Rewards doubled for streaks while playing in squads!

Depending where you come from, in the military a small group of warriors is known by different terms, in the infantry it can be squads, platoons or fire teams. In armoured vehicles these are known as troops, platoons or sections. An air force will use a section, flight, wing or wingmen. In Navies from around the world formation, strike groups, flotillas, squadrons, task elements, it is not so easy to group ships, but wherever you come from in the world, little doubt can be shown that the effectivity of a small group of fighting units and the value they give to “an army” are undeniable. In War Thunder, these small groups are known as “squads”, they are as important to the game as they were in real life.
