Dear friends!

At 7:00 GMT on the 5th of July the servers will not be available due to short-term technical works.

In case resolution of the implementation takes longer than anticipated, premium account time will be compensated.

Sorry for any inconvenience and thanks for your understanding.


On July 4th, 1776, thirteen British colonies in North America declared their independence and formed a new nation — the United States of America. The Declaration of Independence that declared equality of all people under the law has become one of the most important documents in history.

From July 4th (11:00 GMT) until July 7th (9:00 GMT)

Play 3 battles using American vehicles (rank III or higher, with an activity of not less than 70%) to receive the “US Independence Day” decal.

During high server traffic times/adequate people in the queues, you are right- it likely does not help significantly, if at all.

Simple as that. What is so hard about that Gaijin? Can't think of any ideas?

> Some spawns have the ability to shoot into the map as well as be shot into from the map. Basically means that if you have a super-high penetration gun, AP(FS)DS, or HEAT(FS), you have no large incentive to leave the spawn, basically just sit there, know the range to certain spots, dunk on people for profit.

> SPAA is now invincible.

> Said 'campers' can literally jut wait for you to drive 0,00001 meter out of spawn, you die.

Yes, "simple".


The issue here is that there will always be a "Next best thing", and honestly.... there's lots of hard cover that protects people who are looking into spawns, and people in the spawns cannot see through... Read more

A few premium ships are +1200% SL (yes, w/ premium account, ~0,10$ a day, cheaper than any 'nearby competitors' rates)...

Even if you want nothing to do with premium account or premium vehicles... There are lots of things that you can do to make money. Playing lower BR's, playing in a squad, even PvE can give decent SLs.

You probably have a stash of orders for like... antimech, whatever that will give you even more SL for ground-pounding, and some wagers are incredibly easy to perform if you are aware of the OP lineups.

If I had to guess, an early T-34 with lousy penetration, against Pz IV 7,5 that is just going to be a tack driver through the front of T-34.

Honestly.... This really doesn't mean a whole lot. Of the handful of games I've watched of WoT and played..... there is really not a whole lot of comparison. WT is not "The perfect simulator", but compared to WoT, it is far more realistic in terms of how damage is applied.

War Thunder is not, "Congratulations, you've penetrated the target, now roll the dice for how much damage you're going to do!", where penetration is king (Or, at least, that's how I recall WoT; maybe it has changed).

As a new player, in the early tiers, if you're not using APHE/APCBC (WITH FILLER, British APCBC doe... Read more

The BTR-ZD is a light Soviet self-propelled anti-aircraft unit, developed as a makeshift solution based on the design of the BTR-D airborne APC. Coming soon as part of the next major War Thunder update, Danger Zone, the BTR-ZD will join the battle and provide capable air defense for the mid rank units of the Soviet ground forces tree!

Briefly: A compact Soviet SPAAG, featuring excellent mobility and fast-firing 23mm cannons.

TLDR, that^. Essentially the same philosophy with the E-100 and Maus.

There are quite a few other tanks, albeit quite a bit less prominent, that pretty much need to be played the same way (Like the French B1's, early Churchills (imo), etc.

This June marks the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Midway, a turning point of the war in the Pacific during WWII. Japanese forces planned to catch the Americans by surprise, but the Japanese naval code was deciphered, and this allowed US troops to properly prepare and triumph in battle.

From June 3rd (11:00 GMT) till June 6th (07:00 GMT) play 3 battles in American or Japanese vehicles (rank III and above, activity 70% or more) to achieve the “Battle of Midway” decal.



The decal can be found in the customization menu, section “Other”.

If you have the documentation to show something is modeled incorrectly, please make a specific bug report.

Developers cannot do very much with "Russian HE isn't working, please fix"..

If you're strictly F2P, the way you're going to earn lions is paying attention to repair costs, playing conservatively, and paying attention to what the vehicle SL multipliers are.

IF your playstyle is rushing and playing whatever (ie, not paying attention to repair costs) or using more expensive ammunition and not ensuring that your shots are connecting... you will lose money.

To my experience, I have 99.99% of time favored APFSDS over HEATFS....

For me, APDS vs HEATFS is more circumstantial, but I tend to lean to APDS even then, (1) for velocity, and (2) sometimes my shot placement is kind of off, and the heatfs hits something spaced and has no effect at all.

HEATFS works really good from like.... 5.3-7.0 though, IMO.
