As many of you likely already know, War Thunder does a Q&A with their developers every few weeks, which is then compiled and posted on their site. Previously, these Q&A's were not covered on our site, but that will change -- starting today! Here is today's round of questions and answers, with War Thunder producer Vyacheslav Bulannikov!
Q. Will the range finder (laser) work on air targets, OR at least on helicopters?
Q. Are there any plans for vehicles like “Object 781”, “Object 782”, “Object 787”?
Q. Are there any plans to abandon artillery strike warning in RB mode? This would enhance the realistic atmosphere of the game mode.
Q. Is it possible to add a module repair indicator with a separate timer? For example, full repair time is 60 seconds, but there could also be one additional indicator where you can see the engine will be repaired in 10 seconds, in 20 seconds the barrel, etc. If not as a separate tool, then can there at least be some place where it will be possible to see these repair indicators?
Q. Do you plan to recalculate the power of all tanks, depending on the type of transmission, additional modules, etc, which take away some of the power from the engine? For example, Leopard 2 uses a hydrodynamic transmission, which diminishes horsepower by up to 250-300 (this does not take into account the generator, hydraulics and other units) and with the T-64 these losses don’t exceed 50-60 hp, as such, these tanks in some conditions must have almost equal power density on the drive wheel.
Q. Is it possible to replace the default tank sight of all tanks with one action, with an immediate effect, rather than changing sights for each separate tank? Doing it for each tank individually could take a really long time.
Q. The helicopters have shown their high effectiveness against ground vehicles. Are there any plans in the nearest feature to effectively counter them?
Q. We will have Italian ground vehicles in update 1.85. Is it also possible to see the premium self-propelled gun “Elephant”? The 653rd battalion was fighting in Italy and this vehicle would fit perfectly into the tree.
Q. Are self-guided torpedoes implemented now? If not, how will it look in the future?
Q. Will there be various decorations associated with fleets: avatars, titles, numbers/decals?
Q. Is it planned to have, in naval battles, a game mode like “Enduring Confrontation” for aircraft, with big locations, long game sessions and random tasks for different ship classes and aircraft?
Q. Can you please make the BR of players visible before battle when playing in a squad?
Q. Are there any plans for the near future to focus more attention on VR mode? There are some shortcomings that players on the .com forum constantly remind others of: for example, the lack of a mouse cursor in the map view of a battle.
Q. Will there be more detailed information in articles on the official War Thunder Wiki page dedicated to the common, basic game mechanics, like rewards from battles, etc? Previously, there were specific formulas and numbers, and now, it is short and in general terms. This is why many players constantly have questions.
