The  Panzerspähwagen — a fast hunter with a deadly 75mm PaK 40 cannon; it leaves its enemies no chance of survival. Many tankers are already familiar with the Panzerspähwagen’s aggressive tactics, which in addition to its fire power, is impressive!

flag_usa.png P-43А-1 USA


The Lancer — a high altitude interceptor, a long range fighter and an extremely fast aircraft for its time, armed with 4 Browning .50 cal MGs. For the U.S.  this vehicle was a temporary decision before the P-38 appeared. It’s a good fighter without any significant disadvantages.

flag_ussr.png Type 65 AA USSR


A Т-34 based SPAA — quite a real threat for you pilots! Good maneuverability, nice armour and a favourable  pair of 37mm AA guns! This SPAA will find its place in the USSR tree.

flag_japan.png Ki-94-2 Japan


A high altitude interceptor of Japan that was designed to engage the most deadly of  American bombers – the B-29. Such an opponent would unlikely allow enemies to close in on it more than once, so the Japanese put a lot into its weaponry – 4 high caliber cannons. And, of course, a very powerful engine which allows impressive speed.

    I just want to scream, more and more the company proves that they are okay with hurting the game to make a few more euros

    this is just so wrong, there are some many other ways they could go about implementing these type of events, why waste the possibility of making tech trees with “streamined-progression” where every step feels like a natural upgrade as well as preventing the current scenario where some nations overpopulate certain BRs while no one has enough same-BR vehicles to compete against, which causes to be almost like 50/50 in top/bottom BR matches

    the least they could do is look at a aircraft/tank-series and think which variants are somewhat historically important and which are hyped and will get more players playing the game, while still thinking of gameplay first (it is simply wrong to add OPs as premiums and least efficient variants to compete against them, what we cal pay-to-win)

    if at the end there is no “quick-solution” they are still left with another option which is duplicating a vehicle with unique liveries, just take the M-18 and «Black Cat» as examples, I do not know any player in War Thunder that would say spending real money on having a extra Hellcatt in their lineup was a waste of money, be it AB or RB because even if they only differ in liveries the premium still got what should be the main reason to buy premiums, which is increased comfort in grinding SL and RP, premiums should never become things you buy to win over the opposition but unfortunatly we already see some of that in War Thunder

      Right now there is only prem vehicle in WT that i would call pay to win and that is IS-6.Even that is now easy to kill after few months,because people have learned how to kill it.
      Most of the premiums in WT are unique vehicles for countrie or premium version of tank that is already in the tech tree.
