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.
