War Thunder: Aircraft: Fighters

They are the very core of every nation's air forces, and fighter pilots are the elite. Fighter planes are designed for air-to-air combat with enemy aircraft, for ground attacks and even bomb runs.

Ground Attack Aircraft

War Thunder: Ground Attack Aircraft

Their primary role is attacking enemy targets on the ground: from infantry units to tanks, from armored trains to airfields. While fighters are often engaged in aerial combat high in the sky, the ground attacking aircraft need to fly quite low to hit their targets.

What Ground Forces are Available in the Game?

For ground forces we currently have two nations: USSR and Germany. Light and heavy tanks, Self-propelled artillery guns and anti-air vehicles.
