Gaijin Entertainment announces that an event dedicated to Soviet robotics has started in the online action game War Thunder that will completely change your perception of warfare principles. Unique combat machines from the world of the Atomic Heart game will meet in battle with conventional tanks, other ground vehicles and helicopters produced by the USSR and the U.S.A. during the Cold War times. The Atomic Thunder event is already available to players and will run until July 31st.
In Atomic Thunder, players are divided into two teams, which include the conventional military vehicles, such as tanks T-55A and M-60, helicopters AH-1 and Mi-24, and unique combat vehicles from Atomic Heart. The battle robot Hedgie can curl up into a ball and move swiftly around the location, jump up and attack enemies from above, as well as bombard them from afar with homing missiles with HEAT warheads. The Laser Pchela is a swift flying drone attacking with a laser. Finally, the Repair Pchela can repair allied vehicles and robots, as well as summon the Burav, a powerful fighting machine that attacks enemies from underground.
For their success in combat, players receive unique decorations and Atomic Heart-style avatars. Learn more about the rewards and other features of the event on the official War Thunder website.
