The StuG III tank destroyer is my favourite tank so far. It's gun is devastating and it's low, sloped superstructure makes it both hard to take out and visually unique.

Don't play much ground forces, so probably the Sturmgesch├╝tz III Ausf. F.

The T54, because it its fast enough to relocate from area to area, the reload speed is perfect, shot accuracy is reliable and the overall armor is sweet.

German Tiger, the wild beast of the tank realm!

I just got it a couple days ago, it's a beast! But does not have very good armor protection though.

PanzerIIIF for Germany, as it is the most advanced fast tank (75km/h maximum speed ) for capture-the-flag :-)

Out of the ones I've used, I do rather like the first English Anti Air truck, the T17E2, because it's rather speedy and adorably underpowered.
Also, easy to drift in, which is always quite funny.

Is flying fun in War Thunder?

The fact that every plane feels individual and special in a roster comprised of hundreds of fighters, bombers and jets is extraordinary. Flying planes is satisfying and exhilarating in equal parts - especially in cockpit mode.

What theaters of WW2 are represented in War Thunder?

Both the European and Pacific theatres are present, although the European theatre is best represented.

Does War Thunder respect the military?

The attention to detail in making every vehicle feel totally different certainly suggests it does. There is little patriotism or flag waving to be observed, and no gratuitous gore to spoil the experience. If anything War Thunder's respect is for military hardware above all else.

Have you come up with any clever strategies in War Thunder?

There are loads of strategies to employ in War Thunder, both in tank and plane battles. A favourite tanking strategy of mine is flanking the map in a small light tank and causing chaos from behind enemy lines.

How realistic is War Thunder?

It's hard to tell considering how much hardware is on display. From what I've heard from the community it certainly does a better job of realism than some of its counterparts. The simulation battles are incredibly immersive.

How open is War Thunder to explore?

The battlefields are open from the off, and the feeling of freedom in aerial fights is particularly potent.

How much fun are the weapons in War Thunder?

The weapons aren't particularly punchy, but landing a critical hit never fails to put a smile on my face.

How does War Thunder reward teamplay?

Points for assists, points for landing the final blow and heaps of points for focussing on the objective. Lone wolf gameplay is not as well reimbursed.

I'm yet to put money into the game, though it is tempting.

How fair is the free-to-play model in War Thunder?

26

Progression is slow, but matchmaking and vehicles keep gameplay reasonably fair. It certainly doesn't feel like a pay to win game.

How good are the sounds in War Thunder?

26

The disparity between the game's best and worst sounds is significant. The blast of a tank's main gun is rattling and satisfying, some of the more subtle sounds can be tinny and can take you out of the experience pretty quickly.

while they are by no means stunning, they're pretty in their own right.

It's consistently compelling, but not exactly what I'd describe as fun.
