[Development] GMC CCKW 353: A deuce-and-a-half. And a gun.



A legendary GMC truck chassis equipped with an automatic 40mm caliber Bofors cannon is a French recipe for a powerful, adaptable anti-aircraft gun—and it will roll into War Thunder accompanied by some all new French tanks in War Thunder update 1.75!

Nicknamed the “Deuce-and-a-half” by the U.S. army, the American 2.5 ton triple-axle 6x6 made by GMC is a true army workhorse. GMC trucks were vital to supplying and equipping allies after land operations began in Europe, and more than 560 thousand of these trucks were produced during World War II. They proved invaluable to supply lines and the battlefield. The GMC CCKW 353 was a combat model of the famous truck equipped with a 40mm anti-aircraft gun and used by the French in WWII.

In War Thunder, the self-propelled anti-air GMC CCKW 353 with the Bofors cannon occupies the medium ranks of the French armor tech tree. The vehicle has no armor, so its role on the battlefield is solely to support allies. The CCKW 353 commander has two types of ammunition available: a tracer, high-explosive fragmenting round perfectly suited for destroying airplanes, and a solid armor-piercing tracer round capable of destroying enemy tanks and armored vehicles.



In addition to this adaptable, French anti-air platform, we are pleased to present some new, French tankman model specially created for the new French ground vehicles coming in War Thunder update 1.75. See you there!

[Development] New opportunities for light vehicles!



Thin armour, weaker guns and a limited crew is no longer an excuse! The most vulnerable vehicles will now have much more opportunity to turn the tide of battle or gain more rewards!

We plan to add several key features for the lightly armoured vehicles at ranks II-VI, these will not only bring more tactical diversity but will also allow them to be on par with other vehicle types and significantly improve teamwork in War Thunder.

Active scouting
The first feature for the above types of vehicles is “active scouting”. From now on your low calibre gun is no excuse for retreating - scout the enemy positions and pass the info to your allies - you will receive a decent reward.

More useful features
There is one extremely important feature for these light vehicles - they can provide repairs for every member in the team even if they are not in their squad. So if you are playing a heavy tank - select the “Repairing!” short message. Even if your current vehicle doesn't have a repair kit, your teammates may still save you!

Additional modifications
Airstrike - in Arcade this will permit the scout to join any air battle started by your teammates. This will not be limited to a fighter - you will be able to use an attacker or a bomber even though your team has already begun the battle. Your opponent will have an opportunity to add an additional fighter though.
In Realistic mode this modification will reduce SP requirements to use aircraft in combined battles.

Improved optical sights will increase the spotting distance by 30% in all modes.
