Squadron events - is a special mode, where only squadrons are permitted to fight. They take place in 8 vs 8 battle format in three different game modes. This article will introduce this mode to you, as well as give you an insight into its future development.

Undoubtedly, squadron battles will be a popular mode for those squadrons which have more interests than community and the ideological views of the players. Firstly this is an opportunity to show themselves to other powerful teams and communities, to demonstrate not only a high level of the professionalism of each player, but also of the whole squadron. Also, the best players will get fantastic rewards! Duel rating is a logical approach in the project evolution and we have no doubt that our players, for whom War Thunder is more like a competition and a cybersport, will increase their popularity and earn more respect from the community!

Happy Easter! On the occasion, where Easter falls for both East and West on the same date, from April 19th 06:00 GMT until April 22nd 06:00 GMT the War Thunder Team is happy to give our players a 30% discount on selected tank packs:

M4A2 Sherman - Starter Pack, T-34 - Advanced Pack, M4A2 Sherman - Advanced Pack, T-34 and M4A2 Sherman - Advanced Pack.

And x4 RP gain bonus for the first victory for all nations

In the West. Why do we give eggs at Easter?

Easter is a Christian festival. For Christians the custom of giving eggs at Easter celebrates new life. It is a time where many follow the gift giving regardless of religious roots.

The first eggs given at Easter were birds eggs. These eggs were painted in bright colours to give them further meaning as a gift. We still paint bird eggs today but usually only chicken eggs.

An Anglo-Saxon legend - the Easter bunny and eggs

An Anglo-Saxon legend tells how the Saxon goddess “Eostre” found a wounded bird and transformed it into a hare (not a bunny), so that it could survive the Winter. The hare found it could lay eggs, so it decorated these each Spring and left them as offerings to the goddess that saved it’s life.

Similarly, but perhaps more seriously, Easter in Russia is one of the most important Russian holidays in the calendar. The Russian Orthodox Church celebrates Easter according to the Orthodox calendar, and it can occur in April or May. Like many countries in Eastern Europe, Russians celebrate Easter with decorated eggs and special foods and customs.

The Russian Easter egg tradition dates back to pre-Christian times when people saw eggs as fertility symbols and as devices of protection. When Orthodoxy was adopted, eggs took on Christian symbolism.

As for these two Easter decals - right now you can use War Thunder CDK to decorate your own vehicle camo designs with them!

Also, we would like to convey our best wishes to you all and hope you enjoy a peaceful and happy time over the weekend.

Happy Easter!

Let’s create War Thunder encyclopedia together!

Today we are launching the War Thunder Wiki - the basic platform for players’ and developers’ common effort to create articles about basic game systems, instructions to create user generated content and of course detailed descriptions of air and ground vehicles. Please note that the technical characteristics of aircraft and tanks are updated automatically to stay in line with the latest version of the game.

We encourage the players to collaborate on the Wiki. If you have information to share, just find an appropriate page, press the “Edit” button, add content and wait for editors to approve the changes. It’s easy and fun!
