of dead ends trapping players on the way to capture points.
  • The effect of destroying large fences has been changed — vertical particles that interfered with visibility have been removed.
  • Middle East — the hill in square G6 has been removed. Positions that allowed shooting at the spawn point from squares G7, F6, A1-2, and A5-6 have been removed. Flying bushes and bushes sticking out of rocks have been fixed.
  • Campania — larger vegetation has been removed from Capture Point A.
  • Sands of Snai — hills in squares C7 and F7 have been removed.
  • Advance to the Rhine — brick barricades have been removed from the park area. The size of the bushes has been reduced. Airfields, plane and helicopter spawns in all modes have been moved behind the teams.
  • Volcanic Island — boat spawns have been moved a little closer to the center of the map so that players can sail to the central area faster. The small islands in the center are a more natural shape now, higher and more varied in relation to point B. Some islands on the collision path between Bluewater fleet vehicles have been removed.
  • Fuego islands — in both [Domination] missions some islands near the C points have been removed, and the remaining ones have been moved away from the map center. In the low-tier mission the spawn points of Bluewater fleet have been moved East so that straight paths from them to the C point form a more acute angle.
  • South Kvarken — there were too many islands for Bluewater fleet vehicles. For boats, these islands were also large and there was too much space between the islands in the boat area. The southern part has been cleared of islands.
  • Aleutian Islands — the islands blocking and preventing the passage of Bluewater fleet vehicles to point C have been removed. Boat spawns have been moved closer to points A and B respectively. Larger ship spawns have been moved further away from point C to make movement the movement path a little more parallel between the two teams.
  • Tunisia — the terrain for the large version of missions ([Domination #2], [Battle #2]) on this location have been changed. The size of the mission has been reduced to 3.3 km, the large mountain along with the labyrinth has been removed. The river has been made passable for tanks in the game area. Places where tanks appear on the left side of the map have been changed. Small stones and stones protruding from beneath the floor to a small height have been removed. The height of dunes has been adjusted. The passage in grid square D1-E1 (in the new grid) has been made easier — the overlooking rock positions have been changed, the rocks which formed a dead end on the edge of the game area have been removed. Capture points for the 3.3 x 3.3 km [Battle #2] mission have been changed.
  • Carpathians — position in the upper part of the border between the D3 and D4 grid squares in the rocks near the capture point on the hill has been blocked.
  • European Province — positions that allowed players to safely fire at team spawn points on the left have been removed (B2).
  • Ardennes — airfields, plane and helicopter spawns in all modes have been moved behind the teams.
  • In the following “Operation” type Air Realistic Battle missions:
  • Golan Heights,
  • Kamchatka,
  • Pyrenees,
  • Vietnam (the usual version of the mission without the frontline, not the one based on the “Enduring Confrontation” logic),
  • Rocky Pillars

The following changes have been made:

  • Additional dispersal of ground forces: for all ranks the front line has become wider.

  • For all ranks, mobile units now also use a new path system and the higher the rank, the further the roads are from each other.

  • [Operation] Golan Heights (air spawns) — the mission for top ranks has been completely redesigned. It includes several checkpoints on the line of contact with the enemy, as well as MLRS, TBM, and radar located at different distances from the contact line.

  • [Operation] Mysterious Valley. Spaceport. A mission for all ranks at this location following the design described above has been added for the missions.

  • Kamchatka — the mission has been moved to a new location.

  • Changes to Air Realistic Battle locations:

  • Pyrenees — almost 20 square kilometers of mountains have been removed, since the mission for toptier battles requires large spaces. The valley in which the mission takes place has become much larger.

  • Rocky Pillars — a piece of the gorge in the eastern part of the location was completely removed, turning into a mountain valley. The mission at all ranks now expands into this valley and is not squeezed from all sides.

  • A mission with integrated training for Coastal fleet vehicles has been added — dynamic training in movement, shooting, targeting etc. has been added to the first battle that the player enters in naval battles of Coastal fleet vehicles for the first time.

  • Changes in Air Conquest mode:

  • Airfields for repairs and optional spawn of aircraft have been added.

  • Air defense at new airfields protects air spawn points.

  • For better protection from air defense, the height of the spawn of vehicles has been changed:

  • From 1000 m to 500 m for fighters and attack aircraft.

  • From 3000 m to 1500m for bombers.

  • In sessions with a Battle Rating of 6.7 and higher, the capture points have been changed from 2 ground and 1 air to 2 air and 1 ground.

  • Added moving ground vehicles.

  • Shifted bases and ground vehicles closer to capture points.

  • New missions have been added to:

  • The Vietnam location.

  • The Ladoga location.

  • The Normandy location

Ground Vehicle model, damage model, characteristic and weaponry changes:

  • The ability to shoot off wheels for all wheeled vehicles has been added.

  • New functional internal modules for armored vehicles have been added. These new types of modules do not require the Improved Parts modification module to repair them.

  • Autoloader — destroying this module stops the ability to reload the gun, but the possibility of shooting ammunition already loaded into the barrel remains.

  • Fire Control System (FCS) — destroying this module blocks subsystems linked to the FCS depending on the combat vehicle, such as rangefinders, night vision devices, LWRs and the gun stabilizer. The list of parts can be checked in the module tooltip in X-ray mode when hovering over the FCS module.

  • Power system — damaging this module can cause a module fire and also stops the operation of associated systems such FCS, or the radar. The list of parts can be checked in the module tooltip in X-ray mode when hovering over the Power system module.

  • Driver controls — damaging this module stops the possibility of driving and turning.

  • Electronic equipment — damaging this module stops the possibility of using sensors such as IRST, LWR and radar.

  • The probability of an explosion and fire of fuel tanks on their destruction has been increased. The structural strength of fuel tanks (the amount of damage received before complete destruction) has been increased to compensate for the increased likelihood of explosion and a fire when a tank is destroyed by successive hits from weak weapons. Powerful weapons still can destroy fuel tanks in one hit.

  • The parameters of the high-explosive impact of shaped-charge shells, ATGMs with shaped-charge warheads and HESH shells have been reworked to ensure the mechanics of penetrating through thin armor at the point of impact by the high-explosive part of the explosion.

  • An additional alarm when there is a fire in ammunition magazines have been added. If any of the cellars catch fire or receive fire damage, an additional siren is triggered, which differs from a regular fire alarm, and a voice event about a fire in the cellar is played. Additionally, the fire extinguisher button is highlighted in an orange color.
  • Changes to the hitcam:
  • The order of display of layers of different ship elements has been changed. Parts of the hull structure are moved to the rear layer and can be obscured by more important elements, for example, various crew modules.
  • For greater clarity, a small animation for the destruction of a module has been added.
  • Icons of fires on an enemy ship have been added instead of highlighting fire points. They appear where and in the amount of fires occurred.
  • The display of anti-torpedo buoys, fuel tanks and coal bunkers has been removed.
  • The icon of the main caliber guns has been updated (including in the action panel).
  • A button for cycling through weapon groups has been added — in addition to switching weapon groups via ALT+1, ALT+2 and ALT+3, a CTRL+E shortcut has been added, by which groups are selected cyclically.
  • An option to display the crew has been added to the Protection Analysis. To use it, go to the Armor > Protection Analysis section in the hangar. Select the camera angle on the ship and click the “Show crew distribution” button. The density of the crew will be projected on the ship’s hull. The green areas show the places where there are the least number of crew, and red areas where there are more.

Economy and research

  • The MPK Pr.12412 has been moved in the Coast fleet research tree after the MBK-161 late.
  • F-16C, Barak II, MiG-29SMT, JAS39С (South Africa), JAS39EBS HU C, Mirage 2000-5F — their Battle Ratings in all Air Battle modes have been increased to 13.0.
  • AV-8B Plus, J-8F — their Battle Ratings in all Air Battle modes have been increased to 12.3.


  • Following the Roadmap: Ability to place a vehicle into a crew slot from the research tree by dragging and dropping it with the mouse has been added.

  • The ability to remove vehicles from a preset by dragging and dropping them into a remove box has been added. To do this, click on a vehicle in your preset and drag it into the remove box area.

  • The appearance of the slotbar for crews and vehicles in the hangar and in battle has been changed in order to make it more visually convenient and easy to use:

    • Each vehicle crew has been divided into two sections. The block above the vehicle contains information for a battle, and the lower block is interactive, showing a crew of a given slot.
    • The mission block in the hangar shows the number of backups activated for a vehicle. In battle, it shows the required number of Spawn Points (SP) for a vehicle, the remaining number of spawns on a given vehicle or a type of vehicle, the remaining number of backups for a given vehicle, the possibility of using a backup for respawning, and so on.
    • The new crew block allows you to quickly assess the need and possibility of crew training. If a crew has experience points, a corresponding icon now appears next to its level. When you hover over a new crew slot, a tooltip appears with detailed information about it and a button to go to the training window.
  • The ability to collapse/expand vehicle ranks in the research tree has been added. To do this click the collapse arrow next to the Rank in the left of the research tree.

  • In battle, a tank minimap is now displayed when using a UAV.

  • In battle, a naval minimap is now displayed when using a scout hydroplane.

Game mechanics

  • For Air Realistic Battles, a game mode setting that allows you to participate in battles with smaller team sizes (maximum 12 players per team) has been added. To enable the option, go to the game mode selection window (under the “To Battle!” button), then on the Air Realistic Battles button. Here click “Game Mode Settings” and toggle the “Participate in battles with smaller team sizes” option. This option is only available for aircraft with a Battle Rating of 10.0 or higher.


  • Sky glare when looking at the sun at dawn/sunset has been reduced.


  • The sounds of aircraft missiles are now chosen based on their maximum thrust and are divided into three types: small, medium and large. Previously, there was only one set of “start-flight” sounds for all types of missiles. Additionally, now the sound of a missile’s flight takes the thrust mode into account.

  • Missiles passing the player at supersonic speed now have a shockwave sound, similar to supersonic airplanes.

  • Jet and piston aircraft as they move away from the player have a flanger effect at the tail of the sound — a kind of floating sound formed by overlap of direct and reflected sound from the ground surface. This effect is generated in real time and has physical parameters at its core.

  • Helicopters now have sounds of flying past the listener, similar to airplanes and missiles.

  • Fires on ships are now voiced in more varied ways.

  • The sound of aircraft guns have been improved. Clarity and dynamics of gunshot sounds have been improved.

  • The voice acting of the crews on German naval vessels has been improved, phrases have been corrected and complemented.

  • The crew of Lithuanian ground vehicles (the Vilkas) have received their own voice acting.

  • The voices of ground crews now sound more clear. Radio effect processing has become less destructive, and when viewed from the gunner/driver, voices are heard taking into account the space of the fighting compartment.

  • A mid-frequency layer has been added to close explosions of shells and bombs to make them feel more aggressive and to give more sense of danger.

  • The falling sound that smoke shells make when marking an artillery strike has changed. Now the hiss of the smoke can only be heard close to the place of impact, while at a distance only the pop of the shell falling and exploding can be heard.

  • Distant tank shots have been adjusted in the mid-range region for a more natural and less harsh sound.

  • New voice events have been added to Naval Battles. For example, change of the shell type, preparation for launch, launch itself and a loss of scout aircraft, detonation of ammo magazines, target acquisition and loss of target track with radar and many more.

  • In naval battles, the fire alarm signal has been replaced. A special alarm signal when there is a fire in the ammunition magazines has been added.

What do you mean what? It’s a Hungarian Leopard 2A7V for Italy.


Can I propose another change? Replace the Yak-38 bots with something else, they are very difficult to eliminate with 8.0-9.0 aircraft, and they are the source for a lot of ticket bleed.


its a further evolution of the 2A7V which was customized by the customer, but its most likely just a typo as Its also properly called 2A7HU on the Dev server


YOOOO lets goo, fire update frfr, actually super exciting! Can’t wait to hop on the dev server this weekend!


@Macekeeks is this what I think it is???


Dev server dying atm, infinite loads and stuff.


it seems the 2A4M CAN has gen 1 thermals for now atleast didnt it get upgraded thermals at some point IRL


Yeah. It says it can’t find profile after connecting for like 5 minutes.

How upgraded F-15J got “Kai”?
I’ve searched a lot of stuff about F-15J and it upgrades and never seen any mention of it upgrades called kai. I feel like variant is just completely made up from assumptions with 0 sources read by devs.


Are python 4s for the F15c imrpoved baz being looked at?


dev server is extremely poor it took me 5 minutes to connect and it takes forever to get back to hangar whenever you test drive or play

I think too many people trying to connect at once


F4F Ice : “You guys get Aim -9Ms?” <.<


How about you buy one for me ;)

The current J11A is just the old J11 + R77.
Can we get the complete form of J11A (N001V / New MFD / RWR /MWS ) when development is completed?


I’m currently away from my computer: but can someone tell me how dodgeable the ARHs are? Currently grinding out the F-15 and F-16A, and neither exactly are fun stock… Is it worth it to just never play them again because ARHs will be impossible to avoid

the SPO-15L is a new RWR? How much different is it from the SPO-15 and SPO-15LM?
