[Fleet] [Development] Frunze Destroyer



Built in 1914, the Novik-class destroyer "Bystry", which was later renamed as the “Frunze,” became one of the best combat ships of the Russian Empire. The Frunze made it through the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the Allied Intervention, and she also participated in the Second World War, where she defended the USSR. Meet the new destroyer in War Thunder!

The Novik-class series, which includes the Frunze, comprised of the most modernized destroyers among their class in the Imperial Russian Navy. This combat ship was laid down in Kherson in 1913 and received the designation “Bystry.” Following six months of construction, the destroyer was finally launched and soon allotted to the Black Sea Fleet. In 1918, the destroyer was captured during the German occupation and later, passed into the hands of the Anglo-French interventionists. She was then taken out of commission during a retreat and was only able to join the armed forces ranks under the soviet flag in 1927. The destroyer joined the Second World war under the designation “Frunze.” In the war’s summer of 1941, the ship was tasked with setting up minefields in the Black Sea and escorting convoys of transport ships. She also defended Odessa during its siege. On September 21st, the Frunze was attacked by the seasoned I Group pilots of the StG 77 wing during her attempt to rescue the Krasnaya Armenia gunboat bombed by Junkers aircraft. The Stukas performed numerous group raids on the destroyer, which resulted in the ship getting hit by several 250 kg bombs and consequently sinking.





This ship will be the first destroyer that Soviet Navy commanders will be able to pilot for now. We plan on including this ship in one of the upcoming fleet updates. Make sure you keep an eye on our news!

[Marathon] Good Old S.U.M.M.E.R







From 17th of August 11:00 GMT till 07:30 GMT on the 6th of September

During the last Operation S.U.M.M.E.R. event, we decided to experiment with new mission requirements which appealed to some, however there were players that wanted to see the summer marathon in the usual format. We will take all your feedback into account when preparing similar specials in the future, but we also want to ensure that this Summer leaves only good memories for all our players so we decided to launch another special with the good old terms! So here goes “Good Old S.U.M.M.E.R.”! Everything familiar and simple: complete the tasks or purchase the “Marks of distinction” without additional conditions and get prizes!

This time the grand reward of the event will be the American FJ-4B VMF 232 jet fighter with a new type of weaponry for War Thunder - guided air to ground missiles. As well as this, you can expect many other prizes: The British Martlet Mk IV, unique camouflages and decals!

Tankers will not be forgotten either, but another 20 days of marathon might be way too much, that’s why you will need to complete just 2 days of tasks from 22 to get a small, but unique prize - the Sd.Kfz. 234/3 armoured vehicle.
