War Thunder 1.85 "Supersonic" update now available
War Thunder 1.85 "Supersonic" is a major update to Gaijin Entertainment's flagship product and — as its name suggests — it comes with supersonic aircraft. Other noticeable changes include the Italian ground vehicles tree, thermal guided air-to-air missiles, new ships, new locations, and many minor adjustments.

Gaijin Entertainment is back in style with the first supersonic aircraft to join War Thunder, but the latest update is about more than just these new planes and the thermal guided air-to-air missiles they can carry. War Thunder 1.85 "Supersonic" also comes with many Italian ground vehicles — sadly, in a Closed Beta stage for now — quite a few new planes and ground vehicles for most nations. Finally, the British Royal Navy is finally out of Closed Beta, so anyone can enjoy the boats that belong to it for free.

Leaving the Italian tree aside, we should mention some interesting new ground vehicles that have been added for the other nations: the M3 Bradley IFV, the T-72A main battle tank, and the Type 89 IFV. There are also quite a few new planes in the Italian tree, although some of them are German.

The jet fighters capable of supersonic flight that come with War Thunder 1.85 are the American F-100D, the Russian MiG-19PT, and the British Javelin Mk.9

In addition to all the new vehicles mentioned above — and the few ones that I skipped — War Thunder 1.85 "Supersonic" also includes a few destroyers and cruisers, new locations and missions, as well as a Christmas-themed hangar. Some of these changes can be seen in the image gallery and the official video review of the update embedded below, so feel free to take your time to enjoy them.

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.
