Italy is the currently newest nation presented in World of Tanks, after Poland. Currently there is an end-tier medium line of 11 regular vehicles, and a premium one.
Tiers I–VII retrace the history of the nation’s tankbuilding, from Italy’s early tank designs at lower tiers through to post-WWII machines at mid-to-higher tiers. These vehicles generally has acceptable protection and decent firepower, yet the mobility leaves much to be desired. It would be best to play them as supporters, much resembling the German mediums at tier. But the cherry on the cake are Tiers VIII–X with a new gun system, a hybrid between an autoloader and a regular gun. This Italian revolver of sorts, called “autoreloader,” can automatically reload a shell in the drum even when the drum is not empty yet. Combined with the great gun handling and good mobility, they could perform no less effective than Czech or French autoloaders, but easier to handle. Also as a common trait of post-WWII western tank designs, they possess good if not great gun depressions, which can be advantageous on hills or slopes.
