War Thunder Battle Of Britain Event And Legends Video

Posted on 15 Sep 2017

It’s been 77 years since the Battle of Britain, as of today. British and German air forces clashed as the RAF tried, and succeeded, in stopping the largest Luftwaffe bombing raid on the south-east of England. It’s been immortalised in many movies and games and now War Thunder is commemorating the event with a weekend “Royal Joust” event – an multi-player free-for-all that costs 15,000 Lions to enter. The first player to shoot down 8 aircraft wins and receives the prize of 120,000 Lions.

As you can see above, there’s a new entry to the Legends video series, appropriately focusing on the Supermarine Spitfire, arguably Britain’s most recognisable, and effective World War 2 fighter aircraft.
