So last time i found some small, weak tanks that would be nothing above tier 5.
Here are some that would be teir 4+
Carro Armato Celere Sahriano Medium Tank
(Its named Sahario because it was inspired by British cruiser tanks and was used in North Africa)
Engine: 270h.p. Fiat Gasoline Engine
Weight: 18 tons
Armament: x1 47mm gun (they also intended it to use a 75mm)
Armor: a guess would be between 50-70mm
http://utenti.quipo..../celere-s-3.jpg A tier 5 light?
It would be the Tier 5 heavy tank.
It has an L/34 75mm cannon
Armor: Turret: 50/40/40mm
Hull Armor: 50/40/40mm
It is sloped so it would provide some bouncing.
Speed: 40kph (25mph)
This one took a LOT of looking to find.
I found the ONE AND ONLY SPG Italy EVER made during WW2
The Semovente da 149/40
Height: 6ft 7in.
Lenght: 21ft 8 in.
Width: 9ft 10in.
Main Armament: 149.1mm (149mm rounded)
The Italian Army was not far behind the Germans in realizing the need for assault guns and developed a string of vehicles that outwardly resembled the StuG III. These Italian assault guns were produced in appreciable numbers for they were better armored and quicker to produce than the contemporary Italian tanks.
Suspension: Leaf Spring
Speed: 21.75mph (35kph)
Tier 5 or 6 arty?
The Semovente 105/25
Weight: 15.8 tons
Crew: 3 (commander, gunner, radio operator)
Main Armament: 105mm L/25 with 48 rounds
Tier 6 TD?
Weight: 17 tons
Main armament: 90mm
Crew: 5 (commander, 3 gunners/loaders)
Tier 5 TD?
Armor: 15-75mm (front 75mm)
Main Armament: 75mm L/46
Speed: 24mph (38kph)
Tier 4 TD?
Italy didn't make all that many tanks (only about 18 really produced)
I could go on with TD's till tier 1 but that would take a while. so there ya go.
Some Italian tanks that could be here in WoT some day...

Assault Guns; [Some models not listed - Just giving an idea]
All Stugs [3 & 4 Series]
Su-85, 100 and 152's [Variations of these in game - isu152 for instance]
T28 & T95
JG's [4, Panther and Tiger]
Tank Destroyers; [Some models not listed - Just giving an idea]
M8, M10, M36, M18 [and the prototypes T28 & T25]
All Marder Series
Su-76 & Su-85b

You get the idea. If it was barely armored, open topped and easy to crank out production wise it was usually just a Tank Destroyer which more often than not just meant Anti-Tank gun mounted on tracks. The fully armored beasts with attention paid to service viability are the Assault Guns meant to blister the on coming enemy and survive some salvo's from the enemy.

Anyway, tl;dr, more tanks is more tanks. Bring em on I say. From what I've read though, Italian tanks were lolbad. Maybe some alpine specialized arty with ridiculous firing arcs?

Maybe they do have something obscure, somewhere in some archive hidden away from sight. When I researched Italian ships for an undisclosed MMORPG naval warfare game I had to do some serious digging and lots of number fudging (since that game liked historical inaccuracy). WoT isn't cut from the same rock....at least it's cut from a very different part of the rock. They number fudge, but that's simply for the arcade aspect, and every tank get's a nice rub down with the "Rag of survivability"
What WoT doesn't do, and something I actually respect them for, is just flat out, make up a tank. When searching I found plenty of plausible Italian tanks that could fit the bill, all fan made to look and feel Italian. But that's not WoT is about. Maybe Italy does have something but it would take a fluent italain researcher with a good knowledge of post war tank designs to finish it.....so my suggestion would be, don't worry about the little stuff. Find the end game content, as I'm guessing that's what the Dev team couldn't find either, and why they have said italy will be pan-europe tree.

It is the Semovente 105/25. It had a 105 mm cannon, with 35 K/mh top speed with a petroleum 192 HP engine the site doesn't specify. so lets say 75 mm all around and the statsfor the gun could be RoF 20.57 with a penetration of 89 with HE rounds and 179 with AP rounds.

So, you just might get an Italian tree.
