Ba.88 Lince: A Wild Spirit
Room 8 Studio created one more plane Ba.88 Lince for the project “War Thunder” by Gaijin Entertainment, which will contribute to the game update 1.69 Regia Aeronautica.
The Ba.88 Lince (“lynx”) is an Italian attacker aircraft produced by the well-known Breda company. The Lynx’s first flight took place in October of 1936, and serial production began in 1939.
The armament of the new attacker consists of three 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT frontal machine guns and one 7.7 mm Breda-SAFAT defensive machine gun located on the rear turret. Few aircraft of this class are fitted with defensive weaponry, which means that the Lynx’s chances of survival on the battlefield are much higher. The Ba.88 can also carry bombs when necessary: three 50 kg, three 100 kg, or two 250 kg bombs, making this new attacker a welcome addition to the Battles in War Thunder.
The Italian Ba.88 Lince attacker will appear in update 1.69 Regia Aeronautica and will take its place in the first rank of the Italian aviation tech tree. History may have been cruel to this wildcat, but above the fields of War Thunder, the Lynx will get its long-awaited chance for redemption.
