Summer Landing Event Brings Six New Rare Military Vehicles to War Thunder.
Developers Gaijin Entertainment announced the Summer Landing event for the military online action War Thunder. You will get the chance to play with six brand-new military vehicles. Finnish VL Myrsky II fighter plane, Japanese amphibious Type 3 Ka-Chi tank, Italian destroyer RN Aviere, British carrier-based Buccaneer S.1 attack jet, Russian BMD-4 airborne combat vehicle, German Type 143 Bussard patrol boat, as well as unique decals and decorations honoring airborne and marine troops.
New and veteran players of War Thunder are absolutely going to love what’s available. Six brand new vehicles with a rich history behind each one. The Myrsky II aircraft, created by Finnish designers and produced locally just before World War II. The Ka-Chi tank, with pontoons attached, gives an impression of a patrol boat that somehow found itself crawling over the land. The amphibious vehicle moves through water using two propellers at the rear.
The RN Aviere destroyer is known to military history fans because of the Battle at Cape Passero where it bravely attacked the cruiser HMS Ajax. The Buccaneer S.1 was the first serial version of the Blackburn Buccaneer family of jets. Unlike later modifications, this one focused solely on attacking ground and naval targets. The Type 143 Bussard – a sister ship to the Albatros patrol boat well known to War Thunder players, but this one also boasts machine gun placements that help greatly against airborne enemies.
The BMD-4 airborne combat vehicle will probably be the one that gets most players’ attention. Adopted by the Russian army in 2004 it has a great 100mm rifled cannon, that is also a launcher for ATGM. Also coming will be vehicles from the BMD family in the regular tech tree. If this doesn’t get you pumped up for some wartime action then I don’t know what will.
