Good day mates. January 26th is Australia’s national day!

This day is celebrated with concerts, festivals and awards for the year’s most outstanding Australians.

Discounts and the Boomerang Mk.II is available for Golden Eagles!

When: From January 26th (13:00 GMT) until January 29th (13:00 GMT).

Where: Great Britain > Aviation/Army > Premium vehicles.

  • The Boomerang Mk.II is only available to purchase if you already own the Boomerang Mk.I, and the Boomerang Mk.I and A.C.IV are available at a 25% discount!

About this aircraft

The Boomerang Mk.II is an excellent aircraft for ‘turn’ dogfights: although it’s not very fast, in terms of maneuverability, few aircraft at its rank can compete with it. Its 20 mm Hispano cannons have a modest amount of ammo, but its 7.7 mm Browning machine guns have 1,000 rounds of ammunition per barrel. In addition to this, the Boomerang Mk.II can carry 2 x 250 lb bombs for attacking ground targets. Devastating!


About this tank

The A.C.IV features a 76 mm 17-pounder cannon that is capable of firing AP, APC and the great APCBC shell. This coupled with its 48 km/h speed allows it to give good account in battles and take out most opponents, making it a fantastic all-rounder Australian tank!
