Armored Warfare: CELEBRATING THE DAY OF GERMAN UNITY

The Day of German Unity is an important German holiday, celebrating the reunification of Germany after five decades of being split into East and West, following the results of the Second World War. The reunification of Germany on October 3 1990 and the subsequent fall of the Berlin Wall represent the start of a new era of prosperity and democracy in the Federal Republic of Germany. To celebrate this important day in German history, we have prepared several bonuses for all players on both the North American and the European server.

GERMAN VEHICLES IN ARMORED WARFARE

German vehicles are one of the most important and popular vehicle groups in Armored Warfare. The mainstay of this group is the Leopard vehicle family:
These awesome Main Battle Tanks represent the pinnacle of German post-war military engineering. They all are highly mobile and, on higher Tiers, also well-protected, but can deal massive damage thanks to the presence of the excellent Rheinmetall 120mm smoothbore gun, one of the best, if not the best, tank weapons in the world. These modern German Main Battle Tanks are a result of a hundred years of German tank development, which are covered in our previous articles:
There are other German vehicles in the game as well, such as the powerful Panzerhaubitze 2000 artillery or the nimble Wiesel. But what does the future hold for German military products in Armored Warfare?
In Update 0.19, we will be introducing a new Tier 8 Leopard 2 progression variant – the Leopard 2 Evolution. Based on the Leopard 2A4, this massive armor upgrade by Rheinmetall gives the Leopard 2A4 a new edge, preparing it for 21st century combat. The Leopard 2 Evolution – previously an armor upgrade of the existing Leopard 2 – will now be a separate vehicle.

Other German vehicles will see changes as well. The Tier 3 Leopard 1 will be reworked to the Leopard 1A1A1 version, while the Wiesel will be reworked to Wiesel TOW (armed with a TOW launcher). Another variant of the Wiesel will also be eventually introduced.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the changes we are working on for German and other vehicles. Stay tuned for more!

War Thunder: 8.8cm Flak 37 (Sf.) auf s. Zgkw. 18t - A Heavyweight Flak

A combination of heavy half-track and 88 mm Flak cannon? Does that sound odd?Not if German engineering has anything to do with it! Let us introduce, the 8.8cm Flak 37 (Sf.) auf s. Zgkw. 18tThe Sd.Kfz.9 was the heaviest German half-tracked vehicle operated during the Second World War. Designed initially as heavy tractor for heavy artillery and as a recovery vehicle capable of towing tanks from critical situations. The first prototype was conceived in 1936. The vehicle was primarily designed to be an engineering machine, however it was during the Second World War that the Sd.Kfz. 9 was employed as a platform for artillery. The vehicle became a mobile Anti-Aircraft Artillery and Tank Destroyer capable of mounting several configurations of weaponry.

Zgkw. 18 ton tractor mounted with an 88 mm Flak 37 cannon. This version is co…
