Update 2.1.16 introduces a brand-new reward aircraft:
This is the iconic Stuka dive-bomber carrying a 1,000 kg bomb. By trading the 37-mm cannons of the researchable Ju 87 G for less powerful 20-mm ones, it gained the ability to wipe out ground objects in one strike frequently and consistently.
To earn it, you'll need to participate in the upcoming game event.
New Paint Schemes
We added a new Halloween-themed paint scheme for the Lavochkin La-9 and Lavochkin La-9RD. It gives +5% bonus to aircraft XP.
Also, new paint schemes have been made for the following aircraft:
Paint scheme characteristics:
- Concealment: +20%
- Resistance to damage from AA guns: +10%
- Resistance to damage from gunners: +5%
- Aircraft XP: +8%
These paint schemes will become available in future Premium Shop offers and as rewards during game events.
Several new memorable emblems have been added to the game:
- Halloween 2022
- Thanksgiving Day 2022
- World of Warplanes Anniversary 2022
New Unique Pilot
We added a new unique American pilot—Elise Clark. Details on her specialization and unique skills will be available at a later date.
