It’s D-Day. June 6th, 1944. 80 years ago today, Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy to take back France. As part of Operation Overlord, more than 150,000 Allied soldiers landed at Normandy, first by parachutes and gliders and then under the cover of aircraft and artillery and from transport ships. In total around a million people were involved in this operation.

We’re honoring the largest seaborne invasion ever today on its 80th anniversary. Take a look at the various different activities and discounts that we’ve created dedicated to this day.

Magazine2, I think it needs to be said, gaijin is GOATED for the remembrance of the fallen, not many other video games remember in events or anything unfortunately.

Will the decals titles be given to people that already have all the vehicles or are we out of luck?

eld0radzio, There is a difference between owning a pack with a vehicle and only owning a specific vehicle from a pack (because you get that vehicle from an event/trophy etc). You can check your purchase history on your profile here: https://store.gaijin.net/user.php?skin_lang=en&view=purchases (log in, click button "Show me all purchases" )

eld0radzio, but you don't receive anything more than the vehicle itself, no extra premium, no SL or GE so its just better to go to the game and buy it from the tree for GE

If we already own all the vehicles in these packs, is there still a way for us to obtain these titles and decals?

No D-day battles for sim & RB... all I want for D-day is them battles - really missing out on that, allow people to play these vehicles in a cool game mode with a D-day theme and they would buy them more for sure. Reenactment is valuable.

What if one already owns the vehicles of discounted bundles, are the decals/titles unobtainable?

compressedmilk, What pack is it from? It doesn’t show as a link, and I don’t remember it being a pack.

The decal and flag are nice, but I was really hoping you would have brought back the M4 "Hurricane" camouflage, as it was one of the tanks that stormed Normandy. And we have no way of obtaining that camo. Also there are no historical WW2 camo's for the M4 Sherman.

Are there any plans to make the titles and/or decals available to players that already own all of the vehicles in a pack?

Brempel

Brempel, It would appear that I am in fact blind and I missed the section saying that it's possible to get them, please disregard my statement.
