Right now, players get the opportunity to unlock four rare vehicles for free. Which is playable on Linux, Mac and Windows via #Steam. Since this yearly Summer Event series allows you to try out five Destroyer-class warships. And all in the Naval Forces mode.

Gaijin Entertainment just announced a massive expansion to the Naval Forces for action MMO #WarThunder. So now, each of the #games five fleets represented in the games most recent game mode. Now feature their own Destroyers. These include the 1936-class Z20 Karl Galster for Germany and the Tribal-class for Britain. While also including the 7-U-class for the USSR and the Fletcher-class for the USA and Yugumo-class for Japan. So get out there, try all of them in an upcoming Naval Forces testing weekend. The Summer Event is here!!


The first Naval Battles in War Thunder featuring destroyers were received with overwhelmingly positive feedback. So now, Naval Battles feature three different types of vehicles. These are aircraft, torpedo boats and destroyers. Since each allows the player to perfectly adapt their choice of vehicle. Depending on the current situation on the battlefield via Linux, Mac or Windows.

Equipped with the games largest-caliber weapons currently available in Naval Forces. Destroyers can engage opponents over extreme distances. Even up to the opposite end of the map. To defend themselves from torpedo boats and attacking aircraft. They employ a large variety of lower-caliber automatic machine guns and cannons. The War Thunder comprehensive, realistic damage model of Destroyers will allow virtual captains to truly feel ‘at the helm’. Since this is a sizeable warship, requiring them to quickly make important tactical decisions. While the captain himself directs the fire of the main cannons. So they can decide who are the priority targets for the crew manning the secondary armament. Or which sections of the ship to focus on during repairs. In combat, time is of the essence. As damaged destroyers become a prime target for both torpedo boats and bombers.

For those keen to get early access to the regular testing sessions of ship combat. War Thunder you can make your voice heard in the development process. More information is available on Steam or here.


So July 28th saw the start of Operation S.U.M.M.E.R. for War Thunder. A month-long series of rewarding in-game activities. The two ground vehicles up for grabs this year are the Type 65. The powerful Chinese Anti-Aircraft modification of the famous T-34 medium tank for the Soviet tree. The German Sd.Kfz. 234/4 “Pakwagen”, a heavy armored car equipped with a 75mm cannon. Virtual pilots will be able to take off in two new monoplane fighter aircraft. The P-43A-1 Lancer for the USA and the Ki-94-II for Japan. Further detailed information on the event and a daily updated calendar will be available on the official website.

War Thunder can be downloaded Free via Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows. Personally, I have not played the Naval Forces yet. So if someone wants to throw some feedback in a comment below, by all means.
