Fans of intense aerial combat might enjoy the new British multirole Hawker line as the key features of these aircraft are their high speed and powerful weapons. New boosters, in turn, allow players to get increased rewards for their efforts — earn even more credits and experience to make the most of every battle! Attack aircraft pilots might like the new opportunity to manually reload outboard weapons. This feature will guarantee that you will be fully armed when flying to any target.

After defeat in World War I and the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was forbidden to build military aircraft. But the growing ambition of the Reich dictated the necessity of a new fleet of warplanes, so its gradual increase in aerial might was kept secret. Bombers of the 1930s were an example of this tactic, for example, the Junkers Ju 86 and Heinkel 111.
Junkers Ju 86E
The Junkers Ju 86 was created in 1934 as a dual-purpose aircraft. Officially it was a commercial airliner for Lufthansa and foreign clients that could transport 10 passengers. But the main advantage of this machine was its ability to be easily and quickly transformed into a medium bomber.

World of Warplanes Update 2.0.7
An entirely new game mode appears in Update 2.0.7 — Bomber Escort Mode! Players from one team will escort strategic bomber waves through enemy territory, while the other team will try to intercept and destroy them. Firepower and close coordination are especially important in this game mode as solo players cannot cope with the entire formation of steel giants.
Heavy October clouds are torn apart by the powerful roar of an armada of bombers, which are the main characters of the new “Flaming Shores” event. The warring parties will clash again in a protracted battle that will last for 4 weeks. Each week, the battle will take place in a different game mode and have a particular global goal for all participants of the event. Pilots will be awarded with valuable prizes for their courage and persistence. As usual, the main prizes will be new rare airplanes: two German bombers and one attack aircraft, a rapid British fighter de Havilland Vampire F.1, as well as Dornier Do 335 A-1 and Gloster Meteor that are already familiar to many players. These aircraft will be available once accomplishing Operation Orders that players can find in Special Supplies gained in battles.
One of the major changes in Update 2.0.7 is the increased functionality of all paint schemes, nose arts and emblems which now provide various economic and gameplay advantages. Moreover, the update includes balance adjustments for the Conquest Mode, some sectors, bots, and AA guns, in addition to improvements for the matchmaking system that should shorten the Queue Time and make teams more equal in battles. And finally, the new “Cold Peak” map. Continue reading
Greetings everyone, it has been brought to my attention that apparently, World of Warplanes has been added to steam on the 12th of September. So for those who don’t like the WGC or just can’t be bothered to download it can play it through steam. You can switch between the different servers using the Steam client. Also keep in mind that, just like WoWs, you cannot use your WG account on the Steam version. And if you haven’t tried it, i recommend you give it a shot and rate it, what this game needs the most is more players.

A new aircraft line appears in the World of Warplanes tech tree – USSR bombers, including the famous “Peshka” Petlyakov Pe-2. These high-speed machines with a powerful bomb load are very mobile and effective over a wide range of altitudes, destroying ground targets from an unachievable height or launching rapid offensives in a strafing dive. Powerful engines and good defensive weapons allow it to effectively resist fighters, and the Pe-2’s good manoeuvrability and forward-firing weapon makes attacking enemy aircraft a possibility.
