War Thunder 1.83 "Masters of the Sea" update now available
War Thunder 1.83 "Masters of the Sea" introduces the British Royal Navy tech tree (in Closed Beta), but also brings in new German, Soviet, and American vessels. The naval forces of these three nations can now be played by everyone, but there is even more to this update, such as German helicopters, new planes, and new ground vehicles.
Codrut Nistor,

The new update, dubbed "Masters of the Sea" and carrying the version number 1.83, shows without any trace of doubt that War Thunder is moving rather quickly in the right direction. Although there are still many issues that Gaijin Entertainment needs to iron out, but the game's expansion in all areas definitely looks great. After all, it slowly started with planes a few years ago, and now there are also ground vehicles, naval forces, and even helicopters.

War Thunder 1.83 "Masters of the Sea" comes after last month's major update — 1.81 "The Walkyries" — which introduced helicopters belonging to the Soviets and the US (in a Closed Beta stage). Now, the German forces also get helicopters, but the main element of this update is the introduction — although in a Closed Beta stage — of the British Royal Navy tree.

In addition to the above, there are also a few new ground vehicles and planes — for example the Type 75 MLRS premium Japanese tank destroyer and the Ju 288 C premium bomber. However, there is also an ERA addon for the T-80B main battle tank that comes to improve this vehicle's existing set of upgrades, and it doesn't stop here.

The in-game screenshots I was able to generate earlier today and the official movie that shows the major changes of War Thunder 1.83 "Masters of the Sea" should be more than enough to close this piece of news, so feel free to spare those few minutes needed to enjoy them properly.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
