Welcome to the War Thunder Summer Quest! This time, the event will take place in a new format: all you need to get prizes is just to earn mission points! Basically any activity in battle will get you closer to the rewards.

The number of tasks you need to complete to get the top vehicles immediately to your account is now smaller, but if you want to trade coupons on the market, you will need an additional upgrade that requires a little more effort to obtain.

For each completed task you will get a specific prize: a trophy with useful items, coupons for decals, camouflages for the event vehicles, player icons or decorations. Low ranked vehicles this time will be represented only by a tank but in future marathons we plan to alternate vehicle types for this prize.

See you on the battlefield!
