- First-order ammo racks with around 10-20 shots per cannon have been added for large caliber artillery ships. Rate of fire when using first-order ammo racks have been set to the maximum theoretically possible. The rate of fire when using shells from the ammunition stores has remained the same. So vessels which can use first-order ammo racks can shoot several times (7-10%) faster than its standard fire rate. Fires and detonations of the first-order ammo rack will not be fatal for the ship and can cause damage only on the surrounding modules and cause damage to the crew placed within them.
- For ships with separated ammunition stores, they have been divided into stores for shells and stores for loading. Fires within the loading stores is not fatal for the ship and can lead to the loss of some or all ammunition in the store and also to damages of the surrounding modules.
- The mechanics of ammunition supply elevators have been added. A damaged elevator can lead to a reduction of the reload speed to the connected cannon battery of between 8-10%. A destroyed elevator can lead a reduction of the reload speed to the connected cannon battery of 20%. One cannon or turret can be operated by several elevators - in the event of maximum damage or destruction for all elevators of this cannon, the reduction will not exceed 10% and 20% respectively.
- The effect of smoke funnel damage on the ship's speed loss has been halved.
- Repair speed of torpedoes placed in torpedo tubes has been increased.

Economy and research
- M60A1 Ariete - Stabilizator has been removed. BR for all game modes has been changed from 8.3 to 7.7.
- Costs for shells with a calibre of 57 mm or higher have been changed (mostly reduced). For cruiser calibres, ammunition costs have been reduced. For example the armour-piercing shell of the Kirov now costs 10 SL instead of 70 SL earlier. Semi-armour-piercing shell of the Leader now costs 9 SL instead of 50 SL earlier. Armour-piercing shell of the Brooklyn now costs 10 SL instead of 20 SL earlier.
- BR of the following destroyers has been changed:
- Sumner (DD-692) from 4.3 to 4.7.
- Somers (DD-381) from 4.3 to 4.7.
- Tashkent (leader) from 4.3 to 4.7.
- Possibility to create custom user camouflage for ships has been added.
- The visibility in the research tree of event vehicles which are available for purchase on the market has been added on the PC version of the game (not available for the consoles).
- The displayed warning regarding the impossibility of retracting landing gear when using suspended boosters has been fixed.
- New game mode "World War" has been launched as OBT. In this game mode players can participate in the reconstruction of famous historical battles. In the first season "Recon under Fire" which will last until the 10th of June you will be able to participate in the "Battle of Vitebsk", Operation "Nordwind", "Battle for Caen" and "Second Battle of El Alamein".
- The ability to hit ATGMs whilst in flight as well as moving torpedoes, bombs and un-guided aircraft missiles with a direct hit from weaponry, shells as well as with the effects of explosions (shockwave and fragments in the air and water) has been added. Bombs with delayed fuse mode enabled already dropped of surfaces (ground) are also subject to all these factors.
- The algorithm for anti-aircraft missile guidance has been reworked. Now, when the missile is aimed at a target, the control system will keep the missile on the line of sight itself. The target locking accuracy depends on the angular velocity of the target, the distance to it (course parameter) and the maneuverability of the missile. There is no need to manually pre-aim by moving the line of sight in front of targets that have a low angular velocity.
- New types of sensors - passive optical systems, have been added. Such types of sensors will not be detected by radar warning system indications and can detect and track targets covertly. These systems have been implemented on the Stormer HVM - ADAD (Air Defence Alerting Devices) and Bradley ADATS (Air Defense Anti-Tank System). Passive detecting systems can only provide direction for the detected target. The measured range to the target it must be taken into account.
- Possibility of launching the AGM-114B missile in LOAL (Lock-on After Launch) mode has been added. To operate in this mode the player needs to turn on the target pointer and point it towards the target and launch the missile. The initial point on the surface of where the sights are aimed at will be selected as the coordinates for the inertial guidance system of the missile. After the launch, the target designation can be switched off for the duration of the missile's flight and on just before it hits the target.
- The mechanics of air and ground-based radars have been reworked. The following features have been added:
- Target tracking errors have been added. For example: surface-to-air missiles of Tunguska have a maximum range of 8 km. In real life at this distance its tracking radar has a tracking error over two times greater than the radius of the missile proximity fuse and kill radius as well. The only way to increase hit probability is to use the optical sight.
- "Multipath" effect has been added. Radar signal that is reflected from the target and re-reflected from the surface and appears to come from underground is indistinguishable from the signal of the target. The effect occurs when a target flies at altitudes less than 100 m (and will increase as flight altitudes decrease) which will lead to errors when measuring elevation angles - the tracking radar is looking below the target. In this case it is also recommended to switch to optical sight tracking.
- Ground clutter has been added. Early fighter radar stations were not able to detect targets because of strong ground reflections. This effect depends heavily on the altitude of the fighter aircraft and the elevation of the radar beam. At low altitudes, the radar stations were blind. The targets under the fighter were poorly detected, or not detected at all.
- Respawn costs (Spawn points) for ground vehicles of BR 8.0 and higher have been changed:
- Helicopters without ATGMs have been reduced by 15-20%.
- Helicopters with ATGMs have been reduced by 15-20%
- For aircraft above BR 8.0, spawn costs have been reduced to the same values as aircraft of BRs lower than 8.0.
- For all aircraft and helicopters, the costs of spawning is now linked to the BR of the vehicle (same as onBRs lower than 8.0).
- Respawn costs in ground battles RB for the following vehicles have been changed:
- Flakpanzer I: reduced by 2 times.
- OTOMATIC: increased by 2 times.
- M3 Bradley: reduced by 25%.
- The possibility to choose air respawn point for helicopters has been switched off in ground RB.
- A vessel’s ability to escape from a shoal in naval battles has been improved.
- The appearance of clouds for the graphic settings "max" and "movie" has been improved.
- Preparation works for the transition to the new sound engine (project which already has sound events that have been made and prepared; sound databases which contains sound resources for the game has been created; support of new api for the new sound engine has been added; resources for all vehicles and weapons have been reworked for the support of the new sound engine).
- Mechanics of simultaneous support of the old and new sound engines has been created. New sound engine will be switched on shortly after the release of update 1.89 and at different times for different platforms.
- Gamepad vibration has been improved (for PC and for consoles). Now vibration works on all vehicle control types (was previously only on aircraft) and there are additional vibration settings in the gamepad tab in the game settings (Options → Main parameters → Gamepad settings).
- Romanian language has been added.

- A bug with the “black” ammunition main calibre cellars on cruisers and destroyers has been fixed. If the main calibre ammunition cellar is destroyed, it will now explode.
- The damage models of cruisers and destroyers have been refined:
- Overestimated bulkhead and deck thicknesses have been fixed;
- Side thicknesses have been increased on many destroyers up to 23 mm, which no longer allows many of the 88-127 mm shells to penetrate the ship enough to explode.
- Several ship modules such as pumps, fuel tanks, cisterns, transmission shafts, torpedo launchers and depth bomb launchers will no longer easily stop medium to large calibre armour-piercing shells. Now, with enough power, these shells will be able to punch through them.
- Transmission shafts, propellers and rudder feathers are now less susceptible to damage from shrapnel and explosions. Direct hits to these modules are guaranteed to damage or disable them.
- Fuel cisterns are now able to better absorb splinters, while allowing the armour-piercing shells to penetrate them completely if the shell has enough power to pass through the cistern.
- On ships with coal-powered boilers (Class Isles, Class Flower, SGB (S304)) their coal pits will now better absorb kinetic damage. It will be more difficult for armour-piercing shells to pass through them completely, but it may give off a lot of secondary fragments.

- Critical damage
- The damage is now considered critical only when it directly affects flight characteristics, not when merely dealing damage to certain portions of an aircraft. This makes scoring damaging effects more adequate, since similar impairments work differently for different aircraft: some become uncontrollable, while others are still able to fly.
- One target may receive several critical hits from different players. Now every shooter is able to score his/her own critical hits each time.
- Critical damage still has its effect period, this period is now 90 seconds. During this period, each similar hit won’t count as an additional critical. When this period expires, you are able to re-inflict critical damage to the same target.
- Critical damage may also have delayed effect. For example, a disabled radiator could cause an engine to overheat and fail or may be followed by a fire destroying multiple parts of an aircraft. In this case, the scoring of critical damage occurs immediately after these damaging effects occur on the target aircraft. Such critical damage has no effect period and is considered active at all times.
- You’ll get an on-screen notification each time critical or serious damage is dealt.
- Critical damage notifications appear only when critical damage is dealt.
- Serious damage
- Serious damage is damage to certain parts and modules of an aircraft that does not directly affect its flight characteristics and controls, but is close to inflicting Critical damage.
- Serious damage is less than Critical, but may always lead up to Critical.
- Serious damage has an effect period and is active for 15 seconds in able to allow a player to score a kill, or 30/60/80 seconds (AB/RB/SB) to score a kill assist.
- Unlike Critical damage, Serious damage is removed from the target when the timer expires, although it can be ‘refreshed’ on a target by scoring more hits.
- Simple damage
- Simple damage is any damage that is not Critical or Serious.
- Active for 15 seconds, then it is removed from the target.
- Target destruction
- Target destruction is scored immediately when lethal damage is done to any target (i.e. pilot knock out, destruction of a main support inside the wing, tail cut, or a fuel explosion inside the aircraft)
- If a target crashes, the following scoring scenarios are implemented;
- When a targets damage affect period refreshes (after 90 seconds) Critical damage and target destruction score goes to the pilot who inflicted the heaviest supplemental damage, not the last one;
- Without new Critical damage occurring, the score goes to the last pilot which inflicted Serious or Simple damage in the last 15 seconds before the crash (as it was previously in the game);
- Without any additional Critical, Serious or Simple damage, but Critical Damage was inflicted previously. The score goes to the one who inflicted the heaviest Critical damage before the damage effect timer expired.
- Target destruction does not score if a target aircraft successfully lands on an airfield and is able to repair.
- Kill assist
- Kill assist scores occur when any pilot inflicts new Critical (less than 90 seconds) or Serious (30/60/80 for AB/RB/SB) damage before the targets destruction.
- Simple damage will not score a Kill Assist.
- Example 1
- You and your teammate are shooting together at an enemy aircraft, dealing several Critical hits. Your target crashes within 90 seconds. The “frag” score goes to the one who inflicted the heavier Critical damage. The same situation will occur if the timer expires, and none of the other players managed to deal any decent damage to the target.
- Example 2 (same rule as before)
- You have given critical damage to the enemy aircraft after which it was able to continue the battle and after 90 seconds, got hits from an ally and then immediately crashed. In this case destruction will be counted for your team mate because of your Critical Damage has lost priority.
- Example 3
- You have given critical damage to an enemy aircraft and it crashes after 90 seconds. In this case you will still get the kill counted for you if the hits of other players does not lead to the destruction of the aircraft.
- Squadron window design has been updated.
- Possibility of choosing favourite medals which will be shown in the squadron window has been added. The list of favourite medals can be changed by the squadron commander or his deputy in the medal window. The maximum number of selected medals is 6.
- A bug relating to ground battles, where there would be a delay when the colour of the armour-piercing reticle cross would change, has been fixed.
- A bug which would occur after flying the Wyvern S.4, where other single-engined aircraft would have no thrust or propeller rotation after spawning in them, has been fixed.
- Client crash caused when trying to watching any server replay if there is no authentication with the client at that time has been fixed.
- A bug where on aircraft with fixed landing gear in RB and SB there was a constant vibration on the controller has been fixed.
- A bug where in battles at BRs between 9.0 and 10 the limitation for the number of players with a BR of 10 for 25% (4 players max) of the maximum number of players in the team not working has been fixed.
- Changes in the “Squadrons” window
- The "Squadrons" tab has been renamed to "Squadrons Leaderboards".
- "Squadron activity" has been removed from the squadron battles leaderboards.
- A new "Squadrons search" tab, where brief information regarding each squadron will be displayed such as activity, the amount of members, ratings in squadron battles (AB/RB) and their motto, has been added. Additionally, extensive filters, which allow you to find squadrons you can instantly join, are now available for use.
- PG 02 - crew has been redistributed in the superstructure which makes the boat more vulnerable to guns and MGs.
- Battle ratings for aircraft, ground vehicles and the fleet have been changed (open table sheet).
- A bug where in some rare cases after colliding with the enemy, the player has been awarded "Help in destruction" has been fixed.
- A bug where in arbitre (spectator) mode the ground vehicle sight twitched strongly has been fixed.
- A bug in arbitre (spectator) mode where tracking an aircraft that crashed the camera began to twitch has been fixed.
- A bug, where destroying aircraft with turboprop engines would result in a brief frame-rate/performance drop, has been fixed.
Additional BR changes:
- Javelin F.(A.W.) Mk.9 - AB/RB: 9.0 → 8.7;
- M.D.452 IIA - AB/RB: 9.0 → 8.7;
- M.D.452 IIC - AB/RB: 9.0 → 8.7;

- A bug, where in naval battles shells with radio fuse were armed in the air near models of destroyed aircraft that are in the water or on the ground, has been fixed.
- A bug where the propeller on the nose of the Me 163B was blurred in the hanger has been fixed (source).
- A bug where control settings were not working when assigning to the mouse wheel button has been fixed.
- A bug where in some cases the turret of a tank began to bounce when moving the gun barrel inside an object on the map or another vehicle has been fixed.
- A bug where when using input range, the reticule shifted horizontally has been fixed.
- A bug with invisible islands and other assets in the location Vietnam has been fixed. Respawn points have been reworked to reduce the possibility of shooting directly into spawn points from distance.
- A bug where the incorrect maximum repair time for some ground and naval vehicles was displayed in the crew skills tab has been fixed.
- Server Update
- A bug where it wasn’t possible to purchase shells of additional calibres on some ships (USS Trenton, USS Raleigh, USS Brooklyn, Nurnberg) has been fixed.
