World of Warplanes, a highly anticipated flight combat MMO, is currently giving dozens of aircraft some thorough testing in the game’s closed beta. Wargaming announced today that a new line of aircraft that will be joining the fray. Nine new carrier-based aircraft, all borrowed from the US Navy of yesteryear, will be available for players to use in massive 30-player virtual dogfights. A new trailer shows off some of these aircraft in action.
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.
Future World of Warplanes pilots now have 59 different American, German, and Russian aircraft to choose from. The game is due to be released later this year.
