Examples of bugs corrected by player reports

Msg-info.png As previously, we want to thank you for correctly created bug reports! Below you will find some of the bug fixes that were possible with your help. You continue to assist us to make War Thunder better!
  • Incorrect reload speed for the last shell in the first-order ammo racks has been fixed (source).
  • The weight of the М1А1 Abrams tank has been changed from 59 to 57.15 ton. According to "Tank Platoon: Headquarters Department of the Army (April 1996)" (source).
  • Earlier missing torpedo lead indication has been fixed for IJN Kiyoshimo (source).
  • Belt composition of the 7.92 mm S-100 machine gun has been fixed(1944) (source).
  • Incorrect texture of the Firefly Scorpion anti-aircraft machine gun has been fixed (source).
  • Shifting of the crosshairs on the sights in aircraft cockpits has been fixed (source).
  • Bugs in the hull roof armour of the M26E1, through which the driver and gunner could be hit have been fixed (source).
  • Incorrect armour of the gun mantlet of the Т-34-85 Gai (China) has been fixed. Gun mantlet is now equal to the Т-34-85 (USSR) (source).
  • "Gaps" in the armour for the following tanks have been fixed: M22, M60, Magach 3, T32, T32E1, Heavy Tank No.6, ST-A1, ST-A2, Type 61, Centurion (from multiple bug reports).
  • The work of the rangefinder on helicopters with missing or removed nose turret have been restored (source).
  • Incorrect behavior in the established turn with flaps released on the aircraft of the MiG series and some others have been fixed (source).
  • Incorrect display of jet exhaust which could be displayed ahead of the aircraft has been fixed (source).
  • Many sound artifacts have been fixed. For example sound artifacts in battles longer than 40 minutes (from many bug reports).

Enduring Confrontation

  • Cargo ships have been added to the naval convoys.
  • A bug on the "La Manche" location, where some airfields in hostile territory continued to operate even after capturing a port or advancing the front line, has been fixed.
  • A bug where capturing the port allows the enemy bombing zone near the port to remain an active target has been fixed. Now such zones will be considered as captured and disappear.
  • In the "Saipan" mission the front line (except ground battles) has been partly switched on as it is required by the port capture logic.
  • Ship setups for AI now depends on the rank of battles.
  • Hydroplanes and sea planes can now be repaired and rearmed in friendly ports.
  • Ports now have security units. Port can not be captured without destroying them. Destroyed units reappear after some time and damage will be restored. In the case of port capture, security units will respawn for the side which has captured the port to aid in its protection.
  • AI cost guard units have been added on the coast of the La Manche and Saipan location which act on the principle of any other background units (active only if there are some players nearby and if the limit of the active units isn't exceeded).

Ground Vehicle model, damage model, characteristic and weaponry changes:

  • 2S6 - 2S6M modification has been added. BR for all game modes have been changed from 10 to 10.3.

Flight Model changes:

  • The "Hold roll angle" button has been added to the control settings for helicopters in the "mouse aiming mode". The new feature allows you to turn on the helicopter'S roll hold. This allows the helicopter to make lateral movements (strafe) without constantly entering the commands into the roll channels, compensate roll drift during the movement and drift of the helicopter at high and low speeds and adjust the radius and sharpness of the turn at high speed. The range of the roll angles in which the hold works is limited by +/-30 degrees but can be individual for some helicopters.
  • F.222.2, NC.223.32 - Flight model has been updated. A bug with very quick engine overheating on takeoff mode has been fixed. Stability and controllability of the aircraft by performing manoeuvres under using full control type have been improved.

Alignment range has been fixed (the aircraft is easier to operate on all control types). More precise fuel distribution on the tanks and the order of its consumption has been applied (first will be used fuel from the tanks close to the wing console).
  • VG.33 - Flight model has been fully updated. The operation of the propeller group and powerplant has been corrected and improved. Wing and fin aerodynamics have been recalculated. The cooling system has been updated (overheating is now less severe).

  • Battle (D14) - 114mm stern cannon has been added to the main calibre group.
  • Battle (D14) - Ammunition for 114mm stern cannon has been corrected. Non relevant modification of anti air armament targeting has been deleted. RP and game currency spent for the research will be returned to the account. The 40mm Bofors have been moved to the category of secondary weaponry.

  • HMS Grafton
    • Earlier missing torpedo lead indication has been fixed.
    • Ammo use for bomb mortars has been fixed.
    • 12.7mm Vickers have been moved from the anti-aircraft group to the auxiliary group. Modification of the improved Anti-Air Armament Targeting has been replaced by the Auxiliary Armament Targeting. In-game currency and RP for the researched modification will be returned to the account.
  • 165 ft PC-466 Carmi - The operation of the bomb mortars has been fixed.
  • IJN Kiyoshimo - Earlier missing torpedo lead indication has been fixed.

Naval modifications and crew skills:

  • HMS Southampton - The position of the smoke screen modification in the modification window has been fixed.
  • Type-K3/No.1 - Bomb mortar modification which created nothing has been removed. In-game currency and RP for the researched modification will be returned to the account.

  • Erroneous elements in sound design for a number of vehicles have been fixed.
  • FMOD version has been updated from 1.10.11 to 1.10.17.


  • Controlling a helicopter in mouse aim mode you can now set the neutral roll from the keyboard. This allows you for example to aim the helicopter with the mouse and fly sideways at the same time as well as compensate for drift due to propeller pull. To do this you need to activate "Manual roll control" mode.


  • Trees are now non transparent for optical sights and guiding devices, for example such as, ADATS or Stormer SPAAGs, or Ka-50 or AH-1Z.
  • Trees are now half-transparent for radars. Radar distance shortens for every tree in its scan direction.

Naval characteristics, physics and damage model
  • Hiburi-class, Syonan, 1944 - buoyancy centre position has been corrected.
  • Ignition parameters for fuel tanks have been fixed. Previously set parameters more often led to fires, including the ignition of empty tanks.
