The new update bring tons of new content, including Hungarian tanks and helicopters
Gaijin Entertainment announces the release of the major update “Sons of Attila” for the online military action game War Thunder. In addition to the Hungarian ground vehicles line-up, dozens of other combat vehicles have been added to the game – for example, Leclerc AZUR and Leopard 2 PSO tanks, Super Etendard carrier-based attack aircraft, MiG-29SMT multi-role fighter, Improved Chaparral SAM system, Arkansas battleship and Norwegian VIDAR SPG. New visual effects and game features include wind-bending trees and the ability to shoot off external ammunition from enemy vehicles. A new “Rocky Pillars” map based on the landscapes of Southeast Asia have also been added to the game.

There is something special about each of the new vehicles in the game. Leopard 2 PSO and Leclerc AZUR are versions of the famous modern tanks, created specifically for urban warfare. French Super Etendard attack aircraft became famous during the Falklands War – it was these machines in the service of the Argentine Air Force that sank the British destroyer Sheffield. The VIDAR SPG is an export version of the modern South Korean K9 Thunder, which in recent years has been in great demand on the arms market.
“Sons of Attila” brings seven new helicopters for various game nations: OH-58D for the U.S. and China, Mi-8TV for the USSR and Germany and a line-up of Hungarian helicopters (three modifications of the Mi-24, including premium Mi-24P). The Mi-8TV is especially interesting as it’s an assault version of the popular transport helicopter that carries the largest payload in the game.
Finally, authentic voice informant warnings appear on modern airplanes and helicopters. “Rita” or “Bitchin’ Betty”, as they are usually called by Russian and American pilots respectively, will warn of dangerous altitude, critical overload, duplicate the signal of the irradiation warning station, and inform about the readiness of guided weapons. “Rita” will be received by the Ka-50, Ka-52, Mi-28N, Mi-28NM, Mi-24V, Mi-24P and MiG-29, while “Betty” will be available on the F-16 and AH-64D.
