    • PBY-5, PBY-5a are moved to the adjoining bomber line.
    • OS2U-1, OS2U-3, SBD-3, TBF-1 are separated to one line with new PBJ-1H and PBJ-1J
    • Changes in repair prices
    • Changes in Battle Rating

    • Battle statistic UI has been modified. Destroyed AI-controlled vehicles and aircraft are now displayed separately from the player controlled vehicles and aircraft.
    • Accelerated research has been separated for aviation and ground forces.
    • Added variants of “To Battle” button for aviation and ground forces.
    • Tank battles: destroyed modules are now displayed with grey colour, all other colours show the damage stage of the modules: the closer to red, the more severe the damage is. Modules shown in grey also when you hit already destroyed modules.
    • Ground forces decals are now separated to another group. Added new special decals for ground vehicles.
    Graphics and Models

    • Shadows on all setup settings has been greatly improved and optimised.
    • Grass and plants has been updated in tank maps.
    • Improved visual effects from hits on ground or ground targets for large-caliber aircraft cannons.
    • Fixed visual effects from fragmentation and HEAT shell hits on ground targets.
    • Fixed rare occurrence of additional tail and wing debris being shown
    • New cockpits added:
    Ki-45 ko

    Ki-45 tei

    Ki-45 otsu

    Ki-45 hei

    Damage Model Changes

    • Damage Model of AA units has been significantly changed to reflect real AA units.
    • Changed ricochet chance for all types of shells at different impact angles. Chance to ricochet at extreme angles has been increased for all armour piercing shells, HEAT shell ricochet chance has been significantly reduced.
    • Fixed repair algorithm for the gun breech and the gun barrel. Now these modules will be fully restored after the repair.
    • Improved damage model of the tanks with add-on armour elements (add on plates, shields, additional tracks etc), now these objects will have the correct material and qualities. They are correctly included in the damage calculation after being hit.
    • Fixed damage model of all anti air defence and artillery under AI control. Now their hitboxes more accurately represent the sizes of the weapon and the unit, fortification elements (bund walls, sand bags) will now protect the weapon from shell damage.
    • Fixed 100mm shells: BR-412 and BR-412B forT-54 tank and SU-100 SPG.

    • Overestimated fuel consumption rate has been fixed for F9F, MiG-9, F-80, F-84
    • FM for Bf. 109 G-2 and G-6 - a bug that lead to reduced turning time - fixed. Turn time is now according to data sheets
    • Indicated airspeed for P-40E fixed. Fuel consumption rate, roll rate, control stiffening corrected, thermodynamics reworked.
    • Indicated airspeed for PBY Catalina fixed
    • Wing aerodynamic centre for Yak-3 fixed
    • FM changed for DH Vampire, He 162, Me 163 and Ki-200 (engines, control stiffening)
    • A bug when non-retractable landing gear didn’t cause air resistance fixed
    • Do-217E has been tuned according to data sheets.

    • Added variant of the ammo belts for BK-5 and MK-214A 5cm(50mm) avia-cannons with Armor-piercing high-explosive shells.
    • MK.214a - 50mm cannon for Me.262C-2b has been added and tuned.

    Don't forget to do the tank tutorial. It's worth a cool 100 GE and 10,000 Lions.

    I have to check out the changes that they have made to P40, G2 and G6. I also bought the premium P40 so I hope that they didn't fuck it up.

    Thanks for the post Beachy! I don't know if it was mentioned and I missed it but now you don't get the kill until the plane hits the ground or explodes. Taking a wing or tail off results in a delay before being awarded the kill.
