New vehicles


The KV I C 756 (r) Platoon (Rank III) is truly unique. It features a Soviet KV-1 heavy breakthrough tank that was captured by the Wehrmacht. The platoon is made up of some stunning and powerful vehicles, this platoon offers an array of options you may not have even realized you desired.

  • KV I C 756 (r) – an excellent heavy tank that is sure to make an impact in its rank.
  • The Sd.Kfz.234/4 is a light and fast wheeled scout tank that compensates for its weak defense with a powerful 75mm cannon.
  • The Jagdpanzer IV is a self-propelled artillery unit classified as a "tank destroyer", featuring a very low silhouette and good frontal armor. Concealed amidst ruins and rocks, it poses a lethal surprise for unsuspecting enemies.
  • The Ostwind is an anti-aircraft vehicle equipped with a rapid-firing 40mm cannon capable of severing the wings of enemy "birds" with a single hit and piercing the sides of lightly armored tanks.


The AF D3 Barge (Rank I) holds the title of the fastest barge in the game. With its exotic appearance and х3 top-mounted 105mm cannon, it can swiftly overwhelm enemies and leave a rapidly vanishing trail on the water's surface. Equipped with two types of air defense, it can target seagulls and enemy planes, carries a large supply of mines and depth bombs. Its concrete deckhouse provides stability, with the only vulnerability being its steering, which, if knocked out, can cause loss of control.

Historical notes

In the 1930s, a clandestine group of military geneticists embarked on a covert project aimed at reducing aviation costs by substituting mechanical components with biomechanical objects. This endeavor, known as the "Cloud City" project, drew inspiration from historical battles such as the Siege of Troy, the Battle of Neva, and the Battle of Waterloo, as well as from Leonardo da Vinci's obscure studies on integrating flying machines with horses.

Collaborating with top hippologists, biologists, and geneticists, alongside military engineers and aircraft designers, they meticulously calculated optimal parameters to enable horses to achieve maximum airspeed while maintaining high aerodynamic performance and maneuverability. Several years later, scientists successfully bred a specialized breed of miniature horses dubbed "Sky Wanderers." These resilient creatures possessed robust vestibular systems, were highly trainable, memorized flight routes, exhibited fearlessness in the face of loud noises like gunshots and explosions, and, equipped with frame harnesses and auxiliary mechanical wings, could effortlessly transport even bulky payloads.

Below is a photo featuring the initial members of the breed.

According to the experiment journal entries, by the end of 1954, seven optimal biological units were produced for military applications: reconnaissance, aerial combat, ground target destruction, and more. At the height of the animal rights movement, the project was halted due to ethical concerns. The winged horses were assigned individual names and spent the remainder of their lives in a classified reserve in the mountains. Recently, the War Thunder Mobile team obtained access to the classified documents and successfully recreated these unique units!

On April 1, 2024, War Thunder Mobile players will have a special opportunity to test the sky cavalry in real battles!

New location

Cloud City, like other locations in our game, has been meticulously recreated for maximum realism, following the blueprints from the secret project. The thin air at high altitude is comfortable for the original inhabitants of this area, but it can cause slight vertigo in unprepared individuals.

List of the new units and their weapons



The maneuverable Cupcake is equipped with four 12.7mm machine guns, enabling it to target and hit fast-moving aerial threats while effortlessly dodging incoming fire.

The swift Elegance, cloaked in sky camouflage, scouts the terrain with agility and is prepared to unleash a barrage of shells from its 20mm cannons upon the enemy.

The Pineapple Pie, a formidable warrior armed with two 7.62mm miniguns, provides cover for allies, ensuring that enemy aircraft have no chance to sneak up from behind undetected.

The purpose-built Starburst is equipped with two weapons: unguided air-to-air missiles with radio fuzes for intercepting enemies and destroying ground targets, as well as two 12.7 mm machine guns for close combat.

The unstoppable Rainbow jet can take down even the toughest and most armored opponents with its two precision 20mm cannons.

The powerful Bubblegum fires two 37mm assault cannons at the enemy, while the 6 RBS are equally effective against both aircraft and ground targets.

The unique Sweet Storm is equipped with two 12.7mm machine guns, a 12.7mm turret, and powerful aerial bombs to destroy ground units.
