On January 26th, 1788, the British First Fleet landed at Sydney Cove, proclaiming British sovereignty over New South Wales and the founding of Sydney. Nowadays January 26th is the main state holiday — Australia Day. Congratulations to all our Australian players!

From January 26th (10:00 GMT) until January 30th (07:00 GMT), play 3 battles using British vehicles (rank III or higher, with an activity of not less than 70%) to receive the “Ranger Kangaroo” 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 → Australia Day.

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