War Thunder’s Operation Shipyard Has Begun

War Thunder Operation Shipyard

War Thunder has begun its latest event, “Operation Shipyard”, which runs from today until October 14th, 2019. Operation Shipyard will have players assembling an armored boat, the MBK-161. Through battles, players will earn blueprints and materials to assemble this rare armored vehicle, which they can either keep or exchange for one of three other rare vehicles: an MBK-161 armored boat, the VT 1-2 SPG, a Whirlwind P.9 fighter and the H-34 helicopter. There are two ways for those who want to get the new vehicles as fast as possible: players can either play well and win their battles, or purchase the missing items in the Market.

Perhaps the most interesting reward is the German experimental VT 1-2 self-propelled gun that was developed in Germany in the early ’70s as part of the replacement program for the more traditional tanks. The VT1-2 has two powerful 120 mm guns without any conventional traverse – the cannons are rotated using the whole hull via the tracks. As was the case with the actual constructed prototype, the in-game version of the VT1-2 has been modeled without the use of armored steel, so it does not have much protection and the players would be better to rely on its firepower and mobility.
