War Thunder's Alpha Strike Update Adds Hungarian Subtree & New Vehicles in March

Gaijin Entertainment, the developer of the online military action game War Thunder, has announced the release of a new major update, Alpha Strike, which is set to come out in March. This update will introduce the Hungarian aviation tech subtree and a variety of new vehicles, including the French four-barreled anti-aircraft gun VTT DCA, the British multirole helicopter Wessex HU.5, the Japanese battleship Mutsu, and the wheeled tank destroyer Centauro RGO used by the personal guard of the Sultan of Oman.

The Hungarian Air Force during WW2 primarily used German-made equipment and switched to Soviet equipment after 1945. The top aircraft in the Hungarian subtree is the Swedish-made JAS39C multi-role fighter, which entered service in the early 2000s.

The VTT DCA is an anti-aircraft gun with four 12.7 mm machine guns on a light tracked armored personnel carrier platform. It can fire direct fire along the direction of travel and can be used against aircraft, light tanks, and armored vehicles.

The Wessex HU.5 is one of the UK's most famous helicopters, having served for over 42 years and performed various missions, including amphibious and anti-submarine operations, rescue missions, and special forces operations. It can carry a significant arsenal of weapons into battle, including two AS.11 and AS.12 guided missiles.

Gaijin Entertainment is a developer and publisher of online games, including War Thunder, Crossout, Enlisted, CRSED: F.O.A.D., and Star Conflict. The company's diverse portfolio has received numerous awards from the game industry and mass media. War Thunder is a free-to-play, cross-platform, massively multiplayer military masterpiece with millions of fans worldwide. It offers over 2000 playable aircraft, armored vehicles, and ships from the 1900s to the 2010s. The game is committed to ongoing development via regular updates.
