[Development] Krasny Krym: All Weapons Fire at Will!



Krasny Krym is the lead ship of the Svetlana-class light cruisers which was laid down for the Imperial Russian Navy just prior to the outbreak of WW1. Despite closely resembling the Krasny Kavkaz, Krasny Krym will offer its future captains some new tactical options with its introduction in the forthcoming War Thunder update 1.85!

Krasny Krym was initially laid down in 1913 under the name ‘Svetlana’, and was the lead ship of her class of four. Svetlana-class light cruisers were intended for the Baltic Fleet of the Imperial Russian Navy and were therefore designed slightly differently in comparison to the closely-related, intended for Black Sea operations, Admiral Nakhimov-class (of which the already familiar Krasny Kavkaz was a part of).





Krasny Krym is already well on its way to player ports and is expected to arrive with the release of the upcoming War Thunder update 1.85. Stay tuned to the news to find out what else update 1.85 has in store. Until then, may the seas be calm to you, fellow captains!

[Development] F-100D Super Sabre: The New Era



The American F-100D Super Sabre supersonic turbo-jet fighter was developed as a fighter-bomber, so in addition to breathtaking speeds, it also features a rich assortment of suspended weaponry. It’s arguably the best American aircraft in the game!

In War Thunder, the F-100D Super Sabre will be the first supersonic fighter of rank VI in the American air force research tree. Its very high speed when flying horizontally, and excellent rate of climb, by no means suggest that the F100D can only fly straight, however, its enhanced controls and increased fin area make this aircraft quite obedient and pleasant to fly. The fantastic flying ability of this new top aircraft is supported by excellent weaponry. Four high-speed 20mm M-39A1s with 200 rounds per gun are installed in the Super Saber’s nose section. This is an upgraded version of the FMC T-160, a gun that should be familiar to War Thunder pilots from the F-86F-2 fighter. Its excellent accuracy, low recoil, and extremely high rate of fire make this the best aircraft gun in its class; just keep an eye on your remaining ammo.




The F-100D Saber will be available to all War Thunder players at rank VI in the American aircraft research tree as soon as our huge 1.85 “Supersonic” update launches. Welcome to the supersonic era!
