So i've kind of been searching the internet for Pictures and Info about the Italian tanks and found a few that actually might be cool in World of tanks.
As you know, each nation has a 'strength' for instance, Germans highly accurate, Brits high ROF, Russians High damage, etc.
well maybe the Italians should have great view range, or penetration but moderate weapons,
i dont want to see another nation with tanks that can spray with their 2-3 second reloads (like the British)
I think since the Italians and Germans shared alot of tanks, i think they should be similar.
I think it'd be cool to have a tank that had high traverse speed, but with a moderate top speed,
so like, if their top speed is 30-40 they reach it a matter of seconds
Here is a sort of tech tree i made up:
Tier 1: Fiat 3000 (light tank) speed: 21 kmh, armor: 16/6/6 , Gun: 16mm, Damage: 15-30
tier 2; Fiat 2000 (Heavy tank) speed: 7 kmh, armor 20/15/12, Gun: 1 X 65mm, Damage: 40-60
Tier 2 or 3: Renault R35 (light tank) speed: 20 kmh, armor: 43/?/?, Gun: 37mm, Damage: 60-80
Tier 3: Carro Armato L3/33 (light tank) speed: 42 kmh, armor: 12/6/6, Gun: 6.5mm (bigger ones compatible), Damage: 70-80
Tier 2 or 3: Carro Armato L6/40 (light tank) speed: 42 kmh, armor: 40/6/6, Gun: 20mm, Damage: 40-70
Tier 4: Fuat M11/39 (medium tank) speed: 32 kmh, armor: 30/14/8, Gun: 37mm Vickers, Damage: 60-90
Tier 4 or 5: Somua S35 (light or medium tank) speed: 40 kmh, armor: 47mm, Gun: 47mm SA 35, Damage: 90-120
Tier 4 or 5: Carro Armato M15/42 (medium tank) speed: 40 kmh, armor: 30/16/16, Gun: 47mm, Damage: 90-107
Tier 5: Carro Armato P 40 (med-heavy tank) speed: 40 kmh , armor: 50/40/40, Gun: 75mm L/34, Damage: 120-175
Tier 6: P26/40 (med-heavy tank) Speed: 42 kmh , armor: unknown, Gun: 75mm+, Damage: 120-165
Tier 7: Panther possibly? speed: 48 kmh, armor: 85/40/40, Gun: 7,5 CM, Damage: 135/175
Tier 8: ?
Tier 10: Leopard 1 (heavy tank) speed: 60 kmh, armor: ?, Gun: 105mm, Damage: 330-400
tier 2: semovente 20/70 (SPG) speed: ?, Armor: ?, Gun: ?, Damage: ?
tier 3: semovente 47/32 (SPG) speed: 42 kmh, armor: 30mm, Gun: 47mm, Damage: 130-200
tier 4: semovente 75/18 (SPG) speed: 32 kmh, armor: 50mm, Gun: 75mm, Damage: 280-500
tier 5: semovente 75/34 (SPG) speed: 40 kmh, armor: 50mm, Gun: 75mm L34, Damage: 600-870
tier 6: semovente 90/53 (SPG) speed: 25 kmh, armor: 40mm, Gun: 90mm, Damage: 900-1300
tier 7: semovente 105/25 (SPG) speed: 35 kmh, armor: 75mm, Gun: 105mm, Damage: 1200-1500
tier 8: semovente 149/40 (SPG) speed: 21 kmh, armor: 14mm, Gun: 149mm, Damage: 1500-1900
these are all just ideas, this is all real information (except the damage part, i made all that up based off artillery in the game)
Please feel free to post new tanks, info, or pictures, this is just a rough outline of what an italian tech tree might look like
some have you have Noticed the Leopard 1, and probally thinking it's too modern, but i was doing some research, and i think (im not sure) the M46 served until the 1990's, and The Leopard 1 was first produced in 1965, and it was the only tank i could find worthy to be tier 10. Please comment, leave your thoughts and input and post some pics if you want (i would've if i could've figured out how to XD) Thank you all -TheBlindsniper[T-K]

You have the right idea.. but.. the guns on these tanks seem... crappy.

The Italians had really crappy steel, hence, really crappy tank armor. Poorly designed based on other nations designs, they were glorified trucks. I read reports of their optics being shot out by small arms, and putting them out of action. There is a reason why the Brits pushed them out of Ethiopia so fast, and the Itys had to call in the German Afrika corp to keep them from annihilation. Italian tanks might be interesting in a low tier premium capacity, but as novelties, not much else....

forget italy go for japan mostly lights but some mediums and such.

though Italians might make interesting
low cost German preniums for lower levels.
