War Thunder has received Apache helicopters in its latest Viking Fury update.
As the press release notes, while the main theme of the Update is the testing of the Swedish ground forces tree, there are other cool toys to play with. The most important ones are the heavy cruiser HMS London, the J35 Draken jet fighter and several variants of the AH-64 Apache, the main attack helicopter of the US Army and one of the most famous military vehicles of our time.
You will be able to try four variants of the Apache: the basic AH-64A, the upgraded AH-64D Apache Longbow, the British AH Mk.1 version and the Israeli Peten. The Update will also bring a Russian alternative to the Apache - the latest Ka-52 attack helicopter.
Swedish ground forces include both WW2 era vehicles and more recent ones, like the Pvrbv 551 - a tank destroyer equipped with TOW guided missiles, or VEAK 40 – a self-propelled anti-air gun with a sophisticated radar. The list of modern tanks from other nations has been extended with the ZTZ96A (the most common Chinese MBT nowadays), the ?-72B (a ?-72 variant from the 80’s with upgraded armor) and the Radkampfwagen 90 (experimental German wheeled tank).
