The Caudron CR.714 is a lightweight, pre-WW2 fighter aircraft, developed to be mass produced quickly and at low cost, in hopes of increasing the number of aircraft available to the French Air Force. Soon, War Thunder pilots and fans of French aviation can look forward to the addition of the CR.714 to the ranks of the newly formed French aviation tree, coming to War Thunder in update 1.73 !
The Potez P.630 and P.631 are sibling heavy fighter designs, developed in the mid 1930s for the French military. At the outbreak of WW2, this aircraft, along with several others, formed the backbone of the French air force at the time. Coming with Update 1.73, the Potez P.631 will strive to take up this vital role once again with the introduction of the much anticipated French nation to War Thunder!
This time around, 196 cheaters bit the bullet. Yay! List in the full news.
France’s planned new post-war carrier fleets needed an equally new, but effective and reliable fighter and attack aircraft – step forward, the SO.8000 Narval, an unorthodox twin-boom, pusher-prop fighter developed specifically for carrier operations. However, despite it failing to pass prototype stage, War Thunder pilots can now look forward to harnessing the power of this unruly French avian beast in the upcoming update 1.73!
