War Thunder Laptop Requirements

The system requirements are ordinary; almost any new laptop with a dedicated graphics processing unit is passable for successfully running War Thunder. GeForce GTX 780M or better mobile GPU is required.

16gb is a high amount of RAM, which has to be taken to account when choosing a laptop. 4gb is enough if you only want to meet the minimum requirements.

Also, note that at least 39gb of hard drive space is required, which is quite big if you plan to install many games.
