    Default Help repairing airplanes?

    So I introduced my friend to war thunder and we took our Gladiators for a Realistic Battle :) He managed to crash on take off and we had a good laugh about it :D

    But then I flew by him while he was repairing and I got an option to help him, someting like "Press 'U' to help repair plane". I was curious about it and went for another pass and clicked the button.
    I got a timer that flashed "repair time remaining: 00.49" and his repair timer vanished :PP
    So now he couldn't repair. I landed and tried to knock him over but I passed right through(as per usual on airstrip). It ended up that I shot him and crashed so we could join another battle.

    So my question here is: What was that repair thingy? What's it meant for? How do I use it? xD

    its something introduced 2 patches back.It's a "Buddy' system of repairing 2x as fast as one would if alone.Originally,You just had to fly very close to them,and it would insta-repair.Now You must stay close,land if possible,and press U. This will cause their timer to wind down very fast,and the repairs to be done quickly!

    Its the same in tanks
    when your squad mate is repairing you can help by standing close and press U (default repair key)
    you will then help your team mate repair making the timer go a lot faster
    example: when the timer gives you 1 min repair time and your team mate is going to help,
    the moment he press the U key your timer will go to lets say 20 sec left instead of 1 min
    wich in battle can make the difference between live or death




    For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed,
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still.
