Putting new color on the ‘old’ planes

It is cool to be a great pilot. It is even better when you look good while flying.
With the upcoming release of the Wings of War-update we are introducing both a brand new paint jobs and new factory paint jobs for the three fighter planes, that have seen the most air time in Heroes & Generals.

  • The Soviet Yak-9
  • The German Messerschmitt BF 109E-4
  • And the US P-38 Lightning
The reason we are introducing new factory paint jobs is to standardise the basic design of factory paint jobs on all vehicles in the game.



An old paint job to set you apart
Introducing new factory paint jobs for the Yak-9, Messerschmitt BF 109E-4 and US P-38 Lightning also means that the existing paint jobs will be grandfathered.

If you as a pilots already own either of the three planes you will get to keep and use the old factory paint jobs – something that will set you apart as a veteran pilot.

However, if you purchase a Yak-9, Messerschmitt BF 109E-4 or US P-38 Lightning after the release of the Wings of War-update, it will feature only the new factory paint job.

If you own the old factory paint jobs but like the new factory paint jobs better, these are available for purchase.

All new paint jobs
In addition to the new factory paint jobs we are also introducing three all new paint jobs for the Yak-9, Messerschmitt BF 109E-4 and US P-38 Lightning.

These new paint jobs has hints of inspiration from the former factory paint jobs, and all three of them are of course based on authentic World War 2 paint jobs.

The new paint jobs will be available in the shop when the Wings of War-update releases.

Five Tips on long-range Infantry

An Infantry has a wide arsenal of weapons available, but which weapons are best used for longer ranges? Read more on Five Tips for Long-Range Infantry. 


1: Bolt-Action – slow but deadly
The Bolt-Action Rifles (K98K, M1903 & Mosin-Nagant) provide the most damage and the largest range. They do have a slow rate of fire but with the right modifications it is able to one-shot any infantry on the field who doesn’t wear the heavy set combat badge. 




2: Scope the distance
Having trouble seeing that well on long distances? The Semi-Automatic and Bolt-Action rifles allow a scope to be equipped. This will surely enhance your vision so you can engage your opponents more easily at longer distances.


3: Choose the right modifications
With the right modifications the Bolt-Action rifle can have a slightly higher rate of fire and do a lot more damage. For the Bolt-Action rifle it’s best to equip 5 modifications:
  • Ammunition: The bullets with the highest possible damage
  • Sights: Either the scope or the precision modification
  • Trigger: A trigger for a little extra rate of fire
  • Internal: The Heavy Bolt for a little extra damage
  • Barrel: The Scout II Barrel with damage
This will allow your bolt-action rifle to do a lot of damage and potentially one-shot your opponents when you hit them in the chest.


4: Be prepared for close range defense
The Bolt-Action rifle is great at long range, but not as powerful at close ranges due to the slow rate of fire. With the right pouch sizes set you can equip a SMG or other types of good close range weapons with it. So you can switch between the two weapons depending on the situation.


5: Consider a career as a recon
The Recon career is the career with the most abilities on long range. Having a recon soldier means you can have better scopes and stronger modifications for your Bolt-Action rifle.
