* ATeamFiring: Most air battle maps feature enemy and allied AI-controlled ground units such as pillboxes, tanks, artillery guns and ships. Of the hundreds of shells they fire none of them seem to actually hit their target.


Added DiffLines:

* NitroBoost: The War Emergency Power engine setting on most planes allows them to produce extra engine power, albeit overheating the engine more quickly. Some planes such as late war German fighters are equipped with the MW-50 Methanol-Water injection system or the GM-1 nitrous oxide injection system to give them even more horsepower for a limited time.

*** Even Thunder Show chimed in for the occasion with their [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-6UWCxJXCc episode]] featuring rather mundane gameplay clips [[StylisticSuck shot from the senders' phones]]. Oh, and the prize? 5000 ''Silver Lions''.

*** The Shooting Range [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TcbJLHJ6sA episode]] on the same day has also joined the celebration by having its opening narrated in Russian. [[spoiler: Opening the captions only reveals [[CaptionHumor "bli bli bli"]] throughout the intro.]] And it includes the [=XF5U=] Flying Flapjack, [[StupidJetpackHitler some top-secret Nazi spaceship]], a monster truck, and the Hotline section giving out rather ridiculous answers to commenters' questions.

** On the Ground Forces front, American tanks are painted in a dark green, Soviet tanks in a light yellow-green/ khaki combination, while German vehicles are divided in gray for early-war vehicles and dark-yellow/camouflage combo for mid and late-war vehicles.

Japanese vehicles vary, but usually they're olive green for early-mid-tier tanks or spring green for later ones. British vehicles are all dark-green.

*** Considering Brexit was triggered a few days earlier, Gaijin made a reference to this...by offering a [[http://warthunder.com/en/news/4608-news-a-revolt-in-war-thunder-en/ discounted bundle of British (and American) vehicles]].

** As of the latest patches, the Germans now have several Flak Panzers like the Wirbelwind, Ostwind, [[SuperPrototype Kugelblitz, and Coelian]]. The Soviets now have more decent AntiAirs in the form of the ZSU-37 and ZSU-57-2, the latter of which is even capable of destroying heavy tanks at mid-range. Finally, the Americans have several M3 Halftrack variants mounting pairs of .50 cals, the M19 and the M42 Duster armed with two twin 40-mm cannons, and as of v1.63 the M163 [=VADS=] with a 6-barreled [[GatlingGood M61 Vulcan cannon]].

** 2016 features the [[BritsWithBattleships Royal Navy]] tech tree, which is mainly composed of sailing ships. There is [[spoiler: a Kraken that will attack you]] at the edge of the map as well. In addition, all the menu and battle music was changed to sea shanties and ''[[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Pirates of the Caribbean]]''-esque music. This actually turned out to be a bit of {{Foreshadowing}}, as Gaijin announced plans to implement playable naval vessels just a few months later.
