Danish developer Reto-Moto has added new planes and tail gunner mechanics to their popular WW2 MMOFPS Heroes & Generals with the release of the game’s Ihlefeld – Warbirds and Tail Gunners update.
The new reconnaissance planes include the Soviet Polikarpov R-Z, German Henschel Hs-126 B-1 and U.S. Curtiss O-52 Owl. “Reconnaissance planes as a class fits very well with the overall long term plans for aerial combat in Heroes & Generals, and they add to the complete war experience,” says Reto-Moto game director Jacob Andersen. “We have chosen these specific three planes not only because they are visually appealing, but they also all have a gunner seat adding a new experience to the game and enhancing teamplay. Plus they are planes rarely seen in other video games.”
All three new planes also let players join as a dedicated support gunner to protect friends in the sky and on the ground. The flight physics model and controls have been reworked in the update as well, making the handling of all planes feel more natural.

In addition, Heroes & Generals has also now been localised in Turkish. “We are happy that we can provide our large group of Heroes & Generals players from Turkey with an improved game experience by adding support for Turkish language. And of course we look forward to even more Turkish players joining the game and our community,” adds Jacob Andersen.
