Wargaming.net, has unveiled the third faction of its flight combat action MMO World of Warplanes, the Soviets.
The game is currently in its global alpha phase, where an army of test pilots are assisting the development team in improving and polishing the gameplay.
The initial Soviet tech tree will include the legendary La-5 light fighter and Il-2 ground-attack plane, along with more than 20 other warbirds. Additional planes will be added to the Soviet line as the game nears launch.
"We are glad to finally introduce the latter of the big trio," said World of Warplanes producer Anton Sitnikau. "We are always striving to reach a combination of accuracy and fun in our games and hope our test pilots currently in global alpha will find the Soviet warbirds as fun to fly as the American and German planes."
