Update (6/15): Check out the styles and emblems you can buy through the in-game shop near the end of the article!
Two years ago, our football mode made its return to celebrate the football frenzy going on in France through the summer. This year, we’re ready to celebrate the biggest footballing nations around the world (and England) gathering together in Russia to prove who’s the best. That means we’re bringing football mode back but with some extra additions and improvements over the mode that saw the light of day in 2016.
Get ready for the arrival of Update 1.79! The following announcement has been posted on War Thunder's official portal, confirming that the required server maintenance for the update is scheduled for tomorrow morning: "At 08:00 GMT on the 12th of June the server will not be available as we will be implementing Update 1.79 "Project X"! in War Thunder. We will inform you when maintenance is over. Premium accounts will be compensated for the downtime. Thank you for your patience!"
World of Tanks - Fixing the Comrades: Three Soviet Tanks Get Required Adjustments (Updated with Obj. 277 & K-91 Changes)
Approaching Soviet reinforcements—Object 277 and K-91—will get their first taste of battle upon the release of Update 1.0.2. After being thoroughly assessed during our Common Tests, these machines are getting their share of adjustments. Alongside these newcomers, the Object 268 Version 4 has been tweaked to better fit the overall gameplay.
The full set of preliminary statistics for the 60TP Lewandowskiego, the heavy tank at the top of the new Polish branch, has arrived. Being the crowning of the tree, the 60TP has a great armor and a large-caliber gun that deals 750 damage (130mm and 152mm guns are being tested; the choice between them will be made later). The main disadvantages of the vehicle are fairly mediocre average penetration and limited mobility (due to the low power-to-weight ratio of 10-13 hp / t). This vehicle will be a compact "super-heavy" tank, slowly pushing the opponent's line of defense while blocking lots of damage and dishing out high damage per-shot in return. Read on for full details.
In short: an aerial bomb whose flight can be slightly corrected to hit targets more precisely. A fundamentally new weapon in War Thunder, coming in Update 1.79 "Project X"!
The IL-28Sh is an experimental attack version of the Soviet IL-28 jet bomber, developed in the late 1960s as a replacement to the MiG-15 in its fighter-bomber role and to complement the Su-7. Soon, all War Thunder pilots will get the chance to pilot another unique, and more than usually destructive, version of the IL-28 in the upcoming update 1.79 "Project X"!
The AMX-40 is a prototype French export main battle tank, developed during the 1980s based on experiences learned from the AMX-30. Despite the project’s ultimate failure to find a suitable buyer, the AMX-40 is bound to find an abundance of fans among War Thunder tankers, eager to put it through its paces in the upcoming update 1.79 “Project X”!
More info on the Polish tree in World of Tanks has arrived! Read all about the new branch here, including some background surrounding the development of Polish armor, as well as introductions to the new tier I-X vehicles in the first branch (including screenshots).
Today, we’re setting off the first Supertest of Polish progression vehicles, namely the 50TP Tyszkiewicza (tier IX heavy) and the 60TP Lewandowskiego (tier X heavy). These tanks are quite compact for their class, with excellent protection and above average alpha damage. Their speed may be lacking, but with protection like this, you don’t necessarily need to hurry in battle. Read on for more details.
Tankers! Update 1.0.2 is scheduled to be released next week, specifically on the night of the 11th-12th of June for the RU region. As per usual, EU & NA will likely receive it the day after. An article with more details, including an update overview, will be posted around then, so keep an eye out for that as well.

The Messerschmitt Bf 110 owes its most valuable asset - versatility - to the development of countless modifications which were adapted to fit nearly every imaginable combat role. With update 1.79 "Project X, fans of German aviation will have the chance to better experience that renowned versatility with the addition of some new modifications on the Bf 110. Let’s take a closer look!
In recent large updates, we have been improving our game’s audio according to plan, not only by reworking engine and firing sounds, but also their interaction with the environment and even the direction of your view, this allows us to achieve an incredible level of integration between the sounds and the aspect of the entire battle. Update 1.79 “Project X” also brings you new audio, especially if you’re a pilot.
A new modification of the famous T-62 main battle tank enters the battlefield in update 1.79 -- the T-62M-1! Featuring composite armor, improved mobility, and new shells (and ATGMs), the vehicle should make for a rather decent addition to the Soviet tech tree at rank 6.
In short: almost the best U.S. Navy attacker aircraft in the game - 4x20mm guns, plus bombs and 114 rockets. Up to 1000 KPH speed at ground level. Good as fighter, brilliant as an attacker in combined battles, and coming to an airfield (or battlefield) near you in update 1.79!
PROTanki has decided to provide the model and statistics of a very unique vehicle present in internal closed testing (NOT supertest) -- the Object 279. This is not a drill -- the model was actually created for the game. However, this vehicle shares the same fate as the Sturmtiger in World of Tanks, as it will NOT be made available to players, and is not planned to be introduced into the game any time soon. This is mainly due to the vehicle's incredibly-strong armor layout, where practically the only weakspot on the hull is the flat section at the rear, making the vehicle just about impossible to balance properly for the game. Regardless, for those interested, here are the vehicle's statistics as they stood in WG's closed internal testing, as well as some in-game screenshots of this monstrous tank -- the "Warrior of the Apocalypse".
