Q: How much time do I have to upgrade the shop?
: You have one month to upgrade your shop, after that the progress halts and you have 1 more week to earn more warbonds and spend them in the upgraded shop - during this week you will have items from both shops available and you can choose whether you want to earn some more warbonds and use them for the upgraded shop, or keep them and start upgrading the new shop. However this time the shop upgrade is available from September 25th to October 31st - more than one month.

: No the tasks will remain active and once you complete it you will earn a medal for the new shop.

Q: Will Special tasks count for the shop progress?

Ki-100-II

  The Japanese Kawasaki Ki-100 was the most recent development of the Ki-61 line of military fighters. Its twin brother - the Ki-100-II was further development attempt to introduce high-altitude interceptor equipped with a supercharger capable of intercepting enemy bombers at a great altitude. Based on the series-produced Ki-100-Ib, by August 1945 three Ki-100-IIs were built with turbochargers and a methanol injection system for WEP. These were the most modern aircraft of their type. Because of the end of the war, these planes did not go into large-scale series production.

Neubaufahrzeug

 
The German take on the multi-turret layout, the Neubaufahrzeug packs more of a punch than its British counterpart, with a combined 75mm and a coxal 37mm mounted within its primary turret as well as two machine gun turrets, mounted front and rear. This German multi-turret terror is a classic example of German efficiency and superb engineering!
