More classified military intel gets posted to War Thunder forums, because that’s just what happens now

Amazingly—and I mean that without an ounce of hyperbole, I am amazed—it has happened again. For the third time, according to the UK Defense Journal (opens in new tab), classified military documents have been posted to the forums of War Thunder, Gaijin Entertainment’s free-to-play vehicular war game, because a player got pissed off that some tiny aspect of the simulation was wrong.

The latest leak of classified military intel onto a videogame forum—a genuinely wild sentence to type, believe me—is an image of the DTC10-125 tungsten penetrator and a technical doc describing its specifications. Unlike the previous two leaks, which revealed information about the British Challenger 2 (opens in new tab) and French Leclerc (opens in new tab) main battle tanks, this one is about Chinese hardware: The DTC10-125 is a high-velocity, non-explosive 125mm sabot round fired by the Chinese Type 96 and Type 99 MBTs, described by the UK Defense Journal as “one of the PLA’s [People’s Liberation Army’s] main tank killing rounds.”

What makes the whole thing even more mind-boggling is that according to Nobleman Swerve on Resetera (opens in new tab), it’s possible the commission of this extremely serious high crime was entirely unnecessary.
