B57 War Thunder

Posted on  by admin
21 August 2014 The Martin B-57 Canberra was officially test flown on July the 20th, 1953, and was the first aircraft of overseas design to be manufactured in the United States since World War I. Based on the English Electric Canberra Mk.2, the US-counterpart received new and more powerful Wright J65-W-5 engines, wing-integrated fuel tanks and only had a crew of two. By the time the B-57s were called into combat, Martin engineers had applied further modifications and customization, like gloss black paint, air-to-ground rockets, a new bubble canopy, and ejection seats.

The B57 in all probability will be after the B-24, but after the F7F is a good way of going up the tree in a good manner, high speed attacker/bomber/fighter, followed by high speed attacker/bomber. It is only a game and people such as the OP are just asking reasonable questions, doing that stupid facepalm thing is a bit sad to be honest.

  • The B-57B in War Thunder. Concluding the legendary US Bomber line within War Thunder, the Martin B-57B jet bomber is the US modification of the famous British aircraft that leads away from the standard gameplay found on most US heavy bombers before it. Placed well within Era V after its predecessor, the B-57A, with a BR of 7.7 in Arcade Battles.
  • Its aircraft were old B-26s, most of which had seen action in World War II. King, who assumed command of the 13th in October 1950, reported, 'No one expected the unit to go to war; no action was taken to prepare for war.” In short, like many other units in the Far East and elsewhere, the 13th was unprepared for combat.

We continue to talk about new vehicles, which will be available in the upcoming update. This time we looking at the B-57B-2 and T-28E.

B 57

During the Korean War, the US Army and Navy needed an aircraft with the same features and capabilities as the A-26, but with a high cruising speed and the ability to bomb from a high altitude. The only company that came close in the development of the aircraft according to these requirements, was the Martin company. But their project was far from its completion. The war was already underway, and the aircraft was needed immediately. As a result, for the first time since the First World War, the US Army purchased an aircraft from abroad, namely the Canberra. But it was not just the purchase of the aircraft, it was the purchase of a license to manufacture it and so, Martin was entrusted this task. Thus the history of the aircraft in the United States began.

The war in Korea at that time was already over, and the aircraft simply had not been produced in time. True to form, the Americans almost immediately started projects to modernize this aircraft. Initially, with the addition of some components and assemblies, navigation equipment, weapons and so on. As a result, we have a classic example of the evolution of the aircraft. Namely the B-57B! It was not just a new version of the aircraft, it created a standard for many years in layout of aircraft of this class. But, most importantly, the vehicle managed to maintain excellent maneuverability, speed, relative ease of piloting and at the same time significantly gained an increase in firepower and tactical flexibility.

This aircraft comes with a non-standard bomb bay door that rotates into an open position before the bombs are dropped. So we had to draw the bomb sight in advance in order to give the bomb bay door animation enough time to complete and only then are the bombs dropped.

The T-28E - a shielded modification of one of the best medium tanks of the 30s. Experience after these tanks were used in the war with Finland, showed the need to strengthen the armour of this machine.

The more powerful armour allows the T-28E to be a strong vehicle at its rank.

The main difference between this three-turreted tank from its predecessor, is in the installation of additional armour shields (full shielding).

On the small turrets, we added shielding from an early variant of armouring for the machine-gun ball mount.
