Welcome To The Danger Zone, F2P War Thunder's Newest Update
“I feel the need, the need for speed.”
The latest update for Gaijin Entertainment’s War Thunder is live now. With a name like Danger Zone, and with the addition of the US f-14 Tomcat fighter, it almost feels like a call out to the popular 80’s movie Top Gun, or even the newer Top Gun: Maverick. Still, the Tomcat fighter isn't the only new addition in the Danger Zone update, players can also appreciate Israeli and Chinese helicopters, the latest Chinese tank, an improvised Italian self-propelled gun, the most advanced German battleship of World War 1, and plenty of other new hardware.
The newest weapon type added to the game are Aviation containers with napalm. It's an incendiary mixture that burns strongly and for a long time. It will stick to surfaces, even surfaces that are wet. Although napalm is primarily associated with the Vietnam War, it was first used as early as 1944 during the liberation of France.
As mentioned previously, this update will incorporate the latest Chinese tank being the ZTZ99A, which is a further development of the ZTZ99 MBT, but may be difficult to recognize due to the almost complete overhaul of the design. The ZTZ99A is better protected and more mobile than its predecessor. In addition, the Israeli Hughes MD500 TOW light attack helicopter has also been added to the game.
While the German battleship SMS Bayern took part in its last major operations during WW1, it is one of the most powerful ships in the War Thunder blue-water fleet. Then, to finish it all off, fans of exotic vehicles should pay attention to the 100/17 su Lancia 3Ro, a Škoda 10cm Vz.1914 howitzer mounted in the field on an army truck chassis to increase mobility. This improvised Italian SPG was brought to the game by War Thunder players Nicola “Kolin0” Faggiani and Riccardo “BlueBeta” Lo Verso under Revenue Sharing Program, and now their work is officially a part of War Thunder.
With improved graphics and new vehicles, now is the time to get into all the F2P military action.
