Event Rewards

The main reward of the event will be China's CH-7 Rainbow Heavy Strike Stealth Drone, which is capable of performing long-range bomber functions. The drone has improved robustness to fight close to and over enemy ships. It carries a pair of the latest experimental "Lingyun 1" hypersonic missiles for long-range and painful strikes against the enemy. As it gets closer to the enemy, it will be able to launch 100-kilogram "FT-5" planning bombs. For short-range attacks, the bombshells carry a large number of 50kg CS/BBE2 free-fall bombs, which inflict significant damage on the enemy.

This drone can be obtained by absolutely all players who have completed the Lantern Pass to the end!

As the event progresses, players will have access to another unmanned project, the Chinese Jueying-8 high-speed helicopter. It can carry air-to-air and air-to-surface guided missiles, as well as blocks of 70mm NARs. There are also unique rewards for fans of ship and profile customisation: the Fortune Bringer flag, the Harmony Keeper avatar and the Success lord title.

The Vigorous Sentinel bundle introduces the concept of a new generation battleship for the Chinese Navy - the Huaqing. The ship is equipped with advanced systems for active defence against air threats, where the number of air defence systems on the ship is simply prohibitive. Three points with exclusive pre-installed Phantom 3 laser turrets and excellent targeting range. Three pre-installed "HHQ-16F" silo-based air defence missile systems and 2 slots for free placement of air defence turrets for a total of 5 points. The battleship has a variety of artillery armament. Three H/PJ-100A triple rail guns of 410mm calibre for main damage, four H/PJ-78E rail guns of 203mm calibre and four H/PJ-45E 130mm naval guns with the ability to engage surface and air targets. The ensemble is completed by four pre-installed Type 726-4EX advanced multiple launch rocket systems with increased projectile velocity.

  • You can purchase Huaqing during the event.

  • The maximum discount is 90%. You can get this battleship not more than once during the event.
