War Thunder is an online action aircraft simulator placed during the WWII. Once you download it, you will be able to select different kinds of aircraft depending on the faction you choose to play. This MMO (Multiplayer Massive Online) will give you the opportunity of testing your pilot skills against other players which will be trying to take you down of the battle.

The simulator tries to be as realistic as possible, and in order to do that, the high quality graphics will need a powerful computer to keep a good performance some times during your battles. The maps are really big, with different landscape elements to take advantage. Trees, lakes and even mountains can be your allies or the reason for your lost game, just have map awareness in order to not fall on your enemies’ traps.

The physics of the MMO game are quite realistic and the effects of the attacks can be visible in your aircraft. You can lose parts of the vehicle such as a wing that will really affect to the machine performance, or even it will make you crush. The player will be requested to eliminate the enemy team without dying, so arm yourself to hunt them down.

How to play

The objective of these micro-transactions in War Thunder is that the pilots, through their experiences and missions, get win 'Lions'. When you start to play, you have access to five different air forces to gain experience on flying, one by one. The experience in this MMO game is a kind of power-up with which you can have access to more planes. You can also pay to have access to more aircraft with the 'Lions' that you have earned until the moment. The price of each aircraft on War Thunder depends of the level where you are, more levels means that you must pay more "lions".

Once you download War Thunder, as previously mentioned, you will see that there is a payment system called 'Lions', but the official currency is 'Eagles'. The value of 'Eagles' is higher than ‘Lions’; therefore, with 'Eagles' you can get access to special aircraft and premium flight time. Paying 'Eagles' means you get more experience in each force Aerial, because you can fly in a free form during more time and you will increase the training of your team.

The simulator dispose of "packs" that you can buy and with which you can acquire more “Eagles”. The crew training can be specified by type of aircraft. In War Thunder there are planes that are lighter, more precise, with better confrontation to gravity, among others features that make then desirables. But if you break free of the aircraft, or you replace them, means that players lose the accrued crew training
