Anyway, it seems that the general consensus is that War Thunder's flight combat element is superior to that of it's competitor, 'World of Warplanes'. I'd like to see if that's a fair comment and what are the differences between what look like very similar games.

My first impressions weren't overly positive as right off the bat the War Thunder loading app repeatedly crashed when I attempted to start the game (apparently it's a known issue created by a recent update and hopefully it will be rectified with a patch soon). But, I eventually managed to get the game to run and here's some of my initial air combat training...
I have to familiarise myself with the flight controls and set-up my game-pad key layout but - so far - the mouse and key flight model (you can use a flight stick apparently) is a little jerky and sluggish. But I'll give it a chance and see I can customise it to make it more responsive.
