How can you get The M4A5 Ram II (USA)? Warbonds!
Pilots and tankers, we now have new offers for you in the renewed “Warbonds” shop. The beginning of the new month will give you access to new premium vehicles which will be available for the completion of battle tasks.
In order to receive them, just complete daily Battle tasks in War Thunder battles and earn a special currency - “Warbonds”, which can be used to purchase vehicles previously only obtainable with Golden Eagles!
Two of the five available vehicles:
M4A5 Ram II (USA)
The M4A5 Ram II (USA) - is a modification of the M3 Lee medium tank. First of all it has an excellent QF Mk III 6 pdr (57 mm) cannon, this is an accurate, powerful and rapid firing gun. The M4A5 has good armour for its rank, especially at the front and the 5 man crew also provides better survivability in the game. This is a very versatile tank which can perform a wide variety of tasks in battle - you may choose a role based on what you personally prefer.
T-34 747(r) (Germany)
The T-34-747(r) (Germany) - Appears for the first time in the warbond shop. This is the T-34 with a 76mm F-34 cannon, but in the German ground forces tree. What did the Germans do when they first captured this new tank? Right, they mounted a commander's cupola. The rest is the same as the original, a universal combat vehicle, which is still effective and will be definitely loved by German tankers.
The current war bonds will not be removed immediately at this time, you will still be able to use them only until the 7th of September for the purchase of some goods in the war bond shop.

Battle tasks - these individual tasks bring variety into the gameplay and prevent situations when all the players in a battle try to complete one specific task ignoring mission objectives needed for a victory. They are available for players that have reached the 3rd rank of any nation. For completion, the player will receive Silver Lions and Warbonds - special in-game currency with their own shop, where you can purchase a lot of different items.
