War Thunder's "Shark Attack" update released this week, adding new Soviet helicopters, the game's first Swedish aircraft, more tanks, and an all-new South African location. The update takes its name from one of the Soviet helicopters -- the "Black Shark". The other Soviet addition is the "Havoc". A third, Italian helicopter has been added as well.

In terms of aircraft, eleven new planes from across five countries have been added (although the Chinese aircraft is premium.) Of course, the aircraft of note -- as mentioned above -- are two new Swedish planes. These are the first ones added for the country's tech tree.

Ship and tank fans have new additions to check out as well. There are six new sea-fairing vessels, two each for the US, Germany, and Great Britain, and ten new tanks from across six countries. Of course, the update also includes all kinds of fixes and tweaks -- each of which can be read about in the patch notes.
