War Thunder User Leaks Restricted AH-64D Apache Longbow Documents: A Breach Too Far?


In a concerning trend, War Thunder users have leaked restricted military documents for the third time in a month. The latest leak involves the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter, with the technical manual being posted on the War Thunder forums by a user named BarteG98PL.


The Nature of the Leak

The leaked document for the AH-64D Apache Longbow is particularly alarming as it was marked with a “DOD AND DOD CONTRACTORS ONLY” warning. This suggests that the document was not intended for public consumption and could contain sensitive information.

Previous Incidents

This is not the first time War Thunder users have leaked restricted documents. Earlier leaks involved the Eurofighter Typhoon DA7 and the F-117 Nighthawk. While those documents were technically available to most consumers, they were embargoed to non-NATO countries, making their dissemination problematic.

Legal Implications

The leak could potentially lead to legal consequences for the individual responsible, as well as for the War Thunder platform if it is found to have been negligent in allowing the leak to occur. The document’s restricted nature could trigger an investigation by defense and security agencies.

Security Implications

The leak of a restricted document poses a risk to national security, especially if it contains sensitive or classified information that could be exploited by adversaries. The repeated nature of such leaks on War Thunder forums also raises questions about the platform’s security measures.


The leak of the AH-64D Apache Longbow’s technical manual on War Thunder forums is a serious matter that could have both legal and security implications. It highlights the need for stricter controls on the dissemination of restricted or sensitive information, especially on public platforms.
