Meet Armour Breaking Ambusher, the 12th season of Battle Pass
Download Wallpaper:

For many types of vehicles that aren't equipped with super sturdy armour, attacks from the flank and ambushes are one of the main ways to achieve victory. The SPz 12-3 LGS, the main prize of the new War Thunder Battle Pass season, is one of such vehicles — and that's why this season is called “Armour Breaking Ambusher”!

Note: from season 12 onwards, Battle tasks and some battle pass challenges can be completed in Air or Ground SB!

To receive Battle Pass rewards, you need to regularly log into the game and complete tasks and challenges. Each level of Battle Pass will earn you a prize, be it a player icon, a loading screen, a title, decals, decorations, or new premium vehicles!

July 26th — October 25th

Season awards

Every season there’s a new set of awards. See the full list in the Battle Pass tab in the hangar, or check out our wiki. Here are the key awards for season 12:

A German S-38 series torpedo boat that received updated armament of a pair of 40mm Bofors auto cannons, new torpedo equipment and a navigational radar in Italian service. Its excellent speed and handling allow it to easily perform torpedo attacks, capture points and manoeuvre among islands and rocks.

A carrier-based torpedo bomber with a new experimental Homare 23 engine. A fast and agile aircraft for its class, made even better thanks to a more powerful engine, it is very comfortable to carry out dive or level bombing.

APC SPz 12-3 (SPz lg) equipped with an American M40A1 106 mm recoilless cannon with HEAT rounds. It handles off-road and low hills with ease and pierce through defences of most tanks — it's a real Armour Breaking Ambusher!

  • Mechanised Infantry Regiment insignia
  • Emblem of the 5th Infantry Regiment
  • Emblem of the 112th Mechanised Infantry Division
  • Emblem of the Royal 22nd Regiment
  • Easel machine gun (China) (tank
  • Raid backpack (tank)

  • Bundeswehr infantryman
