Biplanes

Biplanes are aircraft that mount two sets of wings. These wings produce a lot of lift, helping turning (see Turn and Burn) and low-speed flight in general. However, the extra drag produced by the added set of wings limits the aircraft's speed significantly, hence biplane manufacturing having been phased out by the beginning of World War II. This is noticeable in War Thunder in that there is only one biplane above Tier I, the Tier II I-153P Chaika, a late cannon-armed modification of the Polikarpov biplane.

Most biplanes don't have flaps. However, some do, and the typical biplane feature of a fixed landing gear means that using the "toggle flaps" key will only serve to toggle from the "raised" setting to "landing". To deploy flaps at a combat or takeoff position, one should use the commands "lower flaps" or "raise flaps".
