It’s been several weeks since WG Fest, where we announced a new nation to join the ranks in 2018. We can’t keep it to ourselves anymore, so please welcome the Progetto M35 mod 46, the future member of the upcoming Italian line.

For historical accuracy these tanks will be good for seal-clubbing low-tier Abyssinians but will change sides when faced with any reasonable opposition. On the high tiers when you dab the 2 key, you will automatically join the other team.

The auto-reloading cyclic gun should be interesting to use.

I'm looking forward to the "reloaders" I love the TVP and these in my opinion are a lot like that tank. Should be interesting and I really am looking forward to them.

Dammit, when do we get the BOLOs?!?  I've been waiting forever WG.  Everyone knows that blueprints, mockups, and even a soft-steel prototype are kept in a special bunker under that Soviet tank museum.  Just get them in-game already...

Are crews more susceptible to injuries since they used riveted construction long after other nations abandoned it?

So WG shamelessly copied AW's auto-refill mechanics. Not a bad idea, but careful with balancing. It'll be very easy for this to render existing guns obsolete.

why the heck should we be adding a new nation.   way too many tank types now and way to few old maps to play them on.  The new reloader seems like a comprimise for those who [edited]about autoloaders, both lovers and haters.  

if wargaming was interested in better play they would create a mechanism that would  allow you to pick your tank based on what type of map your battle was going to be fought on.     There are certain maps that I would never bring a light tank to, others are better suited to slow tds, while tight street city maps are condusive to heavy fights.  create an interface that lets us select 4 tanks to be used in a battle, then once the countdown begins ( which would show the map) you have the duration of that countdown to change to one of the 4 tanks selected.  Limits could be set where all 4 tanks must be of the same tier.  Current match making of 3 wide tiers would be little affected.  We would still have the 3 tier spread.  

Another novel idea is is that matchmakiing have the added attribute of Personal Rating.   Making it so each tank must have the same personal rating as the oppenents  tanks.  This would eliminate seal clubbing (which happens continuously)and keep the unicums out of games that first time players are in.

Question: Are they going to change some of the tanks currently in the game with similar tech as auto-reloaders? exp: Is3-A? or is it going to be a nation specific mechanic?

So, is this coming even before Polish tree?  If so, I wish we could hire Italian girls before 9.22 update...

Not another damn autoloader. If you are gonna do this silly stuff, then buff the damn Tiger 1. The most feared tank of WW2 and its gotta face tanks made 10-15 years later. STUPID. How a Tiger 1 and a T-29 end up on the same battlefield is beyond wishful thinking, its a fantasy. And to put it up against tier IX heavies is a freaking JOKE. You guys spend all this time and effort on making historically accurate looking tanks, then place them against tanks that weren't even dreamed of at the time they were made. I started playing this game years ago because of the allure of playing a Tiger. I soon found out its a PAPER Tiger. Same with the 131 and the HT-6, they should NOT be seeing the armor on tier VIIIs. You get into a tier VIII battle in those and you just better go hide. Same in a Tiger 1 at tier IX. 

And now you want to make another tank line. As an autoloader. May as well allow 5 arties per game. When are we going to see the"Tank Girl" tank?

 

Tiger rant over. You wanted feedback, you got it.

The premium they demonstrate doesn't seem too bad.  Three "ready" rounds, of apparently 90mm ish(240 alpha).  Interclip if fully emptied would be what? 8+11+14 ish based on their preliminary numbers?  That's 33ish seconds. 

 

So, to list that out.

240 alpha, 8 seconds in single shot mode (1800dpm)

2.5 seconds for 2 in auto mode, 19 second complete refill (1340 dpm, 480 burst)

2.5+2.5 seconds for 3 in auto mode, 33 second complete refill  (1140 dpm, 720 burst)

 

 

compare that to the T69 (autoloader) or pershing (single loader)

240 alpha, <7.7 seconds before rammer (1830 dpm before rammer)

2+2+2 seconds for 4 rounds, 26 for refill (1800 dpm, 960 burst)

 

or you could compare it to the lorr 40t (autoloader) and indian panzer (single loader)

240 alpha, 6.9 seconds before rammer (2086 dpm before rammer)

2.5+2.5+2.5 seconds for 4 rounds at 300 alpha (1680 dpm, 1200 burst)

 

all values are approximations, and of course the reload times on the italian tank are still in testing.  also don't know if rammer or crew skills will have any effect on the Italian tank.

 

Could be interesting.
