On the threshold of War Thunder’s new era of supersonic aircraft we’re introducing the first rank V premium fighters in the research lines of the USSR, USA, and Great Britain. These fighters will allow you to begin researching supersonic fighters more quickly, increase the rate at which you research any plane and its modifications in these nations, and grant an additional bonus to Research Points and income from Silver Lions. Here are our beauties:

This assault modification of the legendary MiG-15 was based on the late-series MiG-15bis modification. It was primarily intended for use against ground targets. The aircraft was equipped with two side-mounted beams to which inclined pylons for the unguided rockets,  or conventional pylons for up to 6 bombs, were attached. The rockets were installed at a 15° angle, which made it possible to perform targeted rocket fire while flying horizontally at low altitudes. There are a few loadouts for the attack aircraft in War Thunder, including 48 S-5 unguided rockets, and a few of 6х100 kg, 4х250 kg, or 2х500 kg HE bombs. This assault MiG is especially good in combined battles. Its excellent selection of rockets and bomb suspensions and the unusual position of its pylons create new opportunities for destroying high-ranking tanks when flying at low altitudes.
