The festive winter 2.1.1 update introduces new vehicles, aircraft balance changes, a marathon for the new Soviet multirole fighter, and, of course, New Year specials with a whole lot of surprises and gifts.
New Special Reward Aircraft:
- The Supermarine Spitfire Vb U.K. fighter. The aircraft is equipped with powerful machine guns and autocannons, and can boast decent maneuverability, boost, and speed;
- Beaufighter V — a British Tier V heavy fighter. Equipped with two 20-mm guns and a turret. In general, it is a light version of the regular heavy fighter;
- I-21 — a Soviet Tier V lightweight fighter. The aircraft's performance is optimized for Tier V — reduced maximum dive speed, cruise speed slightly decreased, the guns' characteristics in the "Specialist" configuration are similar to those in Stock configuration. The aircraft has a unique feature — five slots for equipment and five slots for consumables.
