We invite you to take part in a most unusual contest -  a contest  for the best user created mission in War Thunder! All that you need is the War Thunder CDK, bright ideas and to implement them into a game mission. You can share it with the other players and also have a chance to get a reward from the developers!

The War Thunder CDK is a Content Development Kit, a set of tools to create user generated content for War Thunder.

Contest task:

Create an interesting user mission using the WT:CDK and upload it to live.warthunder.com in the "Missions" section.

Mission should meet all technical requirements so that it can be added to the game and it should come with a key task. After completing the task, the mission will end with a victory.
