Sky Duels#2: "Sabres" vs. MiG's
Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.


Sixty years ago,  on 27th of July 1953 the war in Korea that lasted 3 years, came to an end.

In 1950 Soviet and American pilots for the first time met each other in battle. American F-86 "Sabre" and Soviet MiG-15 became symbols of that war - looking very much alike and having similar performance characteristics.

 


 

Community of War Thunder invites you to a unique event - friendly matches and Jet Airshow. In the skies of War Thunder "Sabres" will confront MiG's once more. This is no contest, just a friendly show.

The event will start this Saturday, July 27th on 2pm GMT (7am PDT). Join the stream!
