Cross-platform matchmaking is now a reality in War Thunder across PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

This feature comes as part of the Starfighters content update. Also part of this update is the previously announced Italian Navy Tech Tree which includes 20+ torpedo boats, destroyers and cruisers. Also included are the F-104 Starfighter and the Mirage IIIC fighter jets.

The F-104 development started during the Korean war, the jet saw action in Vietnam as part of the US Air Force and was bought by the militaries of thirteen other countries. Additionally, the French Mirage IIIC is another signature fighter jet of the same era and also the first European aircraft that managed to exceed speeds of Mach 2 in level flight.

The update also features the first ground vehicle in War Thunder with a sophisticated radar detecting ground targets, which is 9P157 Khrizantema – the Soviet tank destroyer on a BMP-3 chassis. Having both radar and thermal sights allows Khrizantema to easily spot enemies and launch two anti-tank missiles at two different targets at the same time.

Other interesting new vehicles mentioned in the press release are the modern Japanese Type 93 light SAM system mounted on an SUV-style chassis and a Bangladeshi Type 69-IIG main battle tank – basically a Chinese Type 69 modification with extra reactive armor and longer gun barrel.
