In coordination with the real world International Army Games, the folks over at War Thunder have launched exclusive Tank Biathlon and Sea Biathlon events to celebrate.

Tank Biathlon is a recreation of the international tankers’ competition with the same name that premiered in 2013 as a part of International Army Games and has gathered dozens of participating countries since then.

Sea Biathlon, meanwhile, is inspired by both Tank Biathlon and Sea Battle competitions from the International Army Games. Both events will be available from August 23rd to September 5th to coincide with the original competitions held this year.

Of course, rewards are in order. The accompanying press release notes that each biathlon victory will be rewarded with camouflage vouchers for either tanks or ships. Distinctive tank biathlon camos (red, blue, green and yellow) will be available for the following vehicles: ?-72B3, T-80U, M1A2 Abrams, Leopard 2A5, Challenger 2 (2F), Type 90 (B), ZTZ96A, Ariete PSO, Leclerc and Strv 122. Sea Biathlon reward camos will be available for Asheville (PGM-84), TS-Boot Proj. 206, Project 206, Fairmile D (697), Chikugo, Saetta P-494.
