Update 1.91 “Night Vision” / War Thunder

Update 1.91 “Night Vision” / War Thunder


Hello, friends!
We’re proud to announce the arrival of Update 1.91 “Night vision”.
It brings night vision devices and thermal sights.
even more dangerous rotorcraft, and Chinese tanks and aircraft!
Yup, that’s right: China is the latest nation to be added to War Thunder.
There are tons of exciting new vehicles and many, many bug fixes as well…
Let’s dive in!
Ground vehicles and helicopters will get image intensifying night vision devices and thermal sights
Obviously, only when it’s historically applicable.
Image intensifiers operate by amplifying reflected or radiated light.
Sometimes they come with an infrared headlamp, allowing you to illuminate an area to see your target clearly…
while still remaining in the shadows.
Night vision devices with a thermal imaging type of action detect thermal radiation emitted by an operating vehicle.
Those can be useful even in broad daylight.
If an enemy tank moves or fires, its gun, engine area and tracks can then be easily spotted with your thermal sights!
Furthermore, if you’re fond of fighting at night time, you’re in for a real treat:
at high BRs the number of night battles will increase, allowing for a more varied gameplay!
Now a few words about new vehicles.
Say hi to the legendary MiG-21
one of the most well-known supersonic jet aircraft in the world!
If somebody says “MiG”, just “MiG”… that’s probably the aircraft you’re going to think of
with its distinct elliptical profile and a delta wing.
This aircraft can reach the speed of up to 1300 kph near the ground.
It is armed with a powerful 30mm autocannon, and has access to a multitude of payload options.
Meanwhile on the other side of the pond
there is a strong new contender: the McDonnell Douglas F-4, also known as Phantom II.
Its twin-engine configuration allows it to compete with Soviet MiGs
and it has enough payload options to put a proper strike aircraft to shame.
These means of destruction are at your disposal.
Just look at all this splendour!…
EC-665 Tiger HAD Another interesting newcomer is the Eurocopter Tiger
which came to being through a joint Franco-German development project.
It’s a modern attack helicopter that has access to a wide variety of air-to-surface and air-to-air missiles.
It is outfitted with bleeding-edge avionics and armed with a quick-firing 30mm cannon.
Furthermore, with its excellent maneuverability and a very lean profile
it’s not an easy target to take down.
If you prefer Ground Battles, there is an exciting new option for taking those pesky fliers down a peg or two.
Meet the SIDAM 25 Mistral, a new Italian SPAA system.
In addition to four 25mm Oerlikons, it is also equipped with Mistral missiles.
An excellent “fire-and-forget” type weapon.
Its passive infrared homing head allows you to destroy targets at a distance of up to five km.
There are also really big ships!
Admiral Hipper, the first German heavy cruiser in the game, sets sail from its dock.
As of now, this will be the biggest vessel of War Thunder.
It displaces more than 18 thousand tonnes, and is more than 200 metres long.
This behemoth features eight 203mm cannons as its main caliber
almost thirty additional AA cannons and machine guns, and twelve torpedoes to boot!
Other countries will get new, bigger ships as well.
There is also a new nation coming to War Thunder.
You’ve been trying to determine the game’s next nation for at least a few months now.
Leave a like if you were right: it’s China that is bringing its armies to War Thunder!
You will see different variants of the legendary Type-59
and the tree will feature a 50 ton CM11 tank hybrid as a top Chinese MBT.
This tank is built around the chassis of the M60A3, armed with a stabilized 105mm cannon
and equipped with ERA packages allowing it to thrive in high level battles.
And it’s not just ground vehicles that we’re talking about.
China also has a full-fledged aircraft tech tree
with the multirole Chengdu J-7 fighter, which is a license-built version of the Soviet MiG-21,
coming into the game as the tree’s top predator.
It’s nice to be able to play with new vehicles on new locations,
so with Update 1.91 we introduce three new maps at once.
For starters, we give you an extremely big Ground Battles location called Cargo Port.
Visualize two “Alaskas”. Well, that’s about the right size!
You might think that a map that big would be mostly barren… but you’d be wrong.
Countless port facilities create a very diverse landscape, enabling all sorts of playstyles.
Next up is Palau Islands, a location for Naval Battles with a small archipelago right in the center.
This map has it all: big vessels have all the room they need for long range duels
all the while more agile torpedo boats and destroyers get a labyrinth of islands to play in.
Finally there is Japanese Port, yet another naval location.
Tactically speaking, it’s almost symmetrical, with smaller vessels fighting for the northern cap point in the bay
the center zone surrounded by islands, and the third zone, which is the furthest from the shore
forcing you to fight in the open.
Even with all that sea action, we’re pretty sure that it’d be really hard not to notice the beauty of that shore, though
with all the sakura trees in full bloom.
We also implemented a feature that you requested under nearly every Shooting Range.
The game now has a map filtering tool, allowing you to mark the maps you don’t like.
If the majority of players from the matching queue have the same mission or location marked as unwanted
they will get reduced chances of getting a game on that map.
Furthermore, players with premium accounts can completely remove specific missions or locations from rotation.
Obviously, that’s just a part of a long list of changes that Update 1.91 brings to the game.
The full list can be found at our official site;
We are also going to discuss many new features and vehicles in upcoming videos on this very channel.
So stay tuned!
See you in battle then!
Take a look at all the things coming to War Thunder with the update with your own eyes,
tell us what you think in the comments… and stay with us.
There are a lot of exciting things yet to come!

  1. Garbage update. More lag, game crashes, packet loss occurrences, inconsistencies with hit regulation, and I have no idea who signed off on the new sound effects but they should be fired. Gaijin… you never impress, always disappoint

  3. Hey I was wondering if you ever going to add in the boulton paul defiant it’s one of my favourite aircrafts of ww2 after the spitfire and sword fish. I think it could be fun aircraft to use and you could make it premium I would total pay to use it or just to have it in the game

  4. Maus and Panther II: removed because they didn't exist
    E-100 and literally every Japanese tank between tier 1 and 4: sweating

  5. Bruh if the F-4 was added it’s only a matter of time before the F-5 freedom fighter and B-58 hustler are added to the American tech tree

  6. I thought the Chinese aircraft were going to be trash. But I was wrong.
    One of the reserve craft. Can be loaded up with bombs AND rockets! With a hologram gunsight. And that's just the reserve! Imagine what's in store for top tear!

  7. They need to improve the graphics. I havn't played it in so long because the graphics look so tacky. Take 6:27 for example, no lighting effects or anything. The buildings look like they have hardly any textures to them.

  8. Honestly I was rhinking bout Chine but wasnt considering it rather a mixed wwii axis minor tree with Hungarians and Romanians, but this also just as good and interesting

  9. China never had a licence to build any Migs, or any weaponry. They've just reverse engineered it and built it without USSR's permissions. Stealing and buying are two different things. Then again, what do I expect from you lot.

  10. We just wanted more diverse map rotations but not an option to remove maps from the queues. This way you've decreased the already lacking variety of playable maps. I haven't seen some of the maps for months now, and since 1.91 came out i could only get matches on the same 6 maps. No matter which br I play it's always Sina, Alaska, Stalingrad, Cargoport, Japan and Advance to the Rhine. I'm getting sick of the same maps. I used to have such a diverse rotations but now it's de'ja vu in every single match. Most of us complained about Italy yeah we do want that map gone bc it ridiculously favoures the team with the faster vehicles but other than that our problem was monotone rotations.

  11. THE GAME GOOD,BUT IF YOU ATACK THEM HHOHOHOOO,,, MY COMMEND WAS BLOCKED AND I SPEND A LOT OF EUROS ON THOS THINGS,,,,THE GHAME IS LOSING MORE MORE DOLLARS ITS THERE OWN FULT

  13. It’s not a new “Nation” It’s just The same Nation but with tanks, if you want to add a new nation add a somthin like Sweden or somthin, also, rip Maus

  14. I like how they took their time to explain how the tech works which I think is awesome because not a lot of game devs do that. They put out an update and that's it.

  15. Fix the compression of the BR. And do something about the up tiring. IT needs to be a level playing field not a slaughter. If you do not you will bleed many more players the game is dead

  16. This update has basically made all my effort pointless, the only reason I chose to grind the German line was to get the maid because it's my favourite tank. So all that effort was for nothing

  17. @WarThunderOffical you guys need to add an a10 warthog in the American attack plane and then have the brrt sound I have always love this game and I would love it 10000000x more if that was there
