The premium Ki-61 was up-ranked. Why?

Premium variant of the Ki-61-I Hei was upranked, which meant effectively doubling its cost. It was the first premium plane I wanted to buy but this cost just doesn’t seem justified.

it was literally announced almost two months ago.
It was upranked because of BR and Rank changes over the years as well as a genereal re-structuring of the tech trees.

I literally don’t follow WT news that aren’t in the game, and I literally started looking into premiums literally about a month ago.

“It’s changed because things we changing” is not a very good explanation, but I’ll look into it, thanks.

You should at least read news on the warthunder home page. If you don’t want to be surprised you need to keep up with general announcements.

Remember there is a annual sale later in the year and you may see the premium vehicle for a discount. Probably 30 or 50 % off.

If you were looking to get a premium Chinese helicopter, just a reminder: Z-19E Pack (will be retired after the promotion ends 6th of October at 11:00 GMT.) It was in a recent announcement.

Yeah, learned about the sale soon after the update. Thanks!
