I think those Finabel designs originate from here:

http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/616708-finished-italian-tech-tree-ww2-post-war/page__st__20__pid__14046553#entry14046553

It looks like unsourced pages downloaded to pinterest. I'll consider it a hoax unless someone proves otherwise.

It's a shame because I like the turrets on some of those. I would combine the Lancia and OTO model A for alternate suspension and gun and put the Ansaldo in reserve. Game doesn't really need another oscillating turret with an auto- loader

There's a source mentioning the consideration of the 90/71 on the P.43bis. so yes Merry XMas I suppose if it can be verified.

It would in my opinion be preferable to a strange Panther hybrid thing. It wont replace the M.47 and nor should it. The OTO M47 is a distinctively different and interesting beast in its own right but if IT were to fill tier 8 it would more a US vehicle than an Italian one even if WG is playing fast and loose these days. An Italian M.26 Pershing would fit but would be dull even with a different gun, and the minor hull changes it got.

So far this is the most likely candidate.

 

Did Imperator see your post with the P43 90/71? He has a lot of catching up to do.

From: Overvalwagen/Nowa Technika Wojskowa 7/97/Italianisti D/G

A single Fiat 3000 M.21 provided/given to the Ethiopian Emperor in 1925 followed in 1930 by 3 more being directly purchased.

All vehicles later recaptured by Italian forces in Addis Abeba by May 1936- no known modifications

 

1925 - 1 x Fiat 3000A

1930 - 3 x Fiat 3000B

This, however, is 100% Italian. Out of WoT date and quite patently not a tank.

Remote weapons system.

Still not as cool as the Gorgona though
