A terrifying howl, the smoke trails of dozens of rockets and an ocean of fire in which enemy troops and fortifications drown. This became one of the most vivid symbols of WW2. German troops nicknamed the BM-13 rocket launcher “Stalin’s organ”, while the Red Army affectionately named it Katyusha. In honour of the 72nd anniversary of victory in the WW2, we are proud to present the legendary Katyusha in War Thunder!

In our game, the BM-13N Katyusha is a collectible vehicle at rank II in the Soviet ground vehicle tech tree. Because it was possible to hit targets at distances of several hundred meters even with a fully lowered frame with launchers for 16 rockets, the player must fight at very long ranges. In addition, the vehicle has its specifics – only two crew members fit into the Studebaker cabin. So the correct tactic whilst driving a Katyusha is to engage the enemy from a long range using cover – the powerful rockets will do the rest. All the remaining rocket loading is done from outside the vehicle. In short, playing on the Katyusha in War Thunder battles isn’t easy, but this wonderful machine will be a true jewel in the hangar of any collector!
