Following the Roadmap: grouping vehicles, rank changes, and improvements to premium vehicles
We’re continuing to move along with our Roadmap that we released back in June. First and foremost, we’d like to start off by saying thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we progress through it. Recently, after releasing other roadmap changes, we’ve noticed your anticipation and enthusiasm about progression changes and today we’re pleased to announce that we’re ready to talk about these changes with you.
Best Soviet-style MBTs
Soviet-style main battle tanks are easily recognisable: they have a low profile, a large-caliber gun, and sturdy armor. Today we’re going to talk about the best representative of this big family of armored vehicles, from the iconic T-54 to more exotic tanks from China and Finland.

80th Anniversary of the Victory in the Battle of Kursk
August 23rd, 1943 marked the end of the Battle of Kursk — the largest tank battle in history, with around 3000 tanks from the German side and over 5000 tanks from the Soviet side. It was the first time a German offensive on the Eastern Front failed with no significant gains. The decisive victory of the Red Army led to it gaining a strategic initiative and defined the way the rest of the war was fought.
Pvkv IV: the Last Effort
The Pvkv IV is the final design of a series of experimental Swedish tank destroyers, developed in the postwar period in an effort to equip the armed forces with modern fighting vehicles. Soon, the Pvkv IV will reinforce the early ranks of the Swedish ground forces tree with its arrival as part of the next major War Thunder update!
MiG-15bis ISh returns for official service anniversary
Development of the MiG-15 jet fighter lasted throughout the entirety of 1947, while over half of 1948 was spent testing it. On August 23rd, 1948, two days before the official end of the tests, the MiG-15 officially entered service with the USSR Air Force. It prevailed against its competitor, the La-15, and became the most produced military jet aircraft in history.

Su-25: Return of Shturmoviks
The Su-25, a Soviet jet-powered CAS aircraft, was developed for roughly the same reasons as the American A-10 Thunderbolt II. After WW2, both superpowers came to the conclusion that there was no need for a dedicated ground attack aircraft anymore. After the harsh lessons of the Vietnam War, though, the US immediately revised their policy and started working on a new jet-powered attack aircraft.
