The rally which takes place from April 18th until May 2nd, running from Moscow in Russia to Torgau in Germany, is dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory Day and Elbe day.

This meeting has been deemed as one of the final phases of World War 2 and well represents the union and coming together of the Allied forces.
CEO of Gaijin Entertainment, Anton Yudintsev, had this to say on the announcement:
“Elbe day is one of the most significant moments in history of the Allied coalition, it symbolizes the union of the East and the West, the great Victory we are all proud to share. War Thunder is played all over the world, including Russia, the USA and United Kingdom, so we are very enthusiastic about this international rally. Our game also unites players and fans of military history regardless of borders and distances”.

Gaijin Entertainment has invited all War Thunder players to visit the various events, being held along the route of the rally, to get a chance to take a photo with the War Thunder car, meet with Gaijin Entertainment and get a souvenir from the rally.
