A complete and very realistic war game, so rich in a wide range of models of airplanes and incredibly detailed cockpits, as well as tanks and naval fleets accurate in every detail. In addition, War Thunder features stunning graphics, authentic sound effects and wonderful music.

The flight simulation offer different modes of view:

- Gunner: the view from the back turrets of the plane.
- Tracking the bomb: track the bomb or the torpedo to its target.

The damage system is very sophisticated, in War Thunder even a single well-placed shot can cause irreparable damage to your enemy. For example, you can point to the head of the opponents pilots inside their cabins, blow up gas tanks, destroy wings, fuselage and tail, damage mechanisms and critical components of the aircraft, bring structural damage to the plane to the point of compromising aerodynamics and cause a nasty fall.

Technically speaking you'll be faced with a flight simulator graphically amazing and undoubtedly pleasant, suitable for both veterans gamers and those who have not yet experienced the thrill of virtual aerial combact.
