War Thunder is gearing up to celebrate the 72nd anniversary of Victory Day in style, with a four-week long event that lets players take part in some of World War 2's most iconic battles.
The event covers both land and air, and runs until May 10. It starts with two historical events - the invasion of the Soviet Union by Germany, and the attack on Pearly Harbour by Japan, in 1941. Over four weeks battles will rage across Africa, the Pacific, and Europe, and the more you fight, the more chances you have to unlock decorations, and four unique premium vehicles -
- The U.S. PV-2D attack aircraft
- a Soviet version of the British Matilda tank equipped with a 76mm F-96 cannon
- the British heavy assault tank A33 Excelsior
- an anti-tank modification of the Soviet Yak-3T fighter
