Producer Anton Sitnikau stated, "The inclusion of Japanese warbirds... [is] really going to provide players with a wide variety of tactical freedom in how they play the game and combat other players." Players will benefit from the speed, power, and maneuverability of these planes as well as an increased field of vision.
