The MMO World of Warplanes
is only in its alpha build, but developer and publisher Waraming.net has released another unit, the ground attack plane. These aircraft are capable of strafing runs, dive bombing, and missile attacks on ground targets.
Some of the possible ground attack planes are II-2, II-10, and the II-40 "sturmoviks," a Soviet model that will expand into other nations when the game launches.
"This is the best example of what a flying tank would be like," said World of Warplanes Project Manager, Alex Zezulin. "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."
