War Thunder has revealed the details of the Pages of History for January 2023, with a total of eight tasks spread out across the whole month. Finishing each task will give players a trophy and a reward and those able to complete all tasks are awarded with a unique in-game player icon. For January 2023, it's going to be Dmitry Osatyuk.

Dmitry Osatyuk served as the commander of a tank company on the Leningrad Front. On January 12, 1943, his light tank was cut off from his company by three heavy German tanks. Despite the odds, he used himself as bait and led the enemy tanks under artillery fire. He then defeated the enemy in close combat with machine guns, cannon, and even the tracks of his tank.

Because of this, on January 18, his company became the first to meet the troops of the Volkhov Front and opened a land corridor to Leningrad, breaching its blockade. On January 21, his tank was destroyed but he managed to pull the wounded driver from the tank and got him to safety. If that wasn't enough, he went on to continue fighting in another tank.
