Wargaming.net has shared
video, images and information for the newly-announced range of Soviet
craft for its upcoming World of Warplanes. Joining legendary craft
from the history of American and German air warfare, the Russian
planes include the La-5 fighter and Il-2 Sturmovik, star of
the eponymous flight-sim. And now here's a clip of Russian biplanes
blowing things up to dubstep, which is the best use of either we've

World of Warplanes is
Wargaming's ambitious follow-up to World of Tanks, even as the latter
continues to expand its dominance of the mid-century war-MMO genre.
The game's currently in closed Alpha testing, with the first round of
testers having been given the chocks away (old-time pilot-talk for
“okay you can play now”) this week. The company's now taking applications for future Alpha participants, saying there's no limit on the
amount of players it's willing to offer a potential preview in
exchange for testing duties.
