The Official War Thunder Wikipedia, run by Gaijin itself, is now open to edits and submissions from ordinary registered users, so if you feel like getting in on all the official "action" going on over there, then head on over to http://wiki.warthunder.com/ . =)

After you've submitted an edit on their Wiki, it will have to be approved, so don't panic if you don't see your work displayed instantly.

I'm not active on the site here, but I'm always willing to help you guys out and share my know-how in terms of using and editing this wikia page, so just ask (I've had a hand in setting most of the stuff up, after all ;) ). I'm really proud of all the work you folks have continued to do and you have my sincerest thanks!!

Wikia Renovations

Hello everyone! :)

We are currently in the process of planning an overhaul of the wikia, getting it up to date in terms of data, as well as making it easier to navigate. In order to help us do this, we're looking into blocking edits made by non-registered users, in order to ensure that we won't experience any more vandalism attempts or spam, while working on the wikia. What this will mean to you will largely depend on how you're using the Wikia today. If you already have a free user account, then nothing will change - you will still be able to edit like you've been able to previously. If you haven't signed up for a user account yet, however, you won't be able to edit any of the pages on the Wikia untill it is re-enabled. As an unregistered …

We need to sort out this wiki

Guys, I can conclude that serious changes need to be made to this wiki:

1) We need stratagy guides for each aircraft, right now we have something that looks like it was copied and pasted.

2) We need to delete pages for aircraft that already have one.

3) We need to edit aircraft pages to show their tiers as of the Patch 1.37 re-tiering

4) We need to add in aircraft that are currently in-game, but not in-wikia.

Future wiki project

Hai to all inhabitants of the War Thunder wikia

I've been contacted by some guys from Duxter about starting a War Thunder wiki and I was hoping to get in touch with the top contributors in the WT wiki here. I've already spoke with Backfire about this and I've been given the green light to ask about this.

I've also made a thread, located here: http://warthunder.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:7231

If you want to know more, contact me. :3

There's alot of garbage around here, and it's trash day!

So, looking around lately, I've noticed that there is someone who is creating random pages with a tangle of letters, with the description that follows:


what normally follows is a summary of either




I consider this issue quite serious, and I urge anyone to remove these cesspools. Alas, I cannot tirangulate the exact people doing this, either they operate as 1 person with several different computers, or a bunch of people that have planned it out.

Any and all pages that are found like this should be renamed "To be deleted" until some admins are able to sort this out.

There are quite litterally hundreds, they must account for nearly 50% of this wiki, this must b…

Kamikaze Issue

I get very much pissed when these ramtards come and try to make a desperate kill wrecking the entertainment of the game. Just a few minutes ago, half of my crew got rammed by Spitfires for christ sake! It's annoying when people with great quality planes ram you for a kill!

Clean up?

So I was wondering around the wikia lately, and i realised a lot of pages could do with clean ups. Specifically the countries that are accessed via the tab. They provide little information compared ot those that are linked at the front page. I think we should either get rid of them or make them identical to the pages at the home page.

General Fighter Tactics

  • Try to secure the upper hand before attacking. If possible, keep the sun behind you.
  • Always carry through an attack when you have started it.
  • Fire only at close range and only when your opponent is properly in your sights.
  • Always keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses.
  • In any form of attack it is essential to assail your opponent from behind.
  • If your opponent dives on you, do not try to evade his onslaught, but fly to meet it.
  • When over the enemy’s lines never forget your own line of retreat.
  • Attack on principal in groups of four or six. When the fight breaks up into a series of single combats, take care that several do not go for one opponent.

Console Releases

As announced at the Microsoft Press Conference at E3, World of Tanks is now coming to the Xbox 360 this summer. Last month, it was announced that War Thunder is heading for Playstation 4 with a release sometime in Q4 of this year. Thoughts? Since I do not have Playstation 3, the War Thunder release is irrelevant to me. From what I understand, World of Tanks will be free to play on the Xbox 360. And, since I have one, I will most likely play it. However, I think their releases will be pretty lackluster. I don't think the strategic gameplay style of both games also doesn't sound like it would resonate with the console fanbase. If both are free-to-play, they'll probably have the same initial surge of players that most free arcade games get, but …
