Flight model creation in War Thunder

SBDs in flight. Their behaviour in air is determined by the flight model (FM)

Detailed tuning, when correctly simulated in the game, provides a means to automatically implement all the effects inherent to flight – effects such as rotor spin from oncoming airflow, tail-spin, drag force in a dive and so on. The following simulation improvements also provide a means to make aircraft tuning easier, since even if there is insufficient information available about a given aircraft, we still have the ability to simulate its in-game behavior, which will be as close as possible to its real-life prototype when all the aircraft's known parameters are provided. Our simulation provides a means to calculate, in real time, any changing parameters...

Most of the time spent on tuning flight models is spent searching for and studying as much documentation as possible on the aircraft, and also determining the reliability of those documents and how well they correlate. For various tests and examinations, factory data often differs significantly in the most basic parameters, and for some aircraft...

Did you know that...

  • there is a drivers view and even binoculars? Go into controls and click on "tank controls". The key to enter it can be set up there. The same way you can enable binoculars.
  • different steel types exist for armour? Every metal has got its own modifier e.g. cast steel is only 90% as strong as rolled homogenes steel (which is the standard armour plate). All part of the damage mechanics.
  • reducing the vehicles ammo load, affects the ammo storage by making them smaller and once empty disappear. Empty Ammo Racks cannot be exploded and are literally empty space.
  • The P-47 Thunderbolt can carry 1774kg of explosives. That is more than any attackers can except for the F-82E with 2x 2000lbs (1814kg).
  • the "Jug" (P-47D) outclasses the following bombers in payload: PBJ, B-25, TBF, Tu-2, SB 2M, Ar-2, Pe-2, G4M1, Ki-49, and the H6K4 (if torpedos are ignored).
  • rockets can be shot down mid-air by gun fire?
  • torpedoes can destroy bridges, if they hit the pillars.
