In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae

A free ship for everyone and a chance to unlock the rare E-100 Tank!

Gaijin Entertainment invites all fans of War Thunder to join them in celebrating the vehicular combat game’s six year anniversary. Players await several specials and events in game. Including discounts of up to 50% in the game store, free boosters, decals, a giveaway of the Soviet premium ship Ya-5M as well as tournaments for the rare German E-100 tank and He 162 jet fighter.

In just six years, War Thunder has grown from an air combat simulator to a massive vehicular combat game featuring the largest arsenal of playable vehicles ever, presenting players with over 1000 different tanks, aircraft, helicopters and ships from the 1930s to the early 1990s. The six year anniversary specials are a perfect opportunity for all fans to expand their lineups of vehicles even further, including the chance to unlock some of the rarest vehicles available in game.

From November 1st to November 5th, all players that reach five victories in the recently introduced Naval Battles will permanently receive the exclusive Soviet gunboat Ya-5M, while participating in just one battle of any kind will yield the exclusive “6 Years of War Thunder” decorative decal.

Through special tournaments, players can obtain a coupon for some of the rarest vehicles in game: the German super-heavy E-100 tank and the He 162 A-1 jet fighter. Competitive matches are available in all game modes and both single players and groups can participate. While the competition will be fierce, the rewards are definitely worth fighting for, as those vehicles cannot be obtained in War Thunder by any other means. Winners of a coupon are able to use it to unlock the vehicle for themselves, or sell it on the Gaijin Market to other players. Given the rarity, those coupons will certainly be in high demand!

The War Thunder anniversary celebrations will continue until November 10. Follow the news in-game for regular updates or check out the official War Thunder website for all information regarding the anniversary HERE.

thrustmaster-t-flight-headset-03So, from time to time, we folks at Combatsim get the opportunity to test out and review some really neat gear. When CSIM gets that call from the companies wanting us to put their gear to the test, they turn to us long-term, die-hard CSIM forum contributors (20 years hard time in my case) to give the gear a spin and jot down the essentials so we can let the rest of the world know our valued opinions. I got the nod from our fearless site lead a couple of weeks ago when Thrustmaster asked if CSIM would be willing to try out their newest offering, the T.Flight U.S. Air Force Edition Gaming Headset.
