Capture yourself a Churchill - with Warbonds!
Pilots and tankers, we now have new offers for you in the renewed “Warbonds” shop. The beginning of the new month will give you access to new premium vehicles which will be available for the completion of battle tasks.
In order to receive them, just complete daily Battle tasks in War Thunder battles and earn a special currency - “Warbonds”, which can be used to purchase vehicles previously only obtainable with Golden Eagles!
The current war bonds will not be removed immediately at this time, you will still be able to use them only until the 7th of May for the purchase of some goods in the war bond shop.
5 different premium vehicles from different nations will be available in the “Warbonds” shop.
Two of the five available vehicles:
Hurricane Mk.IIB (USSR) - The most widely produced British fighter which has been introduced in the Russian tree. “Another aircraft of one nation in another's!” - You believe so? But this aircraft is now in the Ssoviet tree, and that means that the Soviet mechanics have been busy making it their own! Only machine guns? Now the vehicle has two 20 mm ShVAK cannons and two 12.7 mm machine guns. An aircraft of the second rank that ensures you won’t be afraid of head on attacks.
Kpfpz. Churchill (Germany) - What is a Churchill? It’s kind of slow, big, well-armoured tank with a pretty good turret. One word - epic. It perfectly describes the majority of German heavy tanks and therefore has earned the right to be amongst them. Apparently, this is what the Germans believed when starting to use this captured vehicle. But it is already familiar to us as the British Churchill, which once sent fear to all fans of German vehicles, it can effortlessly shrug of an enemy's attack against its frontal armour. Now just imagine how this armour will frustrate the Soviet forces. This is the German captured Churchill!

Battle tasks - these individual tasks bring variety into the gameplay and prevent situations when all the players in a battle try to complete one specific task ignoring mission objectives needed for a victory. They are available for players that have reached the 3rd rank of any nation. For completion, the player will receive Silver Lions and Warbonds - special in-game currency with their own shop, where you can purchase a lot of different items.
