Battle Pass vehicles: E.B.R. (1963)
An improved version of the French wheeled tank, equipped with a deadly 90mm gun with HEATFS shells!
The Sd.Kfz.251/22 is a further tank destroyer variant of the widely used German Sd.Kfz.251 series of halftracks, already familiar to some tankers. Combining its small size with an everything but small high velocity anti-tank cannon, the unique Sd.Kfz. 251/22 will soon await tankers as one of the main prizes in the upcoming new season of War Thunder Battle Pass!
On the 14th July we commemorate Bastille Day, where French revolutionaries stormed the Bastille fortress and marked a major turning point in the French Revolution in 1789. A salute to our friends in France. Bonne fête du 14 juillet!
