War Thunder Player Leaks Classified Military Documents

The popular video game War Thunder has leaked classified military documents twelve times before. What will the government do about this?

 A player of War Thunder has leaked classified documents about the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk. The player revealed the fight manual of this plane. The manual includes the fire angles and how to pilot it. This information is held by the U.S. military, and if these documents go out to the public, other countries may use it to copy the design of the plane.

This is not the first time this has happened. The game has faced many incidents like this before. 12 times players have gotten ahold of classified information. The game admins will cooperate and delete the posts, but they are often too late and the populace reveals it to the public.

The game’s policy has changed after these incidents but doesn’t seem to be doing anything to stop this. These players end up getting banned and reported to local police, which in turn gets them arrested for mishandling classified information. Content creators and many players have spoken out. They claim that it is embarrassing and shouldn’t be happening. 

The reasoning behind this is that many players have been complaining that the game isn’t realistic. So in order to stop their squabble, others leak documents. Hopefully, War Thunder can figure out how to stop this from happening in the future.
