Good military vehicles aren’t only about their characteristics: they also need to be cheap to produce, easy to repair and open to serious upgrading. A perfect example of such a machine is the legendary Po-2 light bomber. This all-round great aircraft earned the love and respect of pilots 95 years ago, and now it has become famous among War Thunder players for its phenomenal capabilities when controlled by an experienced pilot. What a surprising coincidence it is, then, that Po-2 was chosen by the Organization as a platform for upgrades in Project “Overpowered”.

Create an “Overpowered” version of one of the most amazing aircraft in the game, use it as intended, and then exchange it for exclusive vehicles of different classes. A worthy aircraft deserves worthy rewards.

From September 22nd (12:00 GMT) until October 3rd (12:00 GMT)

Collect special modifications of the Po-2 and exchange them for unique vehicles!
