Direct Hit is the next update for the military online action War Thunder and will release in the first half of September. Here are the details.
Direct Hit aims to bring plenty of new naval, ground and air military vehicles, including Soviet fighter-bomber MiG-27M, Japanese light cruiser Yubari, Swedish infantry fighting vehicle Pansarbandvagn 301, Chinese-built Pakistani attack jet Nanchang A-5C, modern Chinese MBT ZTZ99-III and Russian airborne self-propelled tank destroyer 2S25 “Sprut-SD”.
Additionally, look forward to naval fire-control systems and guided bombs, as well as improved flow separation effects and infrared countermeasures visualization. The accompanying press release provides additional detail on the new vehicles coming to War Thunder. For example, regarding the Japanese light cruiser Yubari,
“Yubari is a landmark ship for the Japanese navy, it was she who laid down distinctive technical features for Japanese cruisers: armor as part of the hull powertrain, twin funnels and an S-shaped stem. Despite the very low displacement, comparable to some destroyers, Yubari has all the attributes of a light cruiser, like a 38 mm armor belt and an armored deck, good speed and a crew of 368 sailors.”
Right now, we don’t have a concrete release date for War Thunder’s upcoming update. Just keep your eyes peeled as we receive more details. Earlier this month, War Thunder kicked off their Summer Landing Eventafter bringing MiG fighters into the game.
