War Thunder presents two new modes based on real world military competitions
Exclusive Tank Biathlon and Sea Biathlon events coincide with International Army Games
Gaijin Entertainment announces that military online action game War Thunder just got two events based on real world military sporting events. Tank Biathlon is a recreation of the international tankers competition with the same name that premiered in 2013 as a part of International Army Games and has gathered dozens of participating countries since then. Sea Biathlon is inspired by both Tank Biathlon and Sea Battle competitions from the aforementioned International Army Games. Both events will be available from August 23rd to September 5th to coincide with the original competitions held this year.
Both Biathlon events are about four crews entering the race and striving to reach the finish line first. Tankers need to pass the obstacle course: overpass, snake, water barrier, whilst hitting the target from the main calibre cannon and machine gun by shooting from the static position and whilst moving. There are 8 playable nations available. Players either choose the T-72B3 or T-80U tank and apply a specific nation’s camo to it (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Syria, Kirghizia, Armenia, or Serbia), or choose the ZTZ96A that already has the Chinese camo on it. Sea Biathlon is a competition for Pr.206 "Shershen" torpedo boats that destroy various targets using the main calibre cannons and torpedoes. Each destroyed target activates a short boost.
Each biathlon victory will be rewarded with camouflage vouchers for either tanks or ships. Distinctive tank biathlon camos (red, blue, green and yellow) will be available for the following vehicles: Т-72B3, T-80U, M1A2 Abrams, Leopard 2A5, Challenger 2 (2F), Type 90 (B), ZTZ96A, Ariete PSO, Leclerc and Strv 122. Sea Biathlon reward camos will be available for Asheville (PGM-84), TS-Boot Proj. 206, Project 206, Fairmile D (697), Chikugo, Saetta P-494.
Both biathlon events are available to all War Thunder players for free and all necessary vehicles are provided automatically
