Alternative names: War Thunder

War Thunder - full immersion during the Second World War

The PC game War Thunder is based on the real events of World War II, using various military equipment of the time. Today in the game you can fight on tanks, planes, ships, fighters and helicopters. All types of military equipment of those years, worked out to the smallest detail. It all started with aviation, but the developers decided not to stop there and make the game as realistic as possible by adding other types of combat vehicles.

The creators took the historical part of the project seriously, the game War Thunder completely recreates the real events of military operations. By joining this project, the user finds himself in a different time and can study the history of the war by independently participating in the events of that time. The historical component is not the only thing that is as close as possible to the truth, the developers, when creating aircraft and tanks, studied the features of each model, all units of military equipment coincide with prototypes, appearance and technical characteristics. The physics of the game itself is also as close to reality as possible, the tracks of the tank may break or the chassis may be damaged after a hard hit into the pit.

An air simulator, as the authors of this project originally conceived, but the game went beyond a simple multiplayer online game, in which the main idea was military strategy and flight simulation. By adding additional equipment to the project, the developers brought the game to a new global level. All equipment can be conditionally divided into what flies, floats and travels on the ground. In other words, aviation, helicopters, ground vehicles and the navy.

Initially, it was possible to fly or travel on combat units of only a few countries. But today more than 10 are represented in the game: USA, Germany, USSR, Great Britain, Japan, China, Italy, France, Sweden and Israel. Each country is unique in its own way and the technique also has its own characteristics. Someone is strong in the production of tanks, someone is great at making planes, and someone is invincible at sea. In order to understand the global nature of battles, you must understand that a large number of players are in battle at once and they can attack you from any direction.
