[Development] Me 163B-0, Model Update



Update 1.81 “The Valkyries” brings with it a small treat for all German pilots and fans of the deadly Komet in particular. With the release of War Thunder’s next major update, we’re happy to introduce a new version of the Me 163B along with an improved model for the existing modification!

In War Thunder update 1.81 “The Valkyries”, we plan to introduce a new modification of the fan-favorite Me 163B Komet rocket-propelled fighter. The new Me 163B-0 represents the pre-production model of the aircraft, which consisted of a few dozen units before the regular B-1 modification entered serial production in 1944.

The B-0 is neigh identical to its production counterpart in terms of design, layout and performance. The most notable difference between the two versions is their primary armament options. Namely, the Me 163B-0/R1 is armed with four 20mm MG151/20 cannons as opposed to two 30mm MK108 cannons.





The Me 163B-0 will soon become available to all War Thunder players as a researchable vehicle of rank V of the German aviation tree as part of upcoming update 1.81 “The Valkyries”. Until then pilots!
