Latest from the War Thunder SubReddit

NOTAM: Today is the day to embrace your inner -aboo Event: Space Race Space Thunder Tankers shaking of excitement rn You better pay attention to that map Since we are about to get another member of the puma family I thought I'd make this Black skin but with quotes from the forums about why Panzergrau isn't darker like it is irl I went to Kubinka tank museum 2 months ago and saw the 279 in person, also saw the Maus and much more, would def recommend going if you're ever in Russia. Sorry not the highest quality. Just wondering if those poor souls know this is a skin, not the vehicle slight bruh moment that happened earlier playing my first war thunder game in two years.  

Latest Steam Announcements for War Thunder

 


Now simulation mode on consoles will become as comfortable as arcade mode

Gaijin Entertainment announces the start of the production of War Thunder Controller – the unique device compatible with all major gaming platforms.


One single War Thunder Controller can be used for ground vehicles, ships, jets, helicopters as well as any future types of military hardware. There will be no need to switch between four different control devices right in the middle of a gameplay session, not anymore. Players will easily hop from one vehicle to another using the War Thunder Controller only.

Previously PC players at least had the option of manually building a complicated setup of several control devices to fight both on ground and in the skies in one battle. But console players will unlock the full potential of simulation mode in War Thunder for the very first time. The experience of driving historically accurate vehicles into battle will now be available on all platforms – and without compromising the level of realism.

The air, the land and the oceans have already been subdued by you so now it is time to look to space! A forgotten vehicle from the time of the first space arms race - the Soviet heavy “lunar rover” Object 279 has been found on the Moon! Some nations are willing to generously reward explorers even for separate parts of this vehicle.

From 13:00 GMT on the 1st of April till 11:00 GMT on the 13th of April

Assemble space rockets from the materials obtained in battles and deliver on them parts of the Object 279 heavy tank from the Moon. Exchange them for premium vehicles or assemble your own “lunar rover”.


How to participate

The whole assembly process and the receiving of rewards will take place in the hangar menu “Workshop ? Space Race”.

In “Space Race” you are assembling rockets to transport the parts of the Object 279. Assembling and launching of the rocket will be done in 3 stages in the menu “Assembly Scheme”: from basic raw materials up to rocket components and its launch.

Participate in battles in the main game modes and get all you require for the assembly of rocket components!

Container with raw materials - Raw materials for assembly: For each 10 minutes spent in battle (in a vehicle of rank II and above and with an in-game activity of 50% or higher). Contains from 7 to 9 units of raw materials and 10% chance for random material.

Oxidizer and Fuel - For refueling and launching: For each 10 minutes spent in battle (in a vehicle of rank II and above and with in-game activity of 50% or higher). You will get 1 fuel and 1 oxidizer.

Scientific data - To speed up the flight: For first place at the end of a battle. Will be given only 1 article with scientific data. They will be gathered in the collections of scientific data that can increase the flight speed of the rocket.

The Neustrashimy destroyer opens up new horizons for naval battles in the USSR’s naval tech tree. It is a next-generation ship, in relation to the Soviet destroyers already present in the game.

The premium Neustrashimy is a next-generation ship in the Soviet lineup, even in relation to its contemporary, the Project 30 Ognevoy. Firstly, in terms of its displacement, it is roughly on a par with the domestic leaders of pre-war construction. Secondly, it exceeds the latter in the size of the crew. And, of course, its weaponry leaves the competitors far behind.

The 130mm primary armament became all-purpose. They are mounted on stabilized SM-2-1 turrets with a high automation level, which even allows using them to their full potential as long-range air defence.





Enemy bombers will have a tough time attacking the Neustrashimy, since they will first encounter the primary armament gunfire and then fire from four quadruple 45 mm SM-20-ZiF units.
