How can you get premium vehicles? Warbonds!


Pilots and Tankers,

Another month comes to a close as well as the end of the year. As War Thunder pilots and tankers are already participating in various winter holidays activities and events, we couldn't forget some new items in the Warbonds shop! January will bring completely new vehicles, that have never been available in the warbonds shop before.


In order to receive them, just complete daily Battle tasks in War Thunder battles and earn a special currency - “Warbonds”, which can be used to purchase vehicles previously only obtainable with Golden Eagles!

 

Three of the five available vehicles:


 A1E1 Independent 

From the nation that originally created the tank, comes the British multi-turret A1E1 that fathered almost all multi-turret tank designs of the period. An inter-war design, the Independent bares many of the classical WW1 style tank philosophies into its design, whilst also offering new possibilities. This iron “landship” will be sure to strike fear into the hearts of all who see this beast advancing towards them!


 P-51D-10

The ever famous P-51D is a staple tier IV American fighter aircraft, this time adorned with the markings of Ray S. Wetmore’s “Daddy’s Girl”. This unique premium version of the P-51 is the D-10 variant, similar to its researchable D-5 counterpart, in that it can equip HVAR and M8 rockets, as well as 100, 250, 500 and even 1000lb bombs. This American icon is armed with the standard 6 x 12.7mm 50.cal M2 Browning machine guns, making it a formidable foe to targets both in the skies and on the ground. 


 Neubaufahrzeug

The German take on the multi-turret layout, the Neubaufahrzeug packs more of a punch than its British predecessor, with a combined 75mm and a coxal 37mm mounted within its primary turret as well as two machine gun turrets, mounted front and rear. This German multi-turret terror is a classic example of German efficiency and superb engineering!


You can get these machines just by playing!

The current war bonds will not be removed immediately at this time, you will still be able to use them only until the 7th of January for the purchase of some goods in the war bond shop.

Battle tasks - these individual tasks bring variety into the game and prevent situations when all the players in a battle try to complete one specific task ignoring mission objectives needed for a victory. They are available for players that have reached the 3rd rank of any nation. For completion, the player will receive Silver Lions and Warbonds , a special in-game currency with their own shop where you can purchase a lot of different items.

Enjoy the new items available and see you on the battlefield!
