Wargaming.net have released a new trailer for World of Warplanes, showing in game fighter squadrons in acrobatic aerial combat. This trailer focuses on fighters, the lightest of World of Warplanes three classes.

promised, but those fast and nimble dogfights look like glorious fun.
Much like World of Tanks, World of Warplanes is expected to have a wide variety of historical fighters and experimental prototypes for players to fly.

World of Warplanes is currently in alpha testing, and Wargaming.net say a closed beta is 'coming soon'. For more information, check out our
