Recently, the folks over at Gaijin Entertainment released their largest content patch to date, "Way of the Samurai", for their popular combat MMO War Thunder. As the name suggests, the main focus of this update introduces us to the Imperial Japanese Army, the newest playable faction added to the game.


Alongside the addition of the Japanese faction, the 1.65 update includes countless other features and improvements. Now that the update has pushed live, Gaijin Entertainment's current plan is to shift aim to polishing existing mechanics and adding more content such as new vehicles, maps and other features.


One of more than 30 vehicles included in the 1.65 update, the Chi-Ha Short Gun is a medium fire support tank designed at the end of World War II, developed by order of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Outfitted with a high-caliber, short-barreled 12cm naval cannon with high-explosive shells, the latest iteration of the tank makes it powerful enough to blow through the toughest of defenses.
