Please consider adding Light Cruiser Avrora to War Thunder

Avrora is my favorite light cruiser, if not my favorite ship of all time, and considering her big historical significance, I think it would make a lot of sense to have her in game. Developers, please consider this.

I too wish to see the Pallada class Protected cruisers an we could see some at a few BR’s, An as built at 4.3 while a 1917 refit at 4.7, The Aurora would probably come as a event or premium imo.

Speaking of Those old protected cruisers I would wish they’d added quite a few of them between 3.3 & 5.0, My wishes for these types include the Imperial Russian cruiser Zhemchug Izumrud class, Australian cruiser HMAS Pioneer Pelorus class cruiser or the US USS Olympia.

They are dog meat in game.

I’d definitely like to see her added, a neat and very notable historical ship.

Well, as an f2p player, I would much more like Aurora to be, either an event or tech tree ship, since I really want to have her if she comes. But other than that I fully agree with your reply. Thanks!

Yes, she’s a very beautiful ship of notable historical significance

Beautiful

Well the weather was nice that day - it was early Autumn, and there wasn’t a war yet!

As a museum ship it is not well presented IMO - the top deck is open to the public, but the displays below deck are fairly minimal, with little non-Russian commentary.

As a warship IMO it has little to recommend it other than the myth of the first shot (it fired blank as a signal - not as an attack!) and being old - it is not an outstanding design of any type.
