A War Thunder fan leaked classified military documents during an argument on the developer’s message boards earlier this week.

War Thunder is an MMO that bills itself as “the most comprehensive free-to-play, cross-platform, military game dedicated to aviation, armored vehicles, and naval craft.” But according to a user who goes by Fear_Naught, the developers at Gaijin Entertainment apparently missed the mark while designing the Challenger 2.

“As I’ve stated a fair few times now, the complexity of the construction is sometimes difficult to see/show with pictures,” Fear_Naught wrote on July 14. “It is so complex in [the Challenger 2’s] case that I don’t completely blame Gaijin from getting it incorrect. All I try to do is point out the areas where they are incorrect.”

Shortly after, Fear_Naught—who is believed to be a commander in the Royal Tank Regiment of the United Kingdom—uploaded altered screenshots of documents they claimed were from the official AESP, or Army Equipment Support Publication, for the Challenger 2 tank.

The images were meant to be an example of where the developer went wrong on the in-game design but were eventually removed by Gaijin Entertainment due to the classified nature of the information shared.

See, THAT'S the kind of thing that gives Gamers a bad name. Cheating is one thing, but National Secrets are off-limits.  :nope:

After re-reading my original reply, I realize I didn't phrase my attempt at being funny very well. I should have written, "I think this could easily belong in the recently started thread, "Tales of Military Idiots"", which is much nicer and not so unfriendly as what I originally wrote. My apologies for seeming so unpleasant.  :-[

But did it work?  Did Gaijin buff the Challenger 2 or is it still nerfed in favour of Russia Stronk T-90 bias?

The devs left the Challenger 2 as-is.  Which is perhaps just as well.
