Greetings, War Thunder community!


Today, we present to you the T-155 Fırtına, a formidable self-propelled artillery system that has the potential to bring devastating firepower and strategic depth to the battlefield in War Thunder.

Historical Background:


The T-155 Fırtına, officially known as the T-155 Fırtına Obüsü, is a Turkish-made self-propelled howitzer that was developed to meet the artillery requirements of the Turkish Armed Forces. It is based on the South Korean K9 Thunder and has undergone significant modifications and adaptations to suit the specific needs of the Turkish military.

The T-155 Fırtına entered service with the Turkish Army in 2001 and has since become a key component of the Turkish artillery arsenal. It has been utilized in various conflicts and operations, including domestic operations against insurgent groups and international peacekeeping missions.



Firepower: The T-155 Fırtına is armed with a powerful 155mm howitzer, capable of launching a wide range of ammunition, including high-explosive (HE), smoke, illuminating, and precision-guided projectiles. This extensive ammunition selection allows for versatile engagement of different targets and scenarios on the battlefield.

Range and Accuracy: The T-155 Fırtına has an impressive firing range of over 40 kilometers, enabling it to strike targets at a considerable distance. It utilizes advanced targeting systems, including GPS-guided munitions, to ensure precise and accurate fire, increasing the effectiveness and impact of its artillery strikes.

Rate of Fire: The T-155 Fırtına boasts a rapid rate of fire, capable of delivering multiple rounds within a short period. This high rate of fire allows for the saturation of enemy positions, suppression of enemy movements, and the ability to provide intensive fire support to friendly forces.

Protection: The T-155 Fırtına features armored protection to safeguard its crew from small arms fire and shell fragments. It is equipped with NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) protection systems, ensuring the safety and well-being of the crew in hazardous environments.

Mobility: Powered by a high-performance diesel engine, the T-155 Fırtına exhibits excellent mobility, allowing it to traverse various terrains and quickly relocate to different firing positions. Its mobility ensures that it can keep up with the pace of the battlefield and provide timely and effective support to friendly forces.

Crew and Capacity: The T-155 Fırtına is operated by a crew of five members, including a commander, gunner, loader, driver, and ammunition handler. It carries a significant amount of ammunition, allowing for sustained operations and reducing the need for frequent resupply.

Its long-range capabilities, precision-guided ammunition, rapid rate of fire, and versatility make it a highly valuable asset on the battlefield. The addition of the T-155 Fırtına not only enhances the gameplay experience but also adds depth, variety, and authenticity to the overall War Thunder game world.

  Definitely +1, but I suggest you to split it into two suggestion as there is way too much differences between Fırtına-I and Fırtına-II to wrap them as single vehicle. 

yes, I know, I also suggested the Firtina II, which is on standby.
