War Thunder: 3 Years Anniversary Specials



Dear pilots, tankers, players!

We are happy to congratulate the pilots and tankers of War Thunder with the third anniversary of the game. 

During the past year, new maps and locations have been added and each one of them has introduced something special. The players were able to test the strength of the ice on the lakes of Finland, they could storm the White Rock fortress, join the capture of the Reichstag and participate in the Battle of Moscow

Dozens of new armoured machines have been added to the ground vehicles’ trees. Among them were rocket tanks, the first examples of the Cold War vehicles and the legendary Maus. Now players have over 200 models of armoured vehicles to play with. The amount of aircraft - already the largest number in any flight sim - has also increased and exceeded 450 models. 

Combat in War Thunder has become even more realistic. Ground vehicles now perform differently on different types of surface, the driver's view has been added as well as the commander’s binoculars. Operating cockpits have been added for the majority of aircraft along with contrails and the damage model system has been improved.

“We are grateful to all our players, to those who have been with us from the very beginning and those who has joined us more recently. Their ideas and suggestions and the passion with which they discuss the game always inspires us. The project is growing and developing and we are happy that our work meets the expectations and hopes of our pilots and tankers. Thank you and, as usual, we will see you in battle!”, says Kirill Yudintsev, Creative Director of Gaijin Entertainment.

To celebrate the Anniversary there will be a unique game event called '100' in War Thunder this weekend. Team battles with tanks and aircraft of the first rank will take place in the skies above Khalkhin Gol and on the Poland map.

Also, there will be a 50% discount for the most popular products which will be active throughout the weekend. 

Besides all these and more, which you can read in its entirety in the list below, there will be events devoted to Halloween with the exclusive Po-2 night bomber as the main prize. This aircraft was the one that was flown by the women of the famous 46th Taman night bombing regiment whom the Germans called “Night Witches”. You will be able to receive the aircraft by destroying ground targets. The players will also be able to fly this legendary biplane in the Witch Hunt night races.

Without further ado, we are very pleased to present to you this year's Anniversary specials. See you on the battlefield!
