Kirill Vostretsov, game designer:

The Pe-8 is easy to shoot down when at low altitude as it is a heavy strategic bomber, and it's safer to bomb from high altitudes where the Pe-8 is far enough away to not be damaged by the bomb's splash damage, even without a fuse.

War Thunder players have asked for this aircraft for a long time. The Pe-8 was an exemplary development from Soviet engineering, an aircraft capable of carrying an impressive four-ton bomb load over great distances. Apart from that, the Pe-8 was well defended by its powerful defensive weaponry of various calibres, including ShVAK cannons. This was the reason this aircraft was often called the “Soviet Flying Fortress”.

Sergey Kapitsyn, artist:

Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of information left about this aircraft and very few pictures. Any pictures we did find we had to search comprehensively for. The aircraft is very big and complex, we put a huge amount of effort into it. We endeavoured to recreate this giant as accurately as we possibly could.

I giocatori di War Thunder hanno chiesto questo aereo per lungo tempo. Il Pe-8 è stato uno sviluppo esemplare, di progettazione sovietica, un aereo in grado di trasportare un impressionante peso di quattro tonnellate di bombe su grandi distanze. A parte questo, il Pe-8 era ben difeso dal suo potente armamento difensivo di vario calibro, tra cui cannoni ShVAK. Questa è stata la ragione per cui questo aereo è stato spesso chiamato il “la Fortezza Volante Sovietica”.

Purtroppo non ci un sacco di informazioni su questo aereo e molto poche immagini. Ogni foto che abbiamo trovato l’abbiamo dovuta esaminare attentamente. Il velivolo è molto grande e complesso e ci siamo impegnati molto per realizzarlo. Abbiamo cercato di ricreare questo gigante con la massima precisione che potevamo.
