In this video I am taking you along when I work on obtaining the Red Raiders Decal in War Thunder. The decal requires you to drop 30k TNT on bases in Air RB with US aircraft. Luckily it is not a requirement to use bombers for the task, so I decided to use the versatile BR 4.0 P-61C-1. The plane can carry four 1000 lbs bombs equal to 0.96 tons of TNT.

In this request video Aleksa asked how to hit with the bombs dropped from the Soviet BR 3.0 Yak-9b fighter plane in War Thunder. The unusual thing about this fighter is, that it has an internal bomb bay capable of holding four 100 kg bombs, where virtually every other fighter plane using bombs have them mounted under the wings and fuselage.

In this video I am reviewing the new Swedish BR 2.3 SPAAG, the Pbv 301. The Swedish early SPAAG line is the worst in War Thunder and is plagued with vehicles sporting horrible turret traverse speed and equally bad turret elevations. Will this new SPAAG help out the suffering Swedes ? Watch and find out 🙂

In this short review I am taking a look a the new battle pass vehicle, the Japanese BR 4.7 A6M6c fighter plane. This particular Zero strays from the regular Zero's with heavier armament, self sealing fuel tanks and protection for the pilot. The trade-off is a much heavier Zero which takes a hit on the maneuverability the regular Zero's are know for. Is it worth it ? watch the video and find out 🙂

Have You BANZAI'D Today ? | ST-A1 || War Thunder

In this video I am in a match during the Summer Landing event in War Thunder. I thought the event would be a good time to spade some of the many tanks I have unlocked but really not spend any time with. I am in this instance using the Japanese BR 6.3 medium tank ST-A1 with only a minimum of modifications unlocked.

In this video I am using the US strike aircraft XA-38 also called the Grizzly. The XA is a premium aircraft found at BR 4.3. The main armament of the XA is a 75 mm cannon in its nose, just like the German duck, the Hs 129-B3. The Grizzly is much faster than the German duck and has very effective defensive armament. On the flipside, the German Hs 129-B3 has a more effective 75 mm cannon.
The XA-3 is not seen very often, which is a shame, it does its job of destroying tanks very well.

Season 4 of the Battle Pass started today in War Thunder. The first vehicle we have access to is the German Rank II BR 3.3 tank destroyer Sd.Kfz. 251/22. This version of the 251 uses the very powerful 75 mm PAK 40, same gun found on the Marder III H and the infamous Pak Puma. We now have 3 different versions of the Sd.Kfz. 251 in the game.

The Meme | 15cm sIG B 33 Sfl || War Thunder

In this video I am using one of the meme vehicle in War Thunder, the German BR 1.0 15cm sIG B 33 Sfl Tank Destroyer. Its 150mm gun is a meme in itself, together with the Soviet KV-2 and Japanese Ho-Ro. 

This is a request video where I was asked to play the TD from BR 1.0 to 6.7 as I had done with the German He 112 A-O in a previous video. This time I had more vehicles unlocked in the German tech tree so highest BR is now 8.7

It was a super fun video to make and besides the fun, I made a good amount of Silver Lions in the process. Because the TD being BR 1.0 I received multiple awards in matches for destroying vehicles BRs higher than my own. The largest reward "God mode" you receive when you destroy a vehicle 5 BRs higher than yourself. With the BR 1.0 you just have to destroy a BR 6.0 vehicle to receive that award which is worth 30k Silver Lions. So with minimal effort you can within a couple minutes earn 30k SL and your loss will maximum be 600 SL for the derp guns full repair cost

The Spook 👻 | How to P-61C1 || War Thunder

In this request video I am taking BR 4.0 US P-61 C1 out for a spin. The P-61 is a heavy interceptor which has great use both in Air and Ground battles. In Air battles the P-61 is great for going bomber hunting and with its four 20 mm cannons you can quickly dispatch any bomber. This interceptor also has an amazing turret with four 12.7mm MGs. The AI gunner can assist you both offensively and defensively and with the ability to fire 90 degrees up, you have the Schräge Musik option as well. You can also use the plane for base bombing since it has a large bombload with up to 4 1000lbs bombs. In ground battles the P-61 can be used as a CAS plane strafing tanks with the cannons and dropping bombs.

Way Of The Gun 💢 Chi-to Late || War Thunder

In this request video, I am taking out the Japanese Chi-To Late tank for a spin. The Chi-To has a great 75 mm gun for its BR 4.7 and it works fine also in up-tiers which is lucky, since up-tiers is all you get with BR 4.7. The Chi-To Late is very similar to the Chi-To which is also at BR 4.7. The Late model has a different and smaller turret which is angled more and so provides slightly better protection. The engine of the Late model is also slightly stronger than engine of the regular Chi-To. The gun of the Chi-To Late is the best of any BR 4.7 tank in my opinion. The APHE shell as a great amount of TNT filler and very good armor penetration. Unfortunately there are limited options when trying to make a full line-up with the Chi-To Late. You basically only have The Late and the normal Chi-to at BR 4.7. The remaining line-up either has to be lower or higher tier vehicles.

37 mm Goodness | How to Bf 110 G-2 CAS || War Thunder

In this request video, I am using the German Bf 110 G-2 sitting at BR 3.7. This Bf 110 model can carry the very potent 37mm cannon. The cannon was originally used against bombers, but it can also very effectively be used against tanks in ground RB using the HVAP shell. You have 66 shells available  for the 37mm cannon and depending on which kind of tank you attack, only a few hits can either disable or destroy it.

Schräge Musik - How To / Is It Worth It ? 🎺 | War Thunder

In this video I am taking a look at the Schräge Music weapon system. In War Thunder the upwards firing cannons can be used on 3 aircraft. Two from Germany and one from Japan. Italy also has borrowed the Bf 110 G-4, but that plane is sadly a premium. The system is meant to be used against bombers weak underside where most of them have no defensive turrets.

Super Secret German Stealth Ammo 😎 | War Thunder

In this request video I am taking a look at the German Pz. 38 (t) A and Do 17 E-1 bomber. The panzer is BR 1.3 and the bomber is BR 1.0. What makes the Pz 38 special, is the access to a shell which has no tracer element. With this small change you now have the ability to stay hidden from enemy sight for a long period of time because they cannot trace where the shot came from.

How to use the FRITZ X Glide Bomb 💣| War Thunder

In this guide video I will show you how to control and use the German Fritz X glide bomb. The Fritz X was the first world's first precision guided weapon deployed in combat and was designed for anti-shipping. In War Thunder only two German bomber aircraft are able to use the Fritz X, namely the He 111 H6 sitting at BR 2.7 and the much larger He 177 A-5 at BR 6.0. The Fritz X is weighs over 1.5 ton and is equipped with an armor piercing warhead.

Who Am I Avenging ? - A30 Avenger | War Thunder

In this request video I am taking out the A30 Avenger for a spin. The Avenger is a British "tank" sitting at BR 4.7. It has the powerful 17 pounder gun which does very well, both at the vehicles own BR and in full up-tier matches. The tank designation is not very fitting though, if played as a regular medium tank it is absolutely horrible.

Dawn of the Rocketeers - 15 cm Pz.W.42 (War Thunder)

In this video I am taking out the German 15 cm Pz.W.42 rocket launcher vehicle. With a patch to War Thunder today, all vehicles which have access to rockets, minus the Soviet RBT-5, now have a proper reticle with range indicators. Previously, the vehicles reticle consisted of a vertical line with no horizontal range lines, making precise aiming impossible. With this quality of life update, those vehicles can now join a line up and is not just a silly meme vehicle anymore.

Blue Whale Gunship - PBJ 1H (War Thunder)

In this video I am taking out the PBJ 1H. The PBJ's are modified B-25 medium bombers used for ground attack with more heavy machine guns placed in the nose section, there they replaced the bombardier and bombing sights. With this particular model, the 1H, you have an additional 75mm cannon mounted in the nose. In WW II, the PBJ's were used in the Pacific Theater where they harassed merchant shipping and attacked Japanese Island bases.
