*This tuning requires the latest SRS Beta to resolve issues with low Yaw telemetry*
Below is the general tuning for War Thunder. The tuning is based on telemetry captured from various tiers of aircraft in the game from bi-planes, jets, bombers, to helicopters. The General Tuning has been tested on various aircraft from various countries. However, War Thunder is more an arcade sim vs a realistic sim experience so expectations of performance should be adjusted accordingly. IMPORTANT NOTE ON MISSING PITCH, ROLL, & YAW MOVEMENT: Telemetry for pitch and roll in War Thunder is missing for certain aircraft. This includes the initial aircraft utilized for the training mission, many of the 1st tier aircraft as well a few in other tiers. This is not an issue with Sim Racing Studio, the telemetry for pitch and roll just does not exist for certain aircraft due to the buggy nature of War Thunder. In addition, there are certain helicopters (Russian Ka50) that do not have Yaw telemetry available. War Thunder simply does not provide Yaw telemetry for these helicopters. WARNING: EXTREME SURGE MOVEMENT WHEN LOADING: War Thunder has buggy telemetry that can randomly cause the the platform to surge/pitch forward when first loading an aircraft. The movement will cease after the plane has loaded. There is no way to filter this movement without impacting normal flight. NOTE ON DISABLED SWAY: War Thunder does not have Sway telemetry. The current values that War Thunder exports is associated with Angle of Sideslip (AoS) which is not an accurate representation of Sway and the g-forces associates with Sway telemetry. Therefore, it has been disabled in this tuning. It is HIGHLY recommended you disable any Sway in tunings by reducing the Effects slider to 0 and setting Max Telemetry to 1800 as indicated in the General Tuning. IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE NEGATIVE MAX TELEMETRY VALUES: War Thunder's telemetry output for Yaw is opposite of what is found in the majority of flight simulators. The Yaw axis has been inverted in the General Tuning for use with motion platforms.
NO MOTION FOR GROUND AND NAVAL VEHICLES: War Thunder does not provide any telemetry for ground or naval vehicles. Thus, there will be no movement available for motion platforms. JERKY MOTION WHEN FLYING: The output rate of telemetry from War Thunder is extremely low and will likely result in some jerky or "steppy" type motion when pitching or rolling over a gradual period of time. Unfortunately, there is no fix for the lack of smooth movement at this time.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR H6/P6 USERS: It is recommended to enable Enhanced G-Forces at the bottom of the Motion Tuning page for War Thunder due to its flight model and issues related to Surge. It will provide a sustained feeling for Surge or Sway by converting the Surge effect into Pitch and the Sway effect into Roll. If you turn Enhanced G-Forces OFF, you will feel the Sway and Surge effects available for those platforms; however, the effect only lasts during the range of motion since it's parallel to the ground. This option only appears for these 6-axis platforms. Note: To set a general tuning for a game, launch SRS, select TUNING, and click on the magnifying glass icon in the Profile In Use section in the upper right. Select the game to tune, and adjust the sliders and max telemetry as needed. Click SAVE when finished. The tuning will now be the default for the game. When an aircraft is selected and loaded in game, you can set the tuning for the specific aircraft as it will be listed underneath the game title.

War Thunder General Tuning
Notes: Pitch and Roll has been prioritized and balanced against the performance of numerous fighter aircraft. Yaw has been reversed to match in game movements. Sway has been disabled to avoid inaccurate telemetry output of Angle of Sideslip (AoS). It is recommended for H6/P6 users to leave Enhanced G-Forces enabled due to lack of Sway telemetry.
