Hydroplanes also known as seaplanes, are an aircraft designed to both take off from and land on water. These aircraft have the unique ability to land and repair in the water (next to an airstrip or a carrier) as well as on land. This provides a strategic advantage in the game.
All of the hydroplanes currently in War Thunder can be used in the event "Floats!", with the sole exception of the A6M2-N.
Hydroplanes are divided into two categories: Large bombers called flying boats and smaller bombers/fighters called floatplanes.
Pilot's note: Hydroplanes/flying boats/float planes will continue to fly if the floats are knocked off, shot off or ripped off due to wind shear. Unfortunately if this happens the plane will not be able to land on water after that without crashing.
