The following sound changes have been reverted back to how they were before the Seek & Destroy major update due to feedback surrounding them, and some will be reworked:

  • The changes to ground vehicle crew voices, and the clarity and audability of commands, in particular due to the echo when viewed from the gunner.
  • All explosion sounds due to the updated nature of the sound.
  • The sounds of artillery shells falling due to the annoying nature of the sound.
  • All long-range shots from ground vehicle cannons due to their monotony and “dull” sound.
  • The M61 Vulcan and GAU12 mutli-barrel guns, we realise the updated sound was not seen as an improvement.
  • The volume levels of all sounds, there are no changes now compared to what they were before the update.


  • A bug that caused Squadron Activity points to not be given has been fixed. (Report).

Patch notes reflect only key changes, meaning they may not include a complete list of all improvements made. Additionally, War Thunder is constantly being updated and some changes may not require an update. Changes reflected in patch notes are formed by taking reactions and requests of the community from the bug reporting service, forums and other official platforms into account. Bug fixes and changes are implemented in order of importance, for example a game-breaking bug will be worked on and implemented sooner.


Good thing the sound changes are being reverted. I really hated it after the major update, especially the arty sound


Very cool, I’m glad you reverted it.

This one wasn’t that bad IMO, but I can see why some would prefer the old.

Thanks for taking our feedback into consideration!


BR is reduced too, right? Right?



Now we just need the other JAS39A/C Reports to be fixed as well! :D

Honestly, some of the sounds were “fine” but oddly implemented and or had an odd “mixing” done to them making the sound out of place compared to the environment.
Compare it to like hearing someone talk as if their in an empty bathroom whilst in reality standing in the forest.


No IRST bug fix ? It affects dozens of vehicles…

very nice


You gotta make the radar on the j11A better it’s so sad that it only can lock one person at a time but your giving other nations the ability to have more data link channels. It could have the N001VE that was meant for the MLU upgrade on j11A that was meant to make the j11 to be be able to launch fox threes or the j11b with the type 1493 radar but the j11 needs more love


i saw padme face. =D

More chance of pigs flying mate, didn’t give it blow out panels either or a spall liner… Hilarious

For the longest time the day of the update I thought there was some autocannon near me it freaked me out. It took me multiple battles to finally realize it was arty. WTF was that idea of a sound ? Chugchugchugchugchug… Bruh.

Really happy they reverted it. I’ve liked most sound changes up to this update but this time was bad. I enjoyed none of it. Wasn’t that tested on the dev server prior to release ??

The 2S38 can still fire indefinitely without jamming or overheating while the Namer got fixed overnight lol, it really goes to show how quick they are to fix anything that’s not Russian.


Still no fix for NVDIA Reflex being broken.

@Stona_WT, can we expect a fix for this anytime soon? Or just any acknowledgment of this issue would be great.

wait why sea harrier fa2- a bug that caused the BOL pods to not carry any countermeasures have not be fixed?

Man, Challenger 3 ain’t looking so hot


Why would it? DM53 is still the primary round of the tank.

Which bug is this? is there a report?

Challenger 3 TD HP shouldn’t have been reduced as it is a technical demonstrator not the prototype and even if the TD had the CV12-9A at minimum it should have 1350 hp !!


DM53 is the primary round of the Ariete as well

oh, cannons go back to sounding like crap. After the patch they finally had some ‘weight’ to the sound…
