[Development] KMS Köln - The Teutonic Ironclad



KMS Köln is the last K-class light cruiser, built for the German Navy in the interwar period. In update 1.85, War Thunder captains and fans of German warships may look forward to commanding this new addition to the German light cruiser roster coming to the game very soon!

In War Thunder, the KMS Köln will soon become available to all seasoned captains, with the release of the upcoming update 1.85, as a new light cruiser of rank IV of the German naval tree. Faster and better armed than KMS Emden that precedes it, KMS Köln won’t just offer improved performance over the Emden overall, but it will also give German captains new tactical possibilities on the naval battlefield. KMS Köln is armed with a total of nine 150mm cannons, spread across three triple turrets. Not only does this make the primary armament on the Köln more numerous than that of the Emden, but it also allows captains of this warship to bring all guns to bear on a single target from one side.





KMS Köln has set course for War Thunder naval battles and will arrive in player ports with the release of the upcoming 1.85 update. In the meantime, stay tuned to the news for more information on the next major update coming to the game very soon. Until then, calm seas captains!

[Development] New Location: Vietnam Hills



Briefly: A new location for ground battles, inspired by the Vietnamese town of Hội An and its surroundings.

In update 1.85, we’re pleased to present a new location for combined arms battles, set in the breathtaking landscape of Vietnam. Specifically, battles will take place on a 4x4km ground location, inspired by the town of Hội An and its imminent surroundings.

Players will fight in and over three distinct parts of the map. The northern section of the map is defined by rocky mountains, separated by deep gorges, through which long and winding roads lead to the occasional open mountain plateau. Combat here will be fierce as vehicles will often clash head on, making this the perfect fighting ground for heavily armored brawlers.

The new Vietnam Hills map will become available in War Thunder combined battles very soon with the release of the upcoming update 1.85. Lock ‘n’ load, commanders!
