The BTD-1 Destroyer was designed to replace some of the more aging and vulnerable types of Torpedo and Dive bomber in service with the United States Navy. Combining both roles into one, this multirole aircraft could almost be seen as a precursor to the legendary Skyraider also built by the Douglas  Aircraft Company. Quite a departure from the aircraft it was intended to replace, the BTD has a sizeable payload, a pair of 20mm cannons and a very respectable top speed for a Naval Bomber. Sporting a tricycle undercarriage, gull wings and a larger cockpit area, the Destroyer has a menacing and aggressive demeanor that it certainly delivers upon. Pilots can make use of the BTD’s wide array of weaponry and armaments across any situation it may face, against air, land and sea targets, coupled with its excellent maneuverability, this truly is a versatile and universal American strike aircraft. Don't miss your chance to obtain this exceptional aircraft!


The Soviet multi-turret behemoth, SMK, was intended to improve upon the T-35’s design with a more modern and capable design to address the armour protection and firepower concerns with the previous designs. The unique SMK had two turrets, housing 76mm and 45mm cannons, was also developed as a single turret tank which featured only the 76mm cannon turret. Thus infamous KV-1 was born from the foundations of the SMK. Both the SMK, KV-1 and T-100 all saw operational service trials during 1939 in combat against Finland. Ultimately the KV-1 was selected for production, however now you too can earn this truly unique Soviet Heavy tank! The features of this tank will be well known to KV-1 commanders, however with the added bonus of a separate turret mounting a fast firing 45mm 20-K cannon found on many of the Soviet Light tanks.  Charge from the front lines and add this Soviet Multi-Turret Heavy to your collection!


You can get these machines just by playing!
