The T-44 in War Thunder is an excellent armoured vehicle. Fast, with great dynamic movement and a wonderful “ricochet inducing” turret. Everything is great in this tank, its regular 85 mm gun allows it to confidently strike targets within its rank from the side and rear. It does however have issues with its frontal armour – many of its enemies have gained more than 120mm of armour thickness, which can only be penetrated with APCR shells or by aiming at any “apertures” to burst through the hull.
In the War Thunder 1.55 update, the T-44 has been introduced with its 122 mm cannon, which was mounted on the IS-2. This vehicle became the favourite of sniper tankers who used the speed of the T-44 to deliver its deadly weapon to a convenient and unexpected firing position. However, its high damage comes at the cost of an extremely long reload time for a medium tank.
War Thunder version 1.57 offers a new model of the Soviet T-44 tank with a 100mm D-10T cannon, which was installed on the older brothers of the T-44 – the top T-54 medium tanks. The cannon allows it to confidently strike almost all enemies at its rank, including, from the front, whilst at the same time it reloads significantly faster than the 122mm cannon.
The T-44-100 tank will take its place in the Soviet medium tank tech tree and will be available to research straight after the standard T-44. The in-game model of the tank differs from the version with the standard weapon in its altered gun mantlet, smaller command cupola and its DShK anti-air cannon. In accordance with the real-life T-44-100, our artists have even recreated the armour bulge on the left side of the turret which is designed to allow free operation of the breech internally, also having the observation instrument removed from the right section of the turret.
Mounted on the sides of the T-44-100 tank, 6mm applique plates have been added which provide additional protection from high-explosive ordnance, also protecting the running gear from explosions, aerial attack and artillery shells.
The tank not only allows a tanker to make quick, flanking maneuvers, but also permits acting in concert with heavy tanks for a main push: the 100mm cannon is a great reason to be brave and do some bold actions on the battlefield.
Try out the new T-44 in battle in the War Thunder 1.57 update. See you there!
Luftwaffe fans, rejoice! One of the most unusual and dangerous aircraft of WW2 - the Do.335 “Pfeil” has arrived with three modifications!
The Do.335 is the first aircraft with tandem-mounted engines in War Thunder, that’s why designing its model was a bit of a challenge for us. We believe that we did well. Both engines and both propellers are operational, the animations of the radiator shutters, the flap system and the chassis all operate correctly.
Besides the unusual look of the model itself, observers may also notice the canopy design that is uncommon for a German fighter aircraft, also the unique front undercarriage leg.
As for the vehicle performance and the aircraft’s combat characteristics, it should be noted that experimental models built by Claudius Dornier featured a superb speed in level flight (perhaps they were the fastest piston powered aircraft of WW2), a powerful armament consisting of 20mm and 30mm cannons and also its capability of carrying bombs both on the wing pods and in bomb bay.
In War Thunder, the Do.335 is represented with 3 modifications:
"War Thunder extremely easy to slip into"
Rock, Paper, Shotgun
"Most Historically Educational Way to Destroy Planes"
"With fun, exciting combat combined with plenty of customization and room for personal skill, this game is sure to be a fan favorite."
