Theatres of WWII is an attempt to replicate battles that occured during World War II, Using Warthunder we will pitch historical battles against each other recreating theatres of war that occured. From the Beaches of normandy to the war of the pacific we will attempt to create battles which are better balanced and more historical than what warthunder currently provides.
Each Theatre will be given its own page on This website so as to ensure that all information regarding the battles can easily be found
The website should be updated with all information regarding the battle.
Information should include
- Type of Battle
- Number of opponenents
- Available Vehicles
- Restrictions of vehicles or Ammunition.
The vehicles which will be listed for each Battle will be historical, with ammunition used or vehicle type being true to the battle. (some exceptions may occure where similar vehicles may stand in if it is a asset that is not present in warthunder)
After each mission a debriefing will be posted.
Each debriefing will contain
- List of Players who played
- Role Players took
- Breif Game summary
- Transcript of Battle
- Outcome of battle
