World of Warplanes presents the ground-attack planesWargaming introduced ground-attack planes today into its flight combat MMO World of Warplanes, currently in its alpha testing stage. These heavily armed warbirds are a massively threatening class designed to wipe out ground targets. Discover them in this video preview.
Several legendary names stand out in the class of ground-attack planes, including the classic Il-2, Il-10, and the highly progressive jet-powered Il-40 "sturmoviks", which is presented in the Soviet tech tree, and will expand into models from other nations as World of Warplanes gets close to launch later this year. Ground-attack aircraft are most famous for deadly strafing runs, dive bombing and destructive missile attacks, while their armor provides high survivability and combat effectiveness.
