In update 1.85 “Supersonic”, War Thunder will introduce the first supersonic jets: The Soviet MiG 19PT, the American F-100D Super Sabre and the British Javelin Mk.9. All these aircraft are supersonic and they are armed with a new weapon type – air-to-air missiles with infrared (heat) seeking.
Air-to-air missiles – a new type of munitions were designed to solve the problem of hitting targets that were flying at extremely high speeds. The first air-to-air missiles had limited capabilities with capture range and possible overload. To capture a target a homing device needs some time to lock on to a target and all this time the pilot has to hold the target in a pretty narrow sector.
New armament types will be introduced not only to combat planes, but to helicopters also. War Thunder will also add a simulation of a visual detection of a missile launch, that will be displayed in the interface. It will depend upon crew skills.
