Changes to Aircraft visibility:
Seasonal camouflage will now reduce the spotting distance by 200 meters instead of 20% concealment. Radar equipment will now reduce spotting distance by a maximum of 500 meters, depending on upgrade status.
Spotting ranges are now 1650 meters for tier 1 to 4, 2000 meters for tier 5 to 7 and 2500 meters for tier 8 to 10.
Visible area on the Radar now covers 4500 / 3000 / 1500 meters for Tiers 1-4, 6000 / 4000 / 2000m for Tiers 5-7 and 7500 / 5000 / 2500m for Tiers 8-10. A circle visible on the radar when Alt is pressed represents average distance of enemy detection for the aircraft Tier. If an enemy is inside that circle it most probably can see the player’s aircraft as well.
- Stalls are now easier to recover from
Temporary crossing between bomber and attack aircraft branches between Pe-2 M-82 and Il-8 is no longer available.
- Fw 190 A-1 can now be researched from He 112 and Bf 109 E.
- Ta 152 can now be researched from Fw 190 D and Bf 109 G.
- F6U can now be researched from P-51H and provides an cannon-based alternative to American fighters mostly armed with machineguns. It will also serve as a link for crossing over to the heavy fighter branch towards the F2H.
Balance changes for some aircraft
