Meet Armour Breaking Ambusher, the 12th season of Battle Pass
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”!

Hunter FGA.9 Celebrates the Anniversary of its First Flight
On July 20th, 1951, the Hawker Hunter jet fighter took to the skies for the first time. Thanks to its speed, reliability and easy maintenance it quickly became a favorite of pilots across the world: over 20 countries used Hunters, while Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia) still employs them in its air force today.
MBT-70: Tank from the future
By the mid 1950s, the USSR became a behemoth of tank construction. Countries of the socialist bloc operated tens of thousands of cheap and effective T-34s, T-54s and T-55s. As suggested by US Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, the US entered into a special agreement with West Germany to launch a joint project to create a true tank of the future, known as the MBT-70 in the US and the KpZ-70 in Germany.

A Decal and Two Aircraft for Bastille Day
On July 14th, 1789, Parisians stormed the Bastille — a prison fortress that became one of the symbols of French absolute monarchy. Since 1880 this date has been celebrated as the main national holiday in France, with an annual military parade held on Champs-Élysées, one of the oldest and largest in the entire world.
Book of Records: German Aircraft
The German tech tree is one of the largest in all of War Thunder. Germans started building aircraft at the very beginning of the 20th century, and their industry has a very rich and turbulent history. At one point, there was even a split into two major warring camps! Today, though, we are here to celebrate the best designs that Germany has to offer: the fastest, the most agile... and most historically important aircraft!
