Also, to help simplify aiming, a 'leading marker' appears when an enemy plane is in range.This shows a prediction of where the enemy plane will be by the time the bullets of the smaller calibre weapon arrive if the plane continues its current trajectory, greatly improving user accuracy.In this mode, the game draws two teams of players (of up to 16 players on each side) with vehicles from different nations of similar combat performance.It is possible to see vehicles of the same type on different teams, and different countries on the player's own team. in very high speed dives planes do not have their wings ripped off and are still controllable, ground vehicles receive a boost in engine power), but retain some realism (e.g.For the majority of matches in this mode, players are selected to have only one nation per team, making it possible to recreate a real scenario, such as the Battle of Stalingrad between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.In Ground Realistic Battles, players get to use more than one vehicle per game through the use of Spawn Points, which are obtained by destroying enemy vehicles and capturing points. Like the Air Realistic Battles mode, players do not have access to enemy player markers, penetration indicators, or range indicators.For ground forces, "Domination" revolves around the capture of three strategic zones on the map, with "Conquest" featuring only one.
Examples are the recreation of historical battles by restricting available vehicles (e.g. Traditionally, the game developers prepare unconventional events for April Fools' Day.
Previously called "Historical Battles", this mode is designed for more advanced players and offers more realistic physics and damage modelling while retaining some of the interface and control simplifications of Arcade.
In Air Realistic Battles, fighters must take off from the airfield.
Players retain the option to have flaps, trim, and engines automatically controlled in Simulator mode.
The heads up display is available to display speed, altitude, heading, engine/throttle settings, oil and water temperatures, and basic vehicle damage status.
