US Air Force Birthday

World War II proved air superiority to be crucial, so on September 18th, 1947 US Air Force became a separate branch of the country’s armed forces. Today it’s the largest air force in the world with more than 320 000 troops, 5 000 aircraft and 400 ICBMs.

From September 16th (13:00 GMT) until September 19th (7:00 GMT), play 3 battles using American aircraft (rank III or higher, with an activity of not less than 70%) to receive the “Lieutenant America” decal.

Complete the task in random battles, except for Enduring Confrontation missions and [Assault] mode. Track your progress in the hangar by clicking Nickname → Achievements → Holidays → US Air Force Birthday.

“Lieutenant America” decal

You can find the decal in the “Holidays” tab in the Customisation menu.

During the event two premium aircraft from the US research tree — George Bostwick's P-47M-1-RE and Raymond Wetmore's P-51D-10 — will be made available for purchase for Golden Eagles.
