Gaijin Entertainment is pleased to announce that the second wave of Closed Beta program for Ground Forces Expansion for military MMO game War Thunder, has started today. Selected players, who participated in various daily in-game challenges during November, will continue to receive invites to Closed Beta during second wave.

All of these packs also grant access to the Closed Beta, and they’ll remain available for purchase until Open Beta starts.
