An online forum dedicated to the combat video game War Thunder has been the subject of controversy after a user published restricted information about a fighter jet.
War Thunder, created by Gaijin Entertainment, is a free-to-play game where users battle one another using different types of war vehicles from various decades.
Users often debate the historical and performance accuracy of the vehicles through the War Thunder forum. So when users began debating the F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jet last week, it did not seem unusual.
Then one user found and posted a formerly classified document about the fighter jet.
User spacenavy90 posted the document which outlined information about the use of AIM-120 AMRAAM on the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jet on Monday, 16 January.
