Steel Generals: A new initiative!
Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.

Dear players!

Steel Generals are on their way and eager to join battlefields of War Thunder in Update 1.45!

Right after the 1.45 Update is launched all players will have the 1st rank of the US armoured vehicle tree:

M2A4, M3 Light, M2 Medium, M3 Medium, M13 MGC and premiums: M2A4 (1st Arm.Div.), Grant I.


Later, every few days we will add 2 more vehicles - the ones the Testing team will have checked. You will be able to join this team!

We are starting a unique project “Help the developers to do the final work on Steel Generals!” Join the testers’ team and test all of the US vehicles or alternatively you can wait for them to appear in your hangar.


For the first time in the project’s history we invite our players to take part in the most important stage of development: testing new vehicles in the same battles with the ones that were in the game before.

The testers’ task - to help us uncover even the most insignificant bugs and tune the Battle Rating accurately. Thus we hope that your help will make it possible to make the launch of US ground vehicles of the highest quality.
