It has a lot of knight's armor and some handguns up to the late 1600s.

One of the armored suits from the 1640s has rifles, pikes and arrows engraved in the plates. Kinda cool.

More historical film of the Fiat 2000 is emerging. There's some new magazine and stamp artwork as well:

Youtube:

It's just a matter of time before someone finds more video of the Fiat 2000 during parades/festivals where it breaks through the wall, rolls along with the Ft-17 SPGs, or lines up with the French vehicles and Fiat 3000, etc...

 

When the new one is finished we can see it move all we want.

Nice article about the Black Prince on CS:

https://comandosupremo.com/junio-valerio-borghese/

 Books about Operation Gladio always tie him into the stay behind units deployed during the Cold War.

The only book I've read on the subject didn't really impress.

Been playing with my old TT:

TDi1hYU.png?1

 

Got rid of the Hungarian branch and OF-24 cuz it's really not needed at this point. All the M13- M15 tanks occupy tier 3 and the P40 protos are my tier 4. P40 production goes at tier 5. Current tier 8 is an abomination and should just get a complete makeover- a P43bis and a light prem.

 

Also, I haven't really placed the Ansaldo 1927 65/17 in its proper spot.  I just wanted to get it on the board.

I suppose at some point I'll add some wheeled vehicles.

Judging by the paint can next to the tank I think we'll see the green version.

Culqualber & Uolchefit tanks from tank encyclopedia:

http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2-italy-culqualber-and-uolchefit/

 

Isn't it true that the big C & U ran on spirits when the diesel ran out?

If not then I'm spreading misinformation (again):

 http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/604592-what-if-the-ferdinand-is-2-semovente-14940-overan-the-entire-world/page__pid__12126250#entry12126250 

 

BTW, I'll fight and win the whole war with wood burners and spirits and give zero f*cks whether it's do able or not.

^bait^

P.44 ain't match to size of a fakeghettos and finabel fiction scape (area 51 memes would be just at place).

Yay, killing a day worth it. Starting to think, that OTO Kpz can be shifted to a heavy tanks line instead of a TDs:

. It's turret armor doesn't appear to be OP. The top speed might need to be "governed"

Apparently Italy did well in the world wide hacker games called the CY4games- coming in 2nd & 3rd place behind Romania. The event was back in May- June and held in Singapore.

Wonder how they'll do in next month's Troll Olympics? This is one gud poaster that'll be shooting for gold.
