Tommy Gun referred to the original 1921 model. The model shown in the picture is the 1928 Thompson Submachine Gun" Chicago Typewriter". For anyone wondering although the Term Tommy gun became synonymous with all Thompson Sub Machine Guns. So neato.


When the decorations and decals are actually cooler than the “event vehicle”…


can it be added to ground vehicles?
and, when will bring back those old stickers and 3D decorations?
we missed out on too much interesting content

No, sorry. It’s a flag (navy flag). We do not have flags on ground vehicles.

Lame sale, and lame “event vehicle”. Come on gaijin… do better…


Maybe put out the tournament announcement before the tournament series starts next time, not halfway through it, just a suggestion, k thx.

Tournament list is always available here:

genuine question about the Hammer and Sickle being banned in some countrys same as the swastika as well as people // nations having bad memorys about it also same as swastika

should such a symbol be portrayed?


Yes, I know, that’s how you can see the four tournaments people missed out on Monday and Tuesday.

Which war ended on May 9?

I was expecting more that another yak 3…

Sorry, you took that date from where?

Okay, I’m gonna ask the question another way. Victory in what?


Would suggest rephrasing what you said such as The flag is for Naval ships, not Ground Vehicles. I know English isn’t your main language however, it’s becoming a little too wordy/a little confusing.


For the Eastern Front, although it ended at 8th with the capitulation of Germany, the words took around a day to reach, thus the Victory day for Eastern Front is celebrated 9th instead.

Formally yes, but in fact only the war of the USSR against Nazi Germany.
But we have the attributes (picture, decal, decoration) of a common victory. Gaijin wanted to satisfy everyone, and it’s funny. They want everything at once, but they’re afraid to say it.


Well with capitulation of Germany thats one less Axis power for all of Allies, and thats huge for whole Europe, as Japan wasnt a threat there as it was to China/USSR/USA and a number of other countries.
So this date is in fact a closure of Eastern Front, thus being a Victory day for the Eastern Front, but not the WW2.
Saying only USSR attributed to Eastern Front would be very wrong.



It’s not me saying, it’s the gaijin.



Repeat. They want everything at once, but they’re afraid to say it. Russians don’t celebrate the Eastern Front, they have no such concept. For this forum, a blurry description of some kind of victory, for that forum, only their victory. And common awards.
This date is mandatory for gaijin, but they can’t say it here.
