Gaijin Entertainment's War Thunder has offered a great mix of combat from planes, tanks, and ships, but starting with update 1.81 testing of combat helicopters will introduce a new twist to the battlefield. The first helicopters will be American and Soviet ones, with more to follow... you can pick up premium packs featuring the helicopters now. To begin with, helicopters will join the fray in the combined arms mode, but there are also plans to add helicopter only modes.
