[Development] New Location: Italy



Countless battles have already unfolded in the Mediterranean theatre in War Thunder, but with update 1.79 tankers will get the chance to escape the scorching desert heat of North Africa to fight on the first Mediterranean ground map set in the beautiful Italian countryside of the Reggio Calabria province!

Upcoming War Thunder update 1.79 brings with it a new map for combined arms battles set on the southernmost part of the Italian mainland. The map is inspired by the settlements and rocky landscape of the Reggio Calabria province overlooking the Strait of Messina.



All War Thunder players will have the chance to fight on the new Italian combined battles map, coming to the game with update 1.79! Prepare for battle, commanders!

[Development] XM-1 (C) and XM-1 (GM): Ancestors of the Abrams





IN SHORT: premium rank V tanks, the closest relatives of the legendary Abrams – high survivability, excellent mobility, and a fine cannon. They speed up the research of any US tank between ranks I and VI, get you tons of Silver Lions, and are a lot of fun to play!

Two new and magnificent rank V tanks are coming to War Thunder! It’s a story of a competition between two companies – Chrysler and General Motors – in creating a new main battle tank for the American army, which would soon become known around the world as the M1 Abrams.

In War Thunder, both tanks are very similar to each other. The XM-1 is a premium rank V tank with composite armor and side skirts. Though its armour is inferior to the armour of the M1 Abrams, it provides decent protection against any type of ammo at the top ranks.





The 1500-horsepower engine – a diesel engine on the XM-1 (GM) and gas-turbine on the XM-1 (C) – allows the tank to reach up to 75 km/h. The tank gets up to speed very quickly and is a pleasure to drive. The XM-1 (GM) version differs in its slightly higher maximum speed and hydraulic suspension, which gives the tank new opportunities in some combat situations.
