On the official forums, a War Thunder player leaked restricted documents.
This is not the first time this has happened.
According to Wikipedia, this is the twelfth time, and the second in less than a month.
This time, a user is accused of leaking classified pages from a flight manual, which contained information such as:
- Sensor locations
- Firearms angles
- Engine specs and more
Some Twitter users immediately pointed out that the information is not classified.
