War Thunder Receives Italian Air Force After Closed Testing Period

War Thunder finally receives Italian Air Force after closed testing period ends.

Gaijin Entertainment’s long-running aircraft combat MMO, War Thunder, is finally getting the Italian Air Force. The Italian Air Force was in closed testing for quite a while, and now it is finally coming to the main game.

The most noticeable jet fighters added are the Fiat G.91 and G.91R/1., but the studio revealed more iconic Italian vehicles will be added within the game’s next major update. Here is the official announcement:

Warmly welcomed by the players of War Thunder, the new Italian aircraft are now a common sight in the skies above the War Thunder battlefields. To prepare them for release, all Italian aircraft went through a closed playtest on the live servers, after which they were progressively unlocked for all players to research.

Both purchasers of one of the Italian Founder packs and active players of War Thunder could participate in the testing, giving the developers invaluable feedback in the process. Today, many virtual pilots have already mastered the unique and ingenious Italian designs, which now play a major role in any air combat they participate in.

Naturally, with the end of closed testing the development of the Italian Air Force in War Thunder is all but finished. New Italian content is already in development and will reach the players of War Thunder as soon as the next major update goes live. Further information will be published in time on the official Developer’s Blog here.

War Thunder is available on PS4 and PC.
