Heroes & Generals Ihlefeld - Warbirds and Tail Gunners Update Deployed, Video Released

The Ihlefeld update is named after Herbert Ihlefeld, a German fighter ace credited with 132 enemy aircraft shot down in more than 1,000 combat missions
Unveiling a video, Reto-Moto announced that a new update for Heroes & Generals is now live adding new planes: the Soviet Polikarpov R-Z, the German Henschel Hs-126 B-1, and the U.S. Curtiss O-52 Owl. All three new planes let players join as a dedicated support gunner to protect friends in the sky and on the ground. Players cannot exit the vehicle while fighting in this role but they can always exit to the deploy menu at any time. The dedicated support gunner role is also available in tanks.
The Ihlefeld - Warbirds and Tail Gunners update also includes reworked plane physics model and controls, making the handling of all planes feel more natural. Current pilots in Heroes & Generals will find that the planes they already own now fly almost twice as fast as before.
