War Thunder adds British tanks

Because what better represents a giant angry house than British Values? Rolling across the landscape, firing tea. This is my vision of World War 2 combat and you can't take it away from me.

In a devblog on the official site, War Thunder devs Gaijin Entertainment break down the tanks they're adding from our noble home forces. They are as follows.

The A34 'Comet': A medium cruiser that packs a serious punch at high speeds, demolishing enemies while moving too fast to be targetted. Don't get stuck in the mud unless you like the idea of a very angry shell coming through your hull with more than a couple of words for you about the state of your living arrangements. And death. White hot death.

The Churchill Mk. III: A slow, steady infantry support vehicle that will take everything thrown at it and give back twice as good. If enemies retreat you're meant to slowly roll up to them while screaming whatever motivational song you can think of in the hope it will help protect you (along with your strong armour). I recommend Taylor Swift's Shake It Off.

The Centurion Mk. 3: A later development than most here, its real-life equivelent never took to the field in World War 2 but did duty in later conflicts. Its massive gun, seen above, utilised the sabot ammo type which excelled at piercing armour with its dart shaped, skin shedding rounds.

Phwoar: guns. War Thunder's free to play on Steam.

Steam says I have 523 hours played in War Thunder, but that number will be growing for a few hundred when this update rolls in.

I have been waiting for this to happen for a long time now. I quit playing saying I would not come back until they added the british tank line to the mix. Good times ahead. I wonder if they'll add a beta test early access thing like they did with the american tanks.

A good start. Needs more Matilda though. WoT has three of the beauties!

I can't imagine a british tank line without the iconic Matilda II, though it makes me wonder if they'll paywall it. I did have ungodly armor, and is one of the most popular in the british line I suppose.
