Japanese naval vessels are coming to War Thunder

    
3

As part War Thunder’s effort to include every single combat vehicle ever designed by every major nation in the entire world, another research tree is arriving to the vehicular combat title in the form of Japanese naval vessels with update 1.89.

This new research tree will add an extra 20 naval craft to the game, including cruisers, torpedo boats, and destroyers. As of right now, players can get a more detailed look at two such vessels: The PG-02 artillery boat and the Kiyoshimo destroyer. Of course, those who are extremely hungry for new boats can buy in to closed beta testing of the upcoming content with pre-orders for one or both of these new ships.

Update 1.89 will also bring with it the heavy cruiser class of warship and the opportunity to join the Tester team for free by completing a number of daily tasks. Additional information about the coming update and other vessels arriving from the Japanese research tree are due in the next few weeks, but for now here’s where you can find more.

I’ve been tiring of my usual theme park mmo’s of late, and am in the mood for something completely different. I may have to give War Thunder a try. If the Massively staff and/or community has any advice or recommendations on mmo flight sims, please do share.

I’ve not played War Thunder and but I’ve always found the Japanese military fascinating. I have this book:

And really enjoyed it. As someone who really likes the history around the world wars, it was a great read.

Definitely putting this one on my reading list. On a related note, one of my most memorable and intense historical gaming experiences was Uncommon Valor: The Campaign for the South Pacific, playing as Imperial Japan. I held my breath every time the US Navy discovered and launched an attack on my precious carriers!
