New locations and missions
- "Arctic" location for combined battles.

- Standardisation of tank types by BR and armour for different matchmaking ranks and nations.
- Ground vehicles of rank VII have been added to the templates for ground battles and convoys.
- AAA around bombing bases has been moved to a system of importing units from a rank based list - now each rank will have its own air defense and not 88mm AAA from WWII era.
- The logic of bombing bases, airfields, port and sea convoy templates has been redesigned that allows the "saving" of about 100 units which should reduce the server load.
- In events where aircraft AI glitches and sends AI bombers/Attackers over the playable map area, a mechanic has been introduced that checks if the AI aircraft are in the wrong place, checks if they have completed the task, resets the AI for the selected aircraft and if the task is completed hides the aircraft by marking the task as completed and if not looks for a new target for them.

- VAB SANTAL - Comment for the vehicle: our players have provided extensive and useful information as a result of their analysis it was decided to further refine the model of the vehicle. The modifications will consist of changing and refining the model for launchers, aiming devices and the turret used but retaining the current chassis model. Since most of the changes are made to the appearance of the model and will not affect battle characteristics after making them, it was decided that the vehicle will be added in this update in the current form with the characteristics corresponding to the real model of the turret and fire control system. When the fixes for the vehicle will be ready they will be applied to it. Thank you for your consideration.

- The mechanism of accruing RP in the system of the rewards for useful actions (already used in air SB and helicopter battles) has been changed. Now RP will be awarded in the same way as SL - for each time interval and not once at the end of the mission.

The system of rewards for useful actions is used in modes without a clear flight between the two teams, so the difference in SB and helicopter battles has also been removed.
- In air SB we have added the mechanics of delayed RP accrual when landing on an airfield that operates similar to the SL mechanics. Now, 15 minute intervals will be given 80% of the calculated reward and the remaining 20% after successful return and landing on the airfield.
