US 20mm Cannons are out of control in War Thunder! With Winds of Change update, the USA 20mm AN/M2 got a HUGE buff to 38mm of penetration!
US 20mm buff means that you can penetrate most tanks from top down and even at some pretty drastic angles. You can top down Panthers, Tigers, T-34 and even Sherman tanks.
US Mains in War Thunder can now rejoice as they now have something almost as effective as 30mm HVAP from the Mk103 cannons from Germany and the 37mm and 45mm cannons from Russia planes.
I really don’t think it’s too over the top but I wouldn’t complain if it lost a few extra mm of penetration!
Oh, this buff is SO good… I don’t think you even need to carry bombs anymore!
EPIC DOUBLE INTRO (00:00)

DO YOU THINK THERE’S A MORE RELAIBLE CAS OPTION THAN THIS THING AROUND 6.0?! WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE INSTEAD?!

@the_big cheese you mean adequate?
I feel like the a7m1 would be my choice. It only has two rockets, but it’s ability to turn on a ballpoint pen allows for quick repeated battery.
Killed a me 262 in the AM-1
Problem is the repair cost of that thing is like 11k so if I remember correctly
I really love how they introduce premium vehicles, that preform really well, get people to buy them, then nerf the living dogsh*t out of them to make them useless. Pretty f*cking scammy.
I really like War Thunder, the only thing I hate about it is how the game is literally only fun in a handful of vehicles out of the hundreds in the techtrees. Some things like the Panthers and Tigers are just kind of pointless to play imo. I wish the balance was better in this game, I’m not expecting to be slaughtering low tier Shermans in my axis tanks, but honestly fighting anything with HEATFS is just absolute bullshit in a WW2 heavy tank, and not just German ones. There needs to be a better way of balancing for a game like this. Oh, also, spawn camping is fucking AIDS and I hate when games devolve into it. I’m really not surprised so many people just ditch games and go back to hangar after 5 minutes.
It’s okay, Gaijin will listen only to the worst decisions players suggest
Fs in the chat for milespetiles who you killed at least twice lmao
It’s fine the way it is, let the Allies have something
Fighting multiple of these on the enemy team just makes we want a tank-only mode all the more.
A wee like, and a wee comment. Love your content!!!
And this Ladys and Gentleman is the reason why you protect your aa players and dont fucking RAM them
lol i can do the same thing ina p47 🙂
ok that buff is too much
As an old air warrior veteran I simply dont get the attraction of so saccharine a flight model as the simplified mouse aim used for flying. It offers uber accuracy to planes that simply didnt exist with normal flight controls.
It’s ‘realistic battles’ – should probably require ‘realistic controls’ for airplanes if you choose to use them in battle. This setting is a step under “sim” and the main difference in realistic mode is you dont have to use trim or engine management, but the instructor aids are all turned off and you need to use a joystick.
I also mapped all of my tank controls to a thrustmaster t1600 so there’s no switching in battle if I decide to take a plane. Throttle controls fwd / rvs – rocker is for steering, the joystick handles the turret and views and weapons. it’s a trick HOTAS setup for tank battle.
ayo? thats me at 0:14
Woah, ground battles have a really high number of flying units aint it, just as many as ground units in air battles
Omg absolute carnage with the rockets
This makes it worth the repair price lol
@OddBawZ – that pen buff hit the XP-55, too! How about a new video with that baby?
So apparently these 38mm pen ground belts are also on the cannon stang sitting at 3.3. so m4 or m10 +cannon stang carnage?
doesn’t the us 30 mm in the p-39 only pen 30 mm lol 20 mm better cas than 30 mm
Lord, congratulating the enemy for a good shot. I wonder how you stay so peacefully focused.
I’d say the AU-1 is the best Corsair considering its massive payload and now the gun buff
This is depressing to watch.
I really love the corsair thats at 4.7 and the 6.0 is just a pure upgrade. After spending a waste of time and lions on the P-61, Im finally starting to work on this plane. Can’t wait to use it in 2 months because I mainly play Ground RB and you get jack for RP in planes.
best cas is the f89b with armoured targets, shoot 100 rounds from 2.5k and kill almost anything in a second
Every german cas and fighter “ha, weak”
I main IL-2M. Close air support is all I do.  *has 1000 air kills in the IL-2M*
Oh no muh US cannons do stuff to German tanks, Germany clearly suffering. Plz triple German cannon pen and ammo count and lower all cannon armed German aircraft by at least 1.0 BR to (over)compensate.
I have bad luck I’m getting put in 7.3 with my jumbo I don’t know what I did
First thing they need to actively prevent is Russian and Chinese players coming on to North American servers just to get away with hacking and not get banned.
Well done Bawz, very good editing and production. Had me emotionally invested in your intro…Love your content. Your living my dream as I love this game and play it daily, and now I watch your content, Daily… Keep it up! Thank you!
Brah but puma is op
How can anyone play this game in these past 3 months and unironically think “wow this game is so balanced and skill-based!”
Interesting how they massacred any German cannon and buffed other planes… hmmmm coincidence?
Edit: they upbred the Ferdinand for no reason it wasn’t even good, but they out of nowhere a premium with more armor comes out at that same br! Can’t be coincidence can it?
I never feel bad about using this thing because of the number of do-335s around.
I really do like your intros. Its definitely a strong spot you have. Keep up the good work 👍
Someone had to make an edit of all of these epic intros
Ahhh, yes: Gaijin mechanics.
I stopped playing this game shortly after emptying an entire stock of 20mm into a PATROL BOAT (which still survived), in that old (discontinued?) ‘Island’ map (you remember, that gigantic volcanic island with all those wonderful tunnels/holes for pouncing/sniping/ambushing, esp. on that once-amazing NIGHT MISSION!
I tried repeatedly over the following years, to re-engage with this game, because I LOVED it so much (circa patch 1.23 days). Sadly, they succeeded in utterly ruining it, so…
Naval battles just suck! Aviation is hardly better unless you are lucky. I just stick with ground RB because it is somewhat balanced. I completely understand quitting war thunder though because I had a half-year to whole year break from war thunder
Talking about this, prompted me to DL the game (again), and give it another try.
(curse my curiosity!)
“Game of ‘Pilot Sniped’…”
F. U. Gaijin.
My takeaway from this vid: …damn, I really need to learn to use rockets…
Always nice seeing a US vehicle doing well
Buff too strong? Naw fuck them Germany suffers types
That’s a lot of good tank play getting ruined 😐
Now that was a heck of an intro.
that intro though, that is amazing
50cals still out perform hispano in ground attack never mind anm2, its pure bullshit one way or the other. im fuckin sick of p47s as well
And we still have the Ki-102 otsu with HE only for its 57mm round and 6mm of pen and ke-45 hei/Ki-108 kai with 3mm with its 37mm gun
Can’t even understand a word you’re a saying
godddayumn that intro really got me. you absolute jester
Just saying the 50 calls got buffed so hard that it can now reliably pen panthers from the top
how can you drop 1 bomb at a time? ive been trying to find someway to do that for a while 😅
Yeah let’s nerf the F4U cause guns are performing well but let’s not nerf the bmp 2m at 8.7 that’s more lethal by itself then my top tier American lineup.
