New German Bombers Take Flight in World of Warplanes

Left at the prototype stage, experience these aircraft for the first time in-game

A new collection of German bombers are ready to extend the line, launch from the runway and take to the skies. Ranging from Tier VII all the way up to Tier X, these new aircraft will help bolster the German tech tree. They are:

  • Junkers Ju 288 A, Tier VII. A fast bomber with two precise machine gun turrets that can drop its load from high above while staying in relative safety.
  • Junkers Ju 288 C, Tier VIII. Boasting a good top speed, this bomber can carry lots of bombs. They are dropped one by one, letting this warbird hit ground targets with just the right amount.
  • Junkers Ju 287, Tier IX. With 6 jet engines onboard, this German aircraft carries 4 devastatingly powerful bombs, each weighing 1 ton.
  • Junkers EF-131, Tier X. Like its predecessor, this bomber can drop bombs from high up above or go for a riskier tactic, swooping down for more precision.

All four bombers are steeped in history, however, these planes never made it beyond the prototype stage. World of Warplanes is the only place to fly these rare birds of prey and experience the evolution of German engineering. In-game, the new aircraft share common traits, namely: the effectiveness of their bombs and their speed alongside lasting boosts.

To support the launch of these planes, World of Warplanes has filmed a new video together with German thrash metal outfit, Kreator, incorporating their fitting song ‘Lion with Eagle Wings’. 



“What better way to celebrate German engineering than by teaming up with one the best German metal bands? Their fast, aggressive and technical style is great to play the game to,” states Al King, Product Marketing Director, World of Warplanes. “There will be a Kreator emblem available in the game for use on these new German bombers, as well as a Kreator-themed hangar during the promotional period.”
