  5. Download Wallpaper: 1280x1024 | 1920x1080 | 2560x1440 [Enduring Confrontation] Dunkirk - Air Defence Available from July 21st 16:30 GMT to July 24th 7:00 GMT Operation Dynamo, 22nd May - 4th June 1940 France was falling rapidly to the advancing German army, the Allied forces were divided by the German advance from the Ardennes to the Somme. The Allied armies in the north were cut off and quickly becoming encircled. An evacuation of the BEF (British Expeditionary Force) began on the 26th May whilst the Allies strengthened their defences against advancing German armour which met heavy resistance. More history: Heavy German bombing had rendered Dunkirk's harbour useless, and hundreds of thousands of men were stuck on the beach, hoping to be rescued. The Luftwaffe attacked the troops on the beach and reduced the town of Dunkirk to rubble whenever the weather was suitable. The RAF intercepted as many of the attacking aircraft as was humanly possible whilst being crippled by the distance they had to travel from Allied airfields to assist the beleaguered forces as well as pitting relatively inexperienced pilots against the more veteran German pilots. Despite the limitations, over the nine days of Operation Dynamo, the RAF flew 2,739 fighter sorties and an additional 822 reconnaissance and bombing missions. Fighter Command claimed 262 enemy aircraft downed for 106 of their own destroyed. On the 29th of May, the British public were advised of the evacuation, many privately owned boats started arriving at Dunkirk to ferry the troops to safety. This fleet of small vessels famously became known as the 'Little Ships'. The contribution these civilian vessels made and the bravery of the crews in their part in the evacuation set a source to the term 'Dunkirk spirit', an expression still used today to demonstrate the British will and the ability to rally together in the face of overwhelming odds. On the 4th of June, at the end of the operation, 198,000 British and 140,000 other Allied troops had been saved, while nearly all heavy equipment had been left behind. Although the Germans had taken over a million Allied prisoners in three weeks at a cost of 60,000 casualties, the evacuation has been seen as major morale boost to the British people and enabled the Allies to regroup for a fight that was to be joined in the skies over the “Home Turf” (The Battle of Britain), and to resist the anticipated German invasion of Britain (Operation Sealion). Available aircraft: Germany: Bf 109 E-1 Bf 109 E-3 Bf 109 E-4 Bf 110 C-4 Ju 87 B-2 Ju 88 A-1 Ju 88 A-4 He 111 H-3 Do 17 E-1 Do 17 Z-2 Great Britain: Hurricane Mk I Spitfire Mk I Spitfire Mk IIa Swordfish Mk I Blenheim Mk IV Wellington Mk Ic Do you like the event?

  6. From 15:00 GMT on July 21st until 07:00 GMT on July 24th 'War In Mid Air' is available in the following Arcade-mode events: Eastern Europe Normandy Tunisia Poland Guadalcanal Jungle vs. vs. vs. vs. vs. vs. In 'War in Mid Air' the teams are split between attackers and defenders. The task of the attacking aircraft team is to destroy any tanks that are positioned inside the city, as well as any anti-air player vehicles. The task of the defending anti-aircraft vehicles is to stop the rout from happening and hold the position in the city until the attacker has bled all his tickets or lost all aircraft. Tickets for the attacking team will reduce up to the point when all the city ground vehicles have been destroyed. If the aviation succeed in their task, the ticket bleed stops and the the task will switch to destroying the remaining, player controlled anti-air vehicles. The War Thunder Team

  9. RANK IV: J7W1 Shinden Engine Power: ~ 1.900 HP Top Speed: ~ 630 kph at 8.500 m Weight: ~ 4.400 kg Max altitude: ~ 12.500 m Armament: 4x 30mm Type-5 2x 60 kg Type 97 mod.6 4x 60 kg Type 97 mod.6 When Japanese intelligence learned of the B-29 bomber in 1943, the military realised plans for new types of aircraft would be required to defend the home islands. The priority for early fighters had been manoeuvrability and range, typified by the outstanding A6M Zero. However intercepting B-29s would require performance at extremely high altitude and the heaviest possible weaponry. Captain Masaoki Tsuruno produced an innovative canard design with a rear-mounted engine and three MXY6 gliders were built to test the configuration. Performance of the gliders was sufficiently impressive for the Imperial Japanese Navy to order the J7W1 from the drawing board, powered by a supercharged Mitsubishi piston engine. It was given the name Shinden meaning "Magnificent Lightning". The J7W1, found at the end of Rank IV of the Japanese naval fighter tree is an excellent aircraft, especially at a higher altitude. Try to climb as high as circumstances allow you. Its rate of climb is good but not spectacular, so have that in mind. Try to keep a speed of around 290km/h when climbing and be sure to remain diligent, looking for your enemy whilst gaining altitude. You want an altitude advantage over your opponents - the Shinden is exactly the type of aircraft that rewards “boom and zoom” gameplay. It has a good roll rate at high speed and if an opponent attempts to evade by pulling a snap manoeuvre you may be able to make a quick adjustment to keep your guns on them. Do not get into a sustained turning fight though, disengage promptly if your first pass fails, extend away and line up another attack. The main strength of the J7W1 is its exceptional dive speed. In Realistic and Simulator modes it can reach almost 900km/h before breaking up, faster than the most of the propeller-driven aircraft and early jets it may face. If an opponent attempts to escape by diving away you should be able to catch them, unless they overstress their airframe first. Conversely if you are at an altitude disadvantage and an opponent swoops down to attack, you may be able to dive to safety, but only if you have sufficient time and altitude to pick up speed and maintain a safe distance from your attacker. The four Type 5 30mm cannons give the J7W1 a formidable punch. Ammunition is in short supply however, with only 60 rounds per gun. In Arcade battles this is not such an issue, though the large calibre of the guns means you still face a lengthy wait for them to reload, so if you find a quiet moment without nearby enemies it is well worth manually reloading. In other modes you will need to exercise keen trigger discipline; only fire when you have a good chance of a hit and stick to short bursts. As the guns are nose-mounted you do not need to worry about convergence (targeting distance) and in the event of a head-on attack you can open fire at long range, but head-on engagements are always something of a lottery. The “Tracers” belt is a good option once the ammunition upgrade is unlocked, its shells have the highest velocity of the available ammunition types. PROS AND CONS OF THE VEHICLE: PROS: Good weapon placement Can reach very high speed in dive Excellent high altitude performance CONS: Limited defensive possibilities Slow at lower altitudes (compared to others) Engine on the back (easily damaged from behind) The Shinden's armament make it ideal for engaging heavy bombers, as befits an aircraft designed to intercept B-29s; always keep your speed up and do not approach from directly behind to avoid giving enemy gunners an easy shot. It should go without saying that attacking ground targets is not the best use of a fighter optimised for high altitude performance. The cannons are not effective against armour and the 60kg bombs it can carry are of limited use, especially as they must be placed very accurately due to their small blast radius. Only two prototypes of the J7W1 had been completed by the end of war, managing just a few test flights before the surrender of Japan. The ultimate aim was for the J7W to mount a jet engine, which would have been a relatively straightforward modification thanks to the rear-engine configuration. The US Navy took one of the prototypes back to the United States (currently in storage awaiting restoration), however it was never flown or developed further ,leaving it a tantalising "what if" of the early jet age.

  16. 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
