Finland becomes part of War Thunder – Esports Extras.

Gaijin Entertainment announces “Fire and Ice”, the next major content update for the vehicle combat simulation game WarThunder. It will bring into play the Finnish tank and air forces, as well as a new map inspired by the Scandinavian country. Other nations’ tech trees will also receive new ground vehicles, warships, planes and helicopters, including some equipped with a weapon type entirely new to War Thunder. The Fire and Ice update will be available for players to download in the coming weeks.

The Finnish Armed Forces have extensive combat experience, having participated in the Winter War against the USSR, World War II and a number of peacekeeping missions within NATO. The country typically used imported technology from various manufacturers (including captured vehicles) and adapted it to its own needs. For example, the British-made Vickers Mk.E light tank was not adopted by the British military, but used by other countries, including Finland. Another unique example is the BT-42, a strange but very interesting conversion of captured Soviet BT-7 tanks converted to an assault gun with a British 4.5-inch howitzer in a turret. After World War II, Finland bought military hardware from both the USSR and the West, giving players access to the strangest vehicle combinations, e.g. B. the British Vampire FB 52A fighter jet and Soviet T-72M tank (the export variant of the T-72A, which appears for the first time in the game).

The Finnish ground and air vehicle tech lines will become part of the Swedish tech tree in War Thunder (similar to the South African vehicles in the UK tech tree). This approach will greatly expand the tactical possibilities for players who already play Swedish vehicles and want to experiment with their vehicle setup.

Information on other new features of the Fire and Ice update will be published on the War Thunder official website in the coming weeks.
