Friends,

If some of you guys play War Thunder on a regular basis just like me then please add me: PeterBlom  Smile 

War Thunder is a beautiful WW2 and early jet era sim with great online action and visuals! Everyone can download it and it comes with no costs  :drink: 

Some self made ingame action shots of today:

My Sabre F86

It's looking good  Smile If one day I find time I might try it, I flew a little bit with IL2 sturmovik a few years ago.

Can you please edit your post with smaller screenshots please?  Wink

Nope, just play 'arcade battles' like me and make sure only to use mouse & keyboard. Do not try to use a Joystick in 'arcade' because a mouse is more accurate while aiming.

Also...make sure you know the assigned buttons for 'looking behind' because there alway be an enemy on your tail  :D

pour avoir fait une pose de simracing en 2010 et voler en escadrille sur IL2, je comfirme que l'apprentissage est dur et longs
beaucoup plus que pour la voiture, tout du moins pour moi.  :D 
je ne connais pas bien War thunder mai je pense que c'est très arcades.
IL2 sort un nouvel opus qui me semble très bien
http://il2sturmovik.com/   Very Happy

IL-2 is more hardcore and will cost you money to buy.

War Thunder has 3 modes: Arcade, Historical and Realistic flightmodels. Soon War Thunder 'Tanks' will come available and all for free. Probably in a year from now War Thunder 'Fleets' will see daylight.

I played in the early alpha then beta strictly in realistic mode. Was very fun. Once I got the other guy to bleed off his speed things usually end with a nice sweep across the tail and much smoke then dirt napping.

Was a pain in the ass to get the Mustang A unlocked but once I did life got real good.

Your screenshots indicate things have gotten even better!

Untill now i mainly played tier 2, i think it is the most fun.

I own everybody, i mean everybody, almost always Nr 1 and "terror of the sky", "punisher" blabla....

Tier 2 i swear, Russian La-5 is boss, or the English Spitfires (but they have an ammo problem, La-5 has 340 rounds baby)

Upgrade your machine guns and cannons with new ones, better accuracy, put guns at 500m crossing over, believe me, no one does it at tier 2, they wont stand a change, oh and keep this a secret pls.  :banane:  :banane: 
Going to 3 and 4 to get those damned jets researched
