I'm trying to buy an La-5, but it doesn't look like the discount will apply. I can see the 50% off special in-game in the specials tab, but in the depot, tech tree, and purchase screen, the U.S.S.R. fighters show up at the full price, which, for the La-5, is 892,000.

I think this is a very common bug that they haven't fixed in forever.

 

But not sure if you will get the discount.  Seems a sad way to promote sales, appearing to be a bait-and-switch.

I think... if you log out of the game and then restart it using the "launch game and clear its cached data" option - dropdown arrow next to the "play" button this will resolve.

 

As others have stated, it's a long known bug, but I am 97% certain if you buy the plane you will get the discount. 

 

BTW, I repurchased the La-5 and I got the discount. I don't know why I sold it, it's a pretty solid plane. Doesn't really carry a battle, but it's a handy little bugger when you get it elite and very nice when specialized.

I believe you to be correct Bobby Flay Grant
but, you have only 2X as many post as battles

I'll take you seriously when you get it to 4X

no... try not, do or do not, there is no try


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

It's been doing that forever, :bajan:and they never corrected or fixed that bug.

But it doers discount your purchase by 50%.or 30%

If you not sure about getting ripped off, write the total number of " silver "you havei n your bank.

Then purchase the plane and check your final total of silver you have left.

You'll see that those " special discounted  plane"  that you just purchased will be only 50% or 30 % off of total cost.

it does work, :teethhappy: but only after you purchase the item. :coin:

Most of the display errors you may experience in the Hangar are purely the issues of cached data. These problems may include the situation when you cannot buy a plane/modules (the game says it needs to be researched although it already is), do not see your equipment or discounts are not displayed and so on. 

 

You can use Launch the game and clear its cached data option in WGC, delete it manually 

(1. Press Win+R.
2. Type "%TEMP%". Press OK.
3. Open the folder "wargaming.net", then - "wowp".
4. Delete the folder "cache".)

 

or use the file from this article.

I forgot to reply to this at the time, but I did buy the plane shortly after posting this, and it was discounted during the transaction, including when it showed how much was spent. Thanks for all of the replies!
