Do you want to be the nimble aircraft flying gracefully through the skies with a peashooter strapped to your wing or would you rather take it slow and have giant cannons spitting out marker sized bullets that shred your opponents in seconds? Wargaming.net just added that second option to World of Warplanes with its Heavy Fighters update. While it’s true a smaller aircraft can run circles around its heavily armored counterpart you’ll also be the most versatile weapon on the battlefield should you choose such favorites as the Fw.57, Bf.110, Me.410 and Me.P.1102. Check out the screenshots below to see these great planes in action and see you in the unfriendly skies!
World of Warplanes Ups Its Firepower with Intro of Heavy Fighters
8th May 2012 — Wargaming.net, the award-winning videogame developer and publisher, introduced today Heavy Fighters, the second of several rock-paper-scissors warplane classes that will take over the skies in the company’s highly anticipated flight combat MMO, World of Warplanes.
Featuring such names as the Fw.57, Bf.110, Me.410 and Me.P.1102, heavy fighters are currently represented in the German line of warbirds, and will be gradually added to other national rosters.
Their size, power and armament allow heavy fighters to fulfill a great variety of objectives including interception, head-on attacks and bombing, making them one of the most versatile classes of air forces.
“If you want speed and adrenaline, you will probably go for lighter fighters, whereas heavies provide greater firepower,” said World of Warplanes Project Manager, Alex Zezulin. “Knowing the strengths of your heavy fighter will give you the feel of devastating power under your total control.”
About World of Warplanes World of Warplanes is the flight combat MMO action game set in the Golden Age of military aviation. The game continues the armored warfare theme marked in the highly-acclaimed World of Tanks and will throw players into a never-ending tussle for air dominance.
World of Warplanes will allow players to build full-scale careers as virtual pilots offering machines from several key eras, from1930′s biplanes to the Korean War jet fighters that led the way to modern air forces.
World of Warplanes will feature a wide range of warbirds, each of them unique in their effectiveness and behavior. Virtual pilots will choose from three main warplane classes – single-engine light fighters capable of engaging enemies in close dogfights, heavy fighters with their deadly straight attacks, and strafing aircrafts, the fearsome threat to ground targets.
Every plane will feature multiple variations of ammo types, engines, and other crucial modules, and their various combinations will allow players to pick the optimal configuration for the most effective behavior in combat. Find more about World of Warplanes at:
