Game developer and publisher Wargaming have now introduced US carrier-based aircraft - a unique line of warplanes to fight in the virtual skies of flight combat MMO World of Warplanes.
The US tech tree features nine iconic carrier-based aircraft from the United States Navy, including the Grumman F2F and Brewster F2A Buffalo, the first biplane fighters with retractable undercarriage, as well as the boldly designed Chance Vought F5U and Vought F7U Cutlass fighters, both of which pioneered the use of turbojet power. Other WWII-famed carrier-based aircraft, such as F4F Wildcat, F4U Corsair and Goodyear F2G "Super" Corsair, offer even more options for players.
With often unique and unorthodox body designs, carrier-based aircraft were also known for their ability to carry a wide variety of armaments, as well as carried a reputation for exceptional ruggedness under the most extreme conditions. They were also, however, highly maneuverable and able to carry an increased fuel load, making them perfect choices for intense dogfights, formidable surface attacks and reconnaissance missions.
World of Warplanes is currently in closed beta, where virtual pilots are invited to experience the thrill of aerial dogfighting combat in 59 different aircraft from Germany, the United States and the U.S.S.R, across four unique maps.
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.
