War Thunder's next update is soon to be rolling down the runway, and it's bring with it a whole new nation to either blow away, or learn to fly.
Update 1.73 features over 30 new aircraft, ranging from pre-WW2 fliers up to modern jet fighters. You'll find aircraft that fought in the Spanish Civil War, and more modern, multi-purpose fighter craft that can take on other fighters or take on ground targets.
“Some of the French planes included in Update 1.73 never entered mass production because of the demands of World War II, so information on them was difficult to source. We spent more than a year in development, searching for various references and painstakingly recreating these rare planes to make War Thunder’s French aviation. We are sure that the pilots of War Thunder will look forward to finally testing these machines in battle,” said Kirill Yudintsev, Creative Director of Gaijin Entertainment, in today's release.
