Update 3.66 has arrived for War Thunder, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch.

On PS4 the update number is 3.66, whereas the patch number on PS5 it’s 01.000.032. Officially though, the patch number is known as version 2.5.1.149 on PC and version 2.5.1.144 on consoles.

Despite all these different numbers, the patch should have the same function on all platforms. While no new major content has been added to the game today, you can expect to see many bug fixes. The developer has also altered the specs for some of the vehicles in the game too.

You can read the full patch notes posted down below.
