All weather stations report an approach of a hot War Thunder marathon! Don’t miss the opportunity to get premium and event vehicles and other prizes. Such a hot S.U.M.M.E.R. is difficult to miss!


The German Ar 196 A-3 hydroplane, one of the best naval scouts in history, nicknamed "the eyes of the Kriegsmarine"! The Ar 196 A-3 has every chance of becoming the new “king of the sandpit”: it is armed with a pair of 20mm MG FF cannons and an MG 17 rifle caliber machine gun, it can also carry 2x50 kg bombs under its wings. 

The Ar 196 A-3 also has a defensive turret with a 7.92mm machine gun, which is quite good in the initial ranks. And of course, just like the other hydroplanes in the game, the Ar 196 A-3 is able to capture control points in naval battles. 

We are especially pleased to announce that this fancy plane was created for you by your fellow players. Vitaly "NovA29R" Vostokov worked on the aircraft model, and Daniil "Joy_Division__" Zaitsev created the Ar 196 A-3 cockpit.
