The forum moderators managed to act quickly because this is actually a fairly common occurrence.

The competitive combat vehicle simulator is popular among military buffs for the game’s attention to detail and commitment to accuracy.

Forum goers shortly began arguing if the documents were considered “classified” with some users arguing that the manual is available for purchase but trade embargoed in non-NATO countries.

War Thunder has been available on Windows PC, Linux, Mac (all via Steam), Android, iOS, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
