A little more about premium vehicles available in-store during April:

Il-2 (1942) (Germany) - A legendary attacker in the German research tree. This aircraft may hold a different livery, but it still maintains the same amount of power. Two VYa-23 cannons, which are able to destroy light armoured vehicles. When this armament goes against enemy fighters, and keeping in mind  its flight characteristics while turning and at low speeds, you can rely on a positive outcome. The bomb armament is also present, which is a really pleasant surprise for a captured vehicle. Its Half tonne of explosives is just one of many strong argument in favor of the “flying tank”.

Ki-43-II Hayabusa (USA) - Another metaphorical “gift” from Japan. “Nothing happens by chance”, how else could it be explained that an aircraft, which was created with such an  emphasis on speed, suddenly fell into the hands of an enemy with so much respect of that speed? The Hayabusa is armed with two Ho-103 (Type 1) machineguns. Although that may seem underwhelming, it is important to keep in mind that this weaponry was developed from the Browning M1921 machinegun, and in view of its low battle rank, is really something! This is an especially good armament for advanced players. The inherent flexibility of this aircraft is the same as its original Japanese brother, but don’t forget to use the flaps!

These two captured premium vehicles can be attained just by playing!
Join in and accomplish the battle tasks and you will unlock these premium vehicles through victory!!
