Operation W.I.N.T.E.R. is here in War Thunder across PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One,  and Xbox Series X|S.

Six new rare military vehicles have been added to the game, these are the Italian Ro.57 Quadriarma fighter, a French E.B.R. 75 wheeled tank, Japanese submarine chaser the Type K-8 (1942), a Soviet MiG-21 PFM, the South African Class 3 wheeled ground vehicle and the heavy cruiser USS Baltimore (CA-68). Players will be able to fight for them as well as for skins and other cosmetic items up until January 11.

For example, Ro.57  is a classic twin-engined heavy fighter of the early WWII period. The aircraft is able to survive heavy damage, still being able to complete a combat mission and return to the airfield even with one engine.

Additionally, Type K-8/Class No.13 Kusentei (1942) is a 1942 version of a submarine chaser typical for the WWII era Japanese coastal fleet. It stands out for its good survivability - even with an almost complete lack of armor, the large size and large crew allow the ship to withstand a fairly significant number of hits.

Operation W.I.N.T.E.R. tasks are performed while playing random ground, air or naval battles and are rewarded with various prizes, including vehicle coupons. Players can use these coupons to unlock the vehicles for their own account or sell them to other players on the Gaijin Market.
