The current provided changelog reflects the major changes within the game as part of this Update. Some updates, additions and fixes may not be listed in the provided notes. War Thunder is constantly improving and specific fixes may be implemented without the client being updated.


Please just remove the drones. They serve no other purpose than to anger people for getting killed all of a sudden from space.


Attack drones do not serve a single other purpose than toxic revenge killing. No one asked for them, no one wants them.


No naval fixes? Come on. I’m sure there are quite many naval stuffs that need to be fixed right now.

For example, when are Renown’s too high BR, missing armor, incorrect draft, and lack of HE-VT on the secondary guns going to get fixed? These are all properly reported and known issues btw.


The drones would be fine if they were researchable like Helicopters are, anyone who would have a vehicle of rank VII could research them. Right now theyre just free 2 revenge kills for everyone because everyone gets access to them :/.


Well at least they are now in br where most of the nations get good SPAA vehicles to easily kill them before they can do much harm. Before when you could have encountered them with 9.7 - 10.0 lineups there was very little you can do to them unless you have a plane

No, I have 10.0 lineup and they are still here.

So that was just a “bug”!? Not a public response that forced marketing manager to fallback!? WOW

Not really. Helicopters have to spawn on the ground, and despite what people say they require a lot more skill to get work done compared to strike drones.


Indeed, it was a bug.

Then that makes them no different from CAS and helicopters in Top Tier…

Except Helicopters have up to 16 missiles instead of 2 just 2.

except that helicopters and cas have to be researched (or bought). Drones at br around 10 were just boring. If you get killed by a CAS or a helicopter at 10 it’s still fair but not by the drone.
Finally we get rid of this drone problem which could not be adequately addressed at BR 10.0 by AA.
Great change.

Of course, I agree very much with the drone BR increase!

My reply was in regards to “just removing drones from the game”, not the BR increase which I agree with.

You complain about the drones, but they are harmless compared to the many planes with much more attack and movement capabilities, they are not the problem, the problem is the planes, too numerous and much more harmful to the tanks .

Maybe drones should be purchased as “premium” so you don’t hate them anymore? …

I don’t know where you got the idea that I dont hate planes in ground rb but, as an almost aa main player believe me I hate planes or helis as much as drones. :]

But i wasnt talking about what helicopters can or cannot do and how much skill they require so why are you even pointing that out? I was saying the drones should be researchable in the same way as helis are in the terms of how you require certain rank to start researching them. I wasnt comparing the drones to them in terms of capabilities, so why are you even bringing up where helis can or cannot spawn?

Because even if you have to research them, they are still not fun to play against and two potentially free-kills for zero work. They are so braindead that they shouldn’t have been added to the game at all. The fact they have to keep increasing the BR which they appear shows they were a mistake imo.

Extremely frustrating to see orange(yellow for me) color on each crit while it should have this color only and ONLY if you set enemy on fire.
Green? - did gray was in mind!?

But you wouldnt meet that many of them because right now, theyre just a free pass into CAS for everyone that didnt even bother grinding any. And sure they werent fun to play against, what did you expect was going to happen when they added 21st century technology against stuff from Vietnam war era? Higher BR suits them more but my statement still stands, they should be researchable and not just a free CAS button.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.
The more those drones are pushed up the more useless they are and the less they are spawned.
Which is the best thing possible short of removing those awful things.
That is a excellent change.
