Also, the I-21 is not new, it's been around for years, alpha award or something ?  And Grenoli specifically said 'brand new plane' ...

It was a super tester reward. Too OP for a marathon

We'll see, shall we?  First, if there's really a marathon and, secondly, if it's the I-21.  From the point of view of v2. it is a brand new plane.  I could check the API to see if anything else has been added...can I be bothered...we'll see about that too.

Okay, I bit.  I checked the API files from today and compared them with ones from a few months ago.  There are still only 298 plane files, which means if there is a marathon on the way it is either going to be for the I-21 or the WoWP team is no longer updating the API and has stopped using the data structures to which it provides access for assets like the World Of Warplanes website.

Can only confirm what RFC wrote above: 298 planes in the API (checked approx. one week ago), and the I-21 seems to be the only "unknown" plane.

I highly doubt - for several reasons - that WG stopped updating the API.

marathon is confirmed. I-21 can't believe. Plane is ~6 years old. Why now? I think they don't touch a super tester reward plane.

No ? There were other special reward planes like the Pegasus and Me-210 they put in the shop ...

 

Update 2.1.1

New Special Reward Aircraft:

  • The Supermarine Spitfire Vb U.K. fighter. The aircraft is equipped with powerful machine guns and autocannons, and can boast decent maneuverability, boost, and speed;
  •  
  • Beaufighter V — a British Tier V heavy fighter. Equipped with two 20-mm guns and a turret. In general, it is a light version of the regular heavy fighter;
  •  
  • I-21 — a Soviet Tier V lightweight fighter. The aircraft's performance is optimized for Tier V — reduced maximum dive speed, cruise speed slightly decreased, the guns' characteristics in the "Specialist" configuration are similar to those in Stock configuration. The aircraft has a unique feature — five slots for equipment and five slots for consumables.

Back in March 2019 the WoWP released the "Legends" bundle for sale, comprising several aircraft that had previously only been available to alpha or beta testers, and have since sold them again on occasion.  Why would they not recycle the I-21 as well?

and 2 next updates from Grenoli:

 

In the plans - a marathon for a new plane really awaits you, there will be an event in honor of its introduction and other pleasant things. 

source: http://forum.worldof...04#entry2914004

 

Fifth, TI. An event is a mix between events about, for example, Horten, and events a la "Red Comet" - with modes, class BZ and so on. 

 
 
If I understand correctly, we will have marathon for new tier 5 and probably with new (old) modes? This is from google translator. 
@blindfoId, could you confirm or share new hints? :)
 

 

Yes, you understand it correctly. An Op Order for the brand new Tier V heavy fighter and an event to introduce the plane. The event is similar to the ones that are quite familiar to you, Red Comet Event for example.

This plane is a new one, it is not in the game yet, so it is not in the API as well.

Well, bless my soul.  That is welcome news.

 

Except that I hate heavy fighters. :)  Still, there's apparently a bit of life in the old WoWP devil yet.

IMAM Ro.57 or Ro.58, would be nice with an italian plane in the Euro tree.
Please have patience with my spelling/language. English is not my native tounge.
