War Thunder has kicked off its S.U.M.M.E.R. event, running now through August 31 across PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

During the event, you’ll be able to complete in-game tasks in battle to get six new and exclusive vehicles: Ar 196 A-3 hydroplane, Infanterikanonvagn 73 tank, Freccia P-493 gunboat, F11F-1 Tiger fighter jet, Leopard C2A1 tank and “Maxim Gorky” light cruiser, as well as camouflages and decals.

These new vehicles are meant to represent the different countries and their respective technologies from that era. For example, the F11F-1 Tiger was an American carrier-based fighter developed in the 50’s for the needs of the US Navy. It became one of the first supersonic aircraft in service with the Navy and actually did not stay in service for long - new, faster jets began to replace the Tiger very quickly. The fighter remained in the ranks of the famous US Navy aerobatic team, the Blue Angels, for the greater time.

If you want to participate in the event, simply take part in the regular Random Battles. During these battles, you can earn “Stars” for tankers, pilots and captains that unlock prizes, such as decals, camouflages and the aforementioned vehicles.
