[Development] Type 89: The Fire Dragon



The Type 89 is a Japanese infantry fighting vehicle, developed during the 1980s by the Mitsubishi company and used by the JSDF in limited numbers. Japanese tankers in War Thunder can look forward to the addition of the nimble Type 89 to the game with the upcoming update 1.85 "Supersonic"!

In War Thunder, the Type 89 will be a new addition coming to the top rank of the Japanese ground forces tree with update 1.85. As a highly nimble, low-profile vehicle armed with a deadly quick-firing autocannon and ATGMs, the Type 89 will perfectly fit into the fast-paced combat of high tier battles.

Being an infantry fighting vehicle, it should come as no surprise to tankers that the Type 89 has superb mobility. Due to its low weight of just 26.5 tons and a powerful 600 horsepower Mitsubishi diesel engine, the Type 89 can reach an excellent top speed of 70 km/h on roads as well as 42 km/h in reverse, allowing it to quickly escape a precarious situation, if necessary.





The Type 89 will become available to all players with the release of update 1.85 "Supersonic", as part of the top rank of the Japanese ground forces tree. While you’re waiting for the wonderful Type 89, stay tuned to the news to find out what else update 1.85 will bring with it. Until then, happy hunting tankers!

[Development] MiG-19PT: Target Locked



This upgraded version of the world’s first mass-produced supersonic aircraft will become the new top model in the USSR’s military aircraft branch. Meet the magnificent MiG-19PT with air-to-air missiles!

In War Thunder the MiG-19PT will be the first rank VI supersonic plane in the Soviet/Russian tech tree and the first Soviet aircraft equipped with air-to-air missiles. Unlike its overseas competitor the F-100D Super Sabre, the MiG-19PT cannot carry bombs or unguided rockets, but its two turbojet engines give the MiG the advantage in terms of rate of climb and acceleration. Both of these engines require an incredible amount of fuel, which limits their flight time to 5-6 minutes in WEP. The smartest thing for a MiG-19PT pilot to do is to climb to a high altitude at the beginning of a battle and then switch the engine to a more fuel-efficient mode.





The MiG-19PT is a splendid supersonic interceptor with air-to-air missiles and the best rate of climb in the game. The VI aircraft rank is waiting for you in the update 1.85 in War Thunder. Get ready, everyone!
