The Event Introduction
"Gaijilla!" was an event held on the 1st April 2014 which saw the introduction of the Gaijilla snail beast. The event consisted of an arcade air battle in which the main objective was to defeat the gigantic snail. Both teams while having a common objective were still competing against each like a regular air battle.
It was an allusion to the Godzilla movie that aired in May 2014.
Featured Japanese Mega-Machine
At the end of March 1945 the Burmese National Army engaged Japanese occupational forces in fierce combat, and with the support of the Allies, soon liberated their country from invading forces. The Japanese army was unable to turn the tide of battle despite deploying their experimental war machine Daikaidzu "Gaijilla" GD11a, which the natives called "giant monster".
Gaijin Entertainment announces that in honor of this historic encounter, War Thunder will soon be introducing a new experimental unit for Japan.
Unlike most Japanese combat vehicles, the new model is slower to manoeuvre in battle, but with regard to its durability and ammunition, it has no rivals.
Its attack is a deadly electric beam shot at buildings and ground targets from its tentacle eyes.
