[Fleet] LCS (L)(3): Mighty Midget



In short: an American artillery vessel available in the navy closed beta test. Armed with a 76 mm cannon and an excellent set of auto cannons, her dense fire literally chews up small ships and aircraft!

Artillery support ships of the LCS (L) landing craft support class received the amusing nickname “Mighty Midget” due to the impressive firepower they could release on enemy shore fortifications.

During World War II, the American military took a big gamble on landing naval infantry and armour – the Americans used the strategy of quickly capturing coastline using landing ships in all three theaters of war. The landing ships and boats themselves had light armaments and could not fully cover their marines during landings, so the question arose about the creation of a small maneuverable gunboat with enough firepower to support naval landings against enemy infantry, lightly armoured fortifications and fire positions. The LCI (Landing Craft Infantry) designs were used as a basis, with the addition of a 76 mm gun with an armour screen, two twin 40 mm cannons and four twin 20 mm machine guns.





Your Mighty Midget is waiting for you in the dock, commander! The closed beta test is just around the corner!

[Fleet] [Development] USS Trenton: The Royal Rescuer



Interesting: The ship were used to carry the royal family of Luxembourg, who had escaped from Nazi occupation in their country.

USS Trenton is one of the ten American Omaha-class light cruisers constructed during the interwar period and will be among the first light cruisers to set sail under the banner of the U.S. Navy in the upcoming closed testing for War Thunder’s naval battles.

In the early 1900s leading up to The Great War, conflicting views and opinions on cruiser design among the U.S. Navy’s top brass led to not a single new vessel of this class being laid down. With the outbreak of hostilities in Europe in 1914 and the later involvement of American forces in the conflict, the U.S. Navy had every opportunity to gather the needed experience for creating a new cruiser design.





The USS Trenton is steaming at full speed towards the closed testing of War Thunder’s naval forces and participants of these tests will be among the first players who will have the chance to command this powerful warship in battle. Time to raise the anchor and leave the comfort of calm seas behind you, captains!
