In War Thunder, Polikarpov's project will be one of the rewards for completing the tasks in the new Battle Pass season[warthunder.com]. The ITP (M-1) is an excellent mid-range fighter; it is especially good in mixed battles against armored vehicles, as well as in air battles for attacking and destroying heavy bombers. If you felt low on ammunition in the Yak-9T and lacked maneuverability in the TIS-MA, the new fighter is definitely for you!

The powerful 37mm Sh-37 cannon with 50 rounds, reinforced by a pair of 20mm ShVAKs, tears through most medium tanks and self-propelled guns based on them, when attacking from the side... Read more

The first in the line of American multirole fighters, the F-5A Freedom Fighter is entering service with Chinese pilots with the launch of the upcoming “Ixwa Strike” update.

In our game, the F-5 Freedom Fighter series appears in the “Ixwa Strike'' update with the first serialy produced modification of the F-5A in Chinese service.

The first Chinese wheeled SPG in War Thunder! The PTL02 is still in service with the Chinese PLA.

In War Thunder, the PTL02 will be the first high-ranked wheeled vehicle in the Chinese armored vehicle tech tree. A tank destroyer of this class was really missing in the rank V-VI setup: the vehicle is light-weight and lightly protected, but with a good gun.

Indeed, made on the basis of APC, PTL02 cannot protect herself against something heavier than a 12.7 mm machine gun round, and the wheeled chassis overcomes off-road somewhat worse than the tracked one. But, having taken a position behind cover, the commander has at his disposal an excellent 100 mm calibre smooth-bore gun, good shells, a stabilizer and night vision device. This wheeled Chinese vehicle copes well with the armor of early MBTs, but rank VI tanks... Read more
