Hello everyone, got a big post for you today now that I have internet set up in my temporary accommodation. Today I have a devblogs covering all 3 dimensions: Land, Air and Water. To start off with I’ll cover the latest revelation for Ground Forces
For all you ground forces fans, we have been given the preview of the next Ran VII tank which belongs to the Soviet tech tree, the T-80U. This variant is an up-armoured variant of the T-80 which, when equipped with Kontakt-5, has an armour value of 620mm against kinetic rounds and 1000mm against chemical rounds. This will make it one of the best-armoured tanks in the game and a tough target to play against.

Today we have some news for all you Germany fans out there. War Thunder has announced the first supersonic jet for the German tech tree: the MiG-19S, the upgraded variant of the MiG-19PT we have in-game currently. This plane offers improved speed and an increase in main armament calibre over the MiG-19PT. However, this plane will not come with an air to air missile capability which will be a disappointment to some players. Without further ado, let’s dive into its full specifications.

Hello everyone, today is a good day for War Thunder news as we have been given another devblog. Today’s sneak peek is a new Fleet Air Arm addition to the British Aviation tree in the form of the Sea Hawk FGA.6, a ground attack variant of the Hawker Sea Hawk that was introduced to the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm in 1953. A mighty fine looking aircraft, it will come in at Rank V and give the British Tree a decent ground attack that it has been missing for some time.

Good day everyone, some big WT news today: Tier VII is coming to War Thunder Ground Forces and the vanguard of this news is the British Challenger 2 MBT. For the Challenger 2, we are told to expect a vehicle similar to the Challenger 1 but with much-upgraded armour and armament. The armament consists of an L30 120mm cannon armed with improved ammunition compared to the L11 and the armour focuses on the turret which receives a decent level of protection: up to 500mm for kinetic and 900mm for HEAT. It should be noted however that the lower glacis remains a glaring weak spot for the tank, relegating it to second-line duties similar to the Challenger 1.
