Update 1.03 Wings of War is here!

109 posts in this topic

The skies have become even more dangerous with the release of the new 1.03 update ‘Wings of War’.
This update adds new medium and heavy fighter planes as well as new options for flight controls, making it easier to be a pilot.

New Plane Controls

Flying a plane with the new default controls is basically as easy as aiming the mouse at where you want to go – we call this mouse aim mode.
You also have the option of using a camera aim mode as well as classic controls. And you can change how the throttle works, all to suit your individual play style.
We know that It takes skills to be a good pilot. That is why we have chosen to add different types of flight control options in the ‘Wings of War’-update making it fun to be a pilot for both new and veteran players.
Read more about the new plane controls here.

Three new planes

Three new planes are taking off in the 1.03 update ‘Wings of War’ – two heavy fighters and a medium fighter.
Soviet pilots get to fly the new Petlyakov Pe-3bis and German pilots can take off in the new Messerschmitt Me 410B-2. Both of these planes are heavy fighters.
Meanwhile American pilots get a brand new Curtiss P40N Warhawk Medium Fighter, as their current US P-38 now takes its proper place as a heavy fighter.

  • Soviet Petlyakov Pe-3bis
  • German Messerschmitt Me 410B-2
  • US Curtiss P-40N Warhawk

New Assault Teams in the war

With the release of the ‘Wings of War’-update all three factions now have a Reconnaissance airplane, a Medium Fighter, and a Heavy Fighter – making a difference in both battles and the war.
The new Heavy Fighters (and the upgraded P-38) flies in the Heavy Fighter Squadron assault team. You can now upgrade an assault team from Fighter Recon, to Fighter Squadron and then to Heavy Fighter Squadron.
Heavy Fighters uses a separate resource production, just like the other types of planes.

Update to Factory Map

A number of tweaks have been made to the the Factory Map to make it safer to deploy without getting attacked instantly.
Based on heatmaps and replays of how the map plays, our Level Designer Reto.Desji has also changed some routes through the buildings to improve the flow of the gameplay and make it more fun for both attacker and defender.

New paint jobs for old planes

It is cool to be a great pilot. It is even better when you look good while flying.
This is why the the three fighter planes, that have seen the most air time in Heroes & Generals, are getting brand new paint jobs and new factory paint jobs.
If you already own a Yak-9, Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 or US P-38 Lightning you will get to keep and use the old factory paint jobs – something that will set you apart as a veteran pilot.
Have a look at the new paint jobs here.


Other Changes

Here is a list of some additional features in the 1.03 - Wings of War update.

  • War had to be ended - in order to introduce the Heavy Fighter Assault Team and ensure production resources we had to end the war.
  • Speed adjustments have been made for the planes. They fly slightly slower, and you will not stall as easily at low speed.
  • Updated Anti-Cheat

...and much more

For a more detailed view take a look at this changelog post.

The rpm mods are bugged.

 

i wrote in development feedback, but apparently noone cares about ppsh and the poor SU faction.

 

they all care about mg42 only.

Hardly anyone uses MG42 anymore because its recoil is horrible lol. And what do you mean "the RPM mods are bugged"?

by using field trigger job, the rpm goes up to 800.

by adding lightened spring to it, rpm stays at 800, meaning lightened spring doesnt add any rpm, but only decreasing accuracy and stability while used with field trigger.

 

this bug was always there, since they patched so ppsh couldnt go 1024 rpm.

I just remembered that they also mentioned on the dev stream that they are changing the way they will update the game in the future.

They said they will make more frequent small updates from now on, with occasional bigger updates. So probably its also easier to just have a numerical naming system with "1.XX" for minor and "X.00" for major updates.

This update is a success, there are decent options for plane controls, three different plane classes and the new ME 410 is a beast. I can now go back to being a pilot and enjoy every aspect of H&G again, well done RETO on a speedy update and excellent answer to disgruntled pilots.
