War Thunder's Realism Under Attack: The Controversy of Cockpit Destruction

That’s impressive to say the least.

WW2 is a thing, since then, plane desing suffered a lot for reaching supersonic flight, match tuk, etc … but flying without canopy doesn’t almost affect fly performance, you hear everything better, but you don’t hear the turbulence of air inside de cockpit … realistic ? My balls, this is pure fantasy

WT is a shooter.

Answer no. Often enclosed cockpits depending on their quality inhibited sight.
So many opened their cockpit to gain better sight. This wasn’t common with the US though. Their cockpits converted to Bubble domes which gave an incredibly clear view.

Really, this completely compromises the immersion of the game. You find yourself forced to open the cockpit to match the enemy.
