War Thunder update celebrates Victory Day’s 70th anniversary

    
11
As we near the 70th anniversary of World War II’s Victory in Europe Day, War Thunder figured that it would be a good time to pump out a massive update to mark the occasion. Today Gaijin Entertainment unleashed the Weapons of Victory 1.70.1945 update, which contains a whopping 40 new vehicles and three additional theater maps.

With the patch, players can hop into war machines like the UK’s Sea Gladiator plane and the T34 Sherman “Calliope” rocket-launching tank, and fight on new maps such as Normandy and Reichstag. There are even a half-dozen historical fighter planes that are waiting to tell players stories about the pilots who once flew them.

The update also added improved materials for its vehicles that allow the game to accurately display battle damage. Finally, there are new tournament events coming for the best pilots and commanders to undertake. You can watch a dev diary on the update after the break!

Ghostmourn As of now, just Tanks and Aircraft. I heard somewhere they don’t plan on adding infantry because they didn’t want it to become a Mature game.

melissamcdon Oh boy, that was one loaded statement…

I’m just bummed cause of course my joystick crapped out last week. Whatever I pick up to replace it will be my 3rd since open beta. Almost time to re-up on premium account too!

Is it just me or do 7.7mm guns can actually kill stuff now thanks to the new damage model?

melissamcdon There are lot of ironies, even some in your editorial note. For example, isn’t it ironic the degree to which countries spy on their own citizens, etc., especially the ones that proclaim freedom the loudest. Also, the concept of “mercy” in geo-politics and the context of the Cold War could be seen as naive. But this isn’t really the forum to discuss it. Don’t take my word for it. You can read Kissinger. 

I don’t necessarily espouse his views, but he is more accessible on the topic for those educated in the US.  http://www.amazon.com/World-Order-Henry-Kissinger/dp/0143127713/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1430431265&sr=1-2&keywords=world+order+kissinger+paperback

Happy reading.

I really wanna try this with the Oculus Rift or better yet, something actually commercially available and not just a dev kit…
