And of course follow our news to learn all the details about the coming update.


At Gamescom 2017 we will introduce the new major update 1.71 “New E.R.A”. The name was coined for several reasons – first, we are adding a 6th rank for tanks and invite you to test the vehicles of the Cold War and Vietnam war period. Ground vehicles in War Thunder will receive new armour types – composite and Explosive Reactive Armour. This new era in tank construction marked the switch to brand new technologies in protection against powerful HEAT rounds and missiles that could easily destroy any WW2 armour. New infantry support machines will join combat – we are ready to tell you about some of them in the next few days. Stay tuned!
