Protecting the Skies: Best Cold War SPAA
The Cold War era was a breakthrough time for anti-aircraft warfare. AA weapon systems started utilizing radars and other sophisticated gadgets to become even more effective at hunting down aircraft. In War Thunder, SPAA vehicles of the era are mainly found at mid to high ranks of the Ground Forces tech tree; their main responsibility is to keep the sky clean of subsonic and early supersonic aircraft. Today we’re going to talk about the most interesting of the bunch.
