  3. The “Artigliere” version is a prototype conversion of the P.108 bomber developed in 1943 with the purpose of allowing the aircraft to fulfill anti-ship duties. Although testing showed favourable performance, further development and serial production was halted due to the Italian surrender later that year. History In February 1943, work was completed on an experimental version of the P.108 bomber intended to carry out anti-ship duties. The new design was designated P.108A (Artigliere - Gunner) and was fitted with a 102 mm cannon. The 102 mm L40 cannon was derived from a commonly used 90 mm cannon, employed by both the Italian army and navy alike, which had its calibre increased for better effectiveness against ships. The cannon could achieve a practical rate of fire of 20 rounds per minute and it’s ammunition complement of 12 rounds was fed via a drum magazine. The aircraft was able to carry up to 53 rounds for the main cannon, thus making in-flight reloads possible. However, the additional weight and required space for the cannon made it impossible to carry additional bombs in the internal bomb bay, in turn severely limiting ground support capabilities. Although the aircraft showed favourable results in numerous tests throughout 1943, and whilst initially being in high demand, the changing tide of the war, and consequent shifts in development priorities, lead to a steady decrease of interest in the project. In the end, out of the first batch of planned aircraft, only the first prototype based on a P.108B airframe, was built. This prototype was taken over by German forces prior to Italy’s surrender in late 1943 and was shipped to Germany in 1944 where it was subsequently destroyed in an allied bombing. In War Thunder, the P.108A will complement the intermediate ranks of the Italian aviation tech tree. Despite being a large, four-engined aircraft, the P.108A still remains very sturdy due to the rugged design and all-metal construction. Thanks to that, pilots of this unique machine can comfortably perform aggressive attack runs knowing that the structural integrity allows for absorption of serious damage, allowing for a safe voyage back to base. It should go without saying that the 102 mm cannon will present a serious threat to both tankers and future captains, as it is often that a single, well placed hit is usually enough to seriously cripple or knock out even the most well-protected targets all together. Something that should constantly be in the minds of this aircraft’s future pilots is the limited ammunition capacity for the main cannon. In order to achieve maximum efficiency, players should maintain a good trigger discipline and take shots only if they are sure that they will reach their target. However, when the cannon inevitably runs out of ammo, the P.108A is still able to engage enemy ships, thanks to 3 torpedo mounts underneath the fuselage. Stay vigilant captains, this one is not giving up easily! Download Wallpaper 1280x1024 | 1920x1080 | 2560x1440 The P.108A will make its debut in War Thunder with the upcoming update 1.69 “Regia Aeronautica”, as a rank 3 heavy attacker of the Italian research tree. The high command advises captains of naval vessels to begin with routine anti-air exercises as soon as favorable weather conditions permit!

  14. Welcome to our new bi-monthly instalment of the Art Challenge! Take out your preferred drawing tools of choice, be it the simple Pencil and its Paper, or the revolutionary Drawing Tablet, to digitalise your work and prepare to embark on an epic challenge to test your artistic skills! This contest has been separated into two groups, which differ slightly from what you’d usually expect: - Physical: Traditional Pencil & Paper artwork and model kits. - Digital: 2D or 3D digital artwork or rendered models. Your task for this contest is simple: Create and design a CONCEPT of a new vehicle that could have existed under War Thunder's timeline. For this instalment of the Art Challenge, we have brought Aslad onboard, the creator of the Concept Challenge, as a guest judge. If you're not familiar with the Concept Challenge, then fret not! We’ll tell you what you need to know. You can use existing vehicles as the basis for your design, or create a completely fresh new design, without the worry of needing to take physics into account, which allows you to go wild with your creativity, as long as you don’t make something ‘too’ ridiculous. Take a look at OliS77 and VishNChips’ designs to get an idea of what we're looking for: Remember, your choice of vehicle/infantries/etc to be represented in your artwork are limited to War Thunder's timeline, meaning entries that feature modern and futuristic vehicles will not be accepted if they clearly do not look like vehicles of the WWII to early Cold War era. Due to the nature of the chosen theme, Digital 3D Models and Model kits WILL be accepted. This is an exception owing to the theme of the contest this time around. Screenshots still will not be accepted in any form – However, you may use screenshots as references for your work if you wish, but do not trace them. Attention: If we somehow spot a design that appears more than once, the best of them may be picked as a competing candidate. Try to be creative to avoid such situations! Rules: • The deadline for this contest is June 13th 2017, 12:00 GMT.. • The theme for this contest is ‘Concept design’ - You can design anything you want as long as you stay true to War Thunder's eras of vehicles (WW2, Korean War, etc...no modern tanks for example!) • Title your submission when you post it in this thread. Make sure to note which group you are submitting your work to. Additionally, post it on live.warthunder with the hashtag " #artchallenge8 " and post the link to your WT.Live post in this thread. • Your design can be one of the following: - A piece of Art - A Schematic - A Blueprint - An Orthographic drawing - A 3D Digital Model - A Model Kit • Pencil Artists - You can scan your work if needed, but make no alterations to the image in an editing program afterwards! • Your submission must be created solely for this contest - Previous submissions and submissions that have been posted before this contest will not be accepted! • 1 Submission per user. You cannot participate in multiple categories! • You must be the sole author of your work - Do not copy or steal the work of others! (Proof of Ownership may be required) • The submission must not violate moral, ethical or legal norms or the Forum Rules, Game Rules or the User Agreement. • This contest may be cancelled at any time, amended and/or the rules may change. • The contest organisers reserve the right to alter these conditions at any time. Prizes: Pencil + Paper artwork Digital artwork 1st Place: 4000 2nd Place: 3000 3rd Place: 2000 1st Place: 4000 2nd Place: 3000 3rd Place: 2000 The War Thunder Team
  15. Dear players, you all know that we have always supported the principle of fair play. Every tanker or pilot, whether he is your ally or your opponent is still a player the same as you, who wants to enjoy the game. Sometimes specific players try and spoil the fun, especially teamkillers. Frequently, they will be punished by our automated punishment system, but certain unfair moves are difficult to detect with our system, for instance members of the “PVVD” squadron decided that they were somehow superior than other players and ruined a game session. Behaviour like this cannot and will not be tolerated. Players Trimurti_ and _BATAREYKIN_ will be blocked from the game for 15 days, the Squadron leaders in this case will receive a strict warning. Please, show respect for each other and fight fair. When caught disrupting game play in this manner, action will be taken. Any problems with game play misbehaviour should be reported using the in-game reporting system. Team kills will continue to be handled automatically. The War Thunder Team
