War Thunder Presents - Update 1.79 “Project-X”

We have named our update “Project-X” not only because of the upcoming release on the Xbox One. Among the interesting features of this update, there are many “X” related items: XM-1 (GM) and XM-1 (Chrysler), XM803, AMX-40 and Fritz-X guided bomb. In addition we have added new locations and missions, hugely reworked sounds for aircraft and added many other changes  that made the game even better.

New vehicles

13 new ground vehicles and 17 new or updated aircraft.

 

 

 

Protection analysis

This function will allow you to check selected armoured vehicles directly from the hangar. Choose a vehicle from which you want to attack, check the range and one of the available shells and explore the weak spots of your opponent!

New missions and locations

 

 

 

Italy — New location for combined battles.

 

Ladoga - new location for air battles and two missions for the location: “Frontline” and “Air Supremacy”.

Reworked air battles sound

  • New sounds for aircraft machine guns and cannons have been added.
  • The dependence of the sound characteristic being created for the firing sound based on the angle of viewing on the aircraft gun has been added. Implemented for 3rd person view on player's aircraft on both allied and enemy aircraft.
  • The dependence of the sound characteristic being created for the firing sound based on the angle of viewing on ground-based weapons has been added. Implemented for 3rd person view on player's vehicle on both allied and enemy vehicles.
  • The dependence of the sound characteristic of the engine operation and the mechanical operation of the tracks/wheels on the angle of view on ground vehicles has been added. Implemented for 3rd person view on player's vehicle on both allied and enemy vehicles.
  • For a player's aircraft, the mechanical sounds of the gun have been added at a specific viewing angle when seen from third person.
  • For a player's aircraft, as seen from the third person, during shooting, with the camera position opposite the gun barrel, the sounds of the bullets have been added.
  • Added sounds of dropping cases, for aircraft standing on the ground or slowly moving on the surface.
  • When shooting at the surface of the earth at low speed, or at rest, now there are reverberating tails.
  • The dependence of the sound character of shots for Allied / enemy aircraft has been added, depending on the distance of hits.
  • The cockpit canopy now strongly filters out external sounds, greatly reducing their intensity.
  • The sound of shots within sight of the cockpit now consist of two main components. These are shots outside the aircraft, filtered by the cockpit's canopy, and the jolts / blows of the machine gun / gun mechanisms located in the structure of the aircraft.
  • If the breech mechanism exists in the cockpit, the mechanical operation of the gun will be audible during the shot.
  • In turrets on aircraft, from the first person view, the mechanical sounds of of the gun and turret will now be heard.
  • The mechanical sounds have changed when shooting from machine guns in ground vehicles, when seen from the first person.
  • Changed the nature of the reverberation in the cockpit more realistically, with the cockpit canopy closed.
  • When you open the cockpit canopy, the cockpit reverb smoothly goes into the reverberation of the open space.
  • If there is an open turret on the aircraft, and a view from the first person is available, the reverb and the sound environment will be the same for an open cockpit.
  • The sound of the mechanics of the aircraft turret has been added as it rotates, when viewed from the first person.
  • With overloads, the character of the sound of the engine of the aircraft changes slightly, when observed from the cockpit.
  • After launching a rocket, when switching to the camera following the rocket, you can now hear the sound of the rocket engine, depending on the viewing angle.
  • The sound of impact on the aircraft frame when landing on any hard surface has been added.
  • The sound of the aircraft rolling on a hard surfaces has been added in 3rd person view and cockpit.
  • The sound of pneumatic brakes on the frame undercarriage from within the cockpit of aircraft has been added.
  • Sound corrections for ground vehicle cannons equipped with muzzle brakes have been made.

 

 

New locations and missions

  • Italy - new location for combined battles.  
  • Ladoga - new location for air battles. Two missions: “Frontline” and “Air Supremacy”.
  • [Domination] Wallonia - new mission for the “Ardennes” location.  

 

Location and mission updates

  • Ground vehicles Location “Karelia” and partially on  “Ireland” — Vegetation have been changed:

 

  • Ground vehicles Location “Kursk” — Gardens in the village have been added.
  • Hürtgen ground battles location - balancing and visual changes.
  • Ardennes ground battles location - small town added to the central part of the location, number of bushes and smaller trees has been reduced.  
  • Zhengzhou air battles location - many corrections for roads and bridges.  

 

 

Naval locations and missions

  • African gulf - Naval location for combined battles.
  • Arabian Gulf - Naval location for combined battles.
  • Fiji - Naval location for combined battles.
  • Northern Port - Naval location for combined battles.
  • Irish bay - Naval location for combined battles.
  • Mediterranean Port - Naval location for combined battles.
  • North sea - Naval location for combined battles.
  • Norway - Naval location for combined battles.
  • Andaman Sea - Naval location for combined battles.

 

 

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

  • For ground vehicles with blowout ammunition panels, new fire mechanics have been introduced. Fires in compartments with blowout panels can not be put out with FPE if the ammo is on fire, and will instead go out after the propellant charges burn out (15-30 secs). However, fires may start in other parts of the vehicle. If the armoured protection of the ammo load is struck, it won't be able to protect the crew from the fire and the vehicle will subsequently be lost.
  • the order of ammunition use has been specified for the following vehicles:
    • Nb.Fz
    • M16 MGMC
    • M15A1 CGMC

  • The conditions for gaining the battle award “According to Intelligence” have been changed - award will be given for the destruction of enemy vehicles based on the allied scouting results.
  • New battle award “Help with Repairing” has been added - the award will be given for helping an ally with repairing of their vehicle not more than 3 times in one battle.
  • New battle tasks have been added:
  • “One Step Ahead” - receive the required number of times the battle award “According to Intelligence”.
  • “Scout” - receive the required number of times the battle award “Scouting”.
  • “Set to Work” - receive the required number of times the battle award “Help with Repairing”.
  • Changes in the PvE-missions “Assault”:
  • Daily award for aircraft and ground vehicle assault is not related and you can get them both within one day.
  • Universal backup vehicle for appropriate type of the vehicles (aircraft/ground vehicle) has been added to the award for victory.
  • Number of enemies in the attacker waves depends on the number of players remaining in the session.
  • The minimum number of players needed to start the event has been reduced.

  • After successful completion of enemy waves, several selectable bonuses which will restore all modules, crew and ammunition and will give additional use of the FPE and crew replenishment will spawn around the base. On the 1st and 2nd difficulty level there are no more than two bonuses after each wave, on the 3rd no more than 3 and so on. At the same time  there can be no more than 10 bonuses in the location.
  • The algorithm for the loss of the player's team points when the enemy is inside the defended sector and algorithm for calculating bonuses based on the result of each wave have been changed. Now these parameters will change not intermittently once per wave but by arithmetic progression.

Known Issues:

  • Errors may occur with the general protection rating in the Protection Analysis function. In the event that the overall protection dimension shows greater values (more than 1000mm equivalent) this refers to primary modules (engine, cannon etc) where the tank crew and other lesser modules are not damaged.
  • T-62M-1 may display texture issues and glitches.
