Welcome to our new War Thunder - Snail Awards!

Dear Players!

In our most recent competition, we are looking for the Michael Bays, Steven Spielbergs and James Camerons within our Community, to create a series of Community trailers for War Thunder that do one thing above all: kick ass! If you think you know how to make an amazing trailer, then don’t waste any time, start filming right now and cash in on the prizes. There is plenty of time for some amazing shots, as the deadline for this competition is set to the 30th of September.

Our very first Snail Awards is all about Combined Battles, a detailed description follows below. If you’re unsure about what we are looking for, check out our official Ground Forces and US Tanks release trailers as a reference.


Create the best War Thunder trailer focussing on Ground Forces combat supported (and hunted!) by aircraft. Showcase everything that makes War Thunder’s land battles epic: impressive and varied vehicle models, massive battles, hit- and deathcam, artillery and aircraft strikes, buzzing shells and machine guns, AA fire, rockets, bombs - you got it. Don’t be shy to capture a lot of action and emotion!

Participants can receive one of the following awards:

Wear this badge with pride on the official forums, and receive 10.000 Golden Eagles!
Wear this badge with pride on the official forums, and receive 7.500 Golden Eagles!
Wear this badge with pride on the official forums, and receive 5.000 Golden Eagles!

Out of all the videos submitted by users, we will pick the best videos and award them with one of our Snail Awards depending on their quality. As an example: It is thus possible that multiple, or no video will, for example, receive a Golden Snail award.

The Snail Award includes a prize reward in Golden Eagles and will also be visible on the user’s profile on our official forum.
