Overview / New Content

  • New branch of American heavy fighters
  • Now the game automatically detects recommended graphics settings when the client is launched for the first time, and also detects changes in computer configurations and can suggest settings

Consumables

  • "First Aid Kit" gives a short period (5 sec.) of invulnerability to the crew after using it
  • Power boost for "100-octane Gasoline", "120-octane Gasoline" and "Purified Kerosene" was reduced. The cost of consumables already purchased will be compensated to players
