Wargaming.net published today a few new screenshots and a new trailer of World or Warplanes, featuring some of the powerful ground pounders that will be will be included in the game when it will be launched later this year.
Ground attack planes, including the legendary Sturmovik line that will come in the Soviet tech tree, will be slow but more armored than fighters, and will be able to lead a team to victory by obliterating objectives on the ground.
World of Warplanes Project Manager Alex Zezulin (that we recently interviewed here) said:
This is the best example of what a flying tank would be like. Ground-attack planes are heavy, slow-paced, close to invulnerable machines that might have the most important objective in combat: to eliminate any ground-based resistance and ensure the safety of their lighter allies.
