New Unit: Elite OH-58F

New this week in Thunder Run and Days of Valor:

Elite OH-58F

Starting today, players can obtain blueprints for the newest Thunder Run aircraft, the Elite OH-58F.

This Elite “F” variant of the classic OH-58 is upgraded with much greater HP and damage, making it tough and deadly. The Elite OH-58F is strong enough to go toe-to-toe with other high-end air units.

Good hunting, Commanders!

Thunder Run: New Vault Building

Thunder Run: New Vault Building

New this week in Thunder Run:

The Vault

Protect resources from your enemies! The Vault prevents attackers from looting a portion of the Fuel, Supply, and Hardware in your Depots (Hardware protection starts at Level 7 and up).

The Vault is now available to all Thunder Run players. Open your Buildings -> Resources menu to start construction!

Technical Notes:

  • The Vault is indestructible, and does not count towards Base Damage %.
  • The Vault protects Depot resources only – uncollected resources in your Yards can still be looted by attackers.

Good hunting, Commanders!

More Hardware Loot & TOC Officer Improvements

New this week in Thunder Run and Days of Valor:

More Hardware Loot

This week’s Ambush! enemy (Single Player only) features larger and more frequent Hardware loot than before.

TOC Officer Cost Reduction

The Hardware cost to upgrade TOC Leaders between Levels 1-20 has been reduced by 33%.

TOC Officer L21+ Trade-Ins

Level 21+ TOC Leaders can now be traded in for a partial return of the Hardware used to upgrade them.

Didn’t get the type of TOC Leader you were hoping for in the L20->L21 upgrade step, when bonus stats are randomized? Trade in the unwanted Leader! Move him into your Warehouse, click his icon, and use the “Trade In” option.

The amount of Hardware you will get for the trade-in appears at the bottom of the information tooltip on the TOC Leader item.

Notes:

  • TOC Leaders can only be traded in at Level 21 and higher. Level 20 and below are not eligible for trade-in.
  • The amount of Hardware returned is limited by your Hardware Depot storage space. Any returned Hardware that does not fit in your Depot storage will be lost – so check your Depots before trading!

Good hunting, Commanders!
