Operation Holiday Maneuvers
The Operation Holiday Maneuvers event will run from December 20 to January 17 15:00 PT / 18:00 ET.
By advancing along the holiday route, players receive valuable Christmas gifts. Among the main prizes are aircraft from the new branch of British multirole fighters (The Hawker Typhoon, Hawker Tempest, and Hawker Sea Hawk), a pilot for the Hawker Typhoon with 5 skill points, a pilot for the Hawker Sea Hawk with 9 skill points, holiday paint schemes and decorations for these vehicles, as well as the Premium British fighter Hawker P.V.3 with a unique pilot Rudolf Hawker. When flying on the Hawker P.V.3, the unique pilot puts on a holiday mask and his plane leaves festive trails in the sky.
The continuation of the British Hawker multirole fighters’ line was added. Fast and well-adapted for aerial combat, these aircraft are armed with powerful autocannons and rockets.
- Hawker Typhoon — UK, Tier VII multirole fighter;
- Hawker Tempest — UK, Tier VIII multirole fighter;
- Hawker Sea Hawk — UK, Tier IX multirole fighter;
- Hawker Hunter — UK, Tier X multirole fighter.
Planes of Tiers VII–IX can be received during the Operation Holiday Maneuvers event. After the event is over, the full branch will be available for research and purchase, and the Tier X plane will be added to the tech tree. Up to this moment, the Hawker Hunter can be met in battles as an airplane under AI control.
