On December 21, from 00:00 PT / 03:00 ET to 04:00 PT / 07:00 ET, the servers will undergo maintenance to deploy an update of the game. Update 2.1.17 will bring a new Premium aircraft, a new supply crate, a few festive events, and much more!
Update from the previous version: SD—90.54 MB, HD—78.10 MB (in addition to SD).
Update 2.1.17 introduces a brand-new reward aircraft:
This powerful, heavily armed warplane was specifically designed as a night fighter. It saw combat all across the globe in World War II and is unofficially credited with the last Allied air victory of the war on August 14, 1945. In-game, this heavy fighter will impress you with powerful fuselage-mounted autocannons and a formidable turret equipped with machine guns. While it's not the fastest, its durable boost and high ceiling will make it a great plane for intercepting bombers and hunting enemies all over the map.
To earn it, you'll need to participate in the upcoming game event.
