The game does not include a health bar. Each accurate hit on enemy vehicles is evaluated depending on the type of weapon, the caliber of the projectile, the location and trajectory of the hit, and the type of armor. Guns vary in size, rate of fire, and spread. Projectiles are classified by size, mass, speed, presence of fragments and their spread, and other features. In the event of a hit into enemy vehicles, the materials of the point where the impact fell are taken into account, whether it be glass, wood, or various kinds of metals. For example: 8 cm of cast armor equates to 7.5 cm of rolled armor.
One of the key factors is the location of damage to enemy vehicles. So if the projectile damages any module of an enemy combat vehicle, it can instantly fail or the crew of the vehicle can suffer.
There are more than fifty map modifications in the game for all types of vehicles: air, land and sea. It is worth noting that the largest maps were created for aviation, as some locations cover an area ofmore than 15 thousand square kilometers.
