Can't use tanks such as M56 or any light tank in america because the planes somehow find you and gun you down. The Vietnam War was the first conflict that saw wide scale tactical deployment of helicopters. The Bell UH-1 Iroquois nicknamed 'Huey' was used extensively in counter-guerilla operations both as a troop carrier and a gunship. In the latter role it was outfitted with a variety of armaments including M60 machine guns, multi-barreled 7.62 mm Miniguns and unguided air-to-surface rockets. The M26 Pershing was a heavy tank / medium tank of the United States Army. The tank was named after General of the Armies John J. Pershing, who led the American Expeditionary Force in Europe in World War I. It was used in the last months of World War II during the Invasion of Germany and extensively during the Korean War. War Thunder outage map with current reported problems and downtime. Outage History Insights. Not sure how anyone else hasn't either, it just isn't fun. Can't use tanks such as M56 or any light tank in america because the planes somehow find you and gun you down.
From the information we have been given we know it comes with a 40mm Bofors cannon armed with at least 2 types of ammunition: HEF-T and AP-T. This should prove to be a mobile and reliable SPAA that should have the capability to take on aircraft and lightly armoured vehicles.
The second major news we have today is a new mechanic being introduced to War Thunder ground forces which is scouting. This has been added so that tanks with smaller calibre guns will no longer be useless in certain situations. The way it works is in Arcade battles you select the target and press the scout button to spot them for your team which will give you extra artillery uses, airspawn points and XP and credits.
In realistic it takes a different approach where you will only be able to spot them with binoculars or through your sights and it will only give the team an approximate position on the minimap, though if the target is damage or destroyed, the Spawn points required for aircraft will be reduced alongside XP and credits being rewarded.
These are the vehicles that will benefit from this new mechanic:
- M50 Ontos
- M24 TL
- M5A1 5th arm.div.
- Ru 251
- Begleitpanzer 57
- Pz.II H
- Obj. 906
- Type 60 SPRG
- AMX-13 (SS.11)
- and others (upon release)
As always hope you enjoyed this and shall see you when the next one is unveiled.
M36 GMC also known as Jackson was designed in 1943, due to increasing number heavy german armor like Panther and Tiger which its predecessor M10 with its 3-inch gun wasn't adequate against said tanks.
This was foreseen, in late summer 1942 American engineers had begun designing a new tank destroyer armed with a 90mm gun, which lead to prototype vehicles like 90mm GMC T53 and T53E1 essentially a 90mm gun mounted a the back of a sherman, both were rejected by Tank Destroyer Force because the design was too rushed.
In October 1942, the Ordance Department tested mounting the experimental 90mm gun into a M10 TD, even though it was reject by the head of the Tank Destroyer Force Andrew Bruce, favoring the M18 Hellcat it carry on anyway.
The 90mm gun was too heavy for the original M10 turret so a new was designed, first two prototypes 90mm GMC T71 were completed in September 1943.
Production vehicles used M10A1 chassis due to its abundant and superior automotive characteristics, after testing initial order for 300 vehicles was issued, T71 was designated as 90mm GMC M36 upon standardization on June 1 1944.
It partially replaced M10 tank destroyer in October 1944, it saw uses in the Korean war.
Production ended on May 1945 with 2324 of all models produced.
Much faster than its predecessor (M10) thanks to it's new Ford GAA Engine.
Electric powered 360° turret, allow quick flanking attack.
Powerful gun capable of penetrating most vehicle that it will be put up against as well as OHK when APCBC penetrate.
5 crew members, possible to survive a shot to the turret.
High silhouette not easy conceal self.
Open top turret, vulnerable to aircraft strafing as well fragment from above.
Shell rack are placed on hull side easy to hit.
First-stage ammo stowage cannot rapid fire for too long.
Armor is weak, SPAA at its BR can penetrate it easily.

M36 is a decent tank destroyer, good gun and mobility is a nice addition for 5.7.
