War Thunder background
Italian ground vehicles in the update 1.85
Attention! Outdated news format. Content may not display correctly.

We would like to share with you a major announcement! Now, all nations in War Thunder will have their own ground forces branch. In update 1.85, we will introduce the Italian ground vehicles research tree, and so you will soon be able to experience the distinguished originality of Italian tanks and armoured vehicles!

Early and mid-rank ground vehicles are of familiar design - such as the P40, already well-known to players. However, you will also find some unusual ones, such as the Breda 501 SPG, which has a considerably powerful gun, but with a limited horizontal drive; the vehicle is built to be based on the three-axis truck chassis.

Higher ranks introduce armoured cars with recoilless guns, extremely powerful SPAA’s, and tanks, which are not inferior in their combat effectiveness to the tanks of the other nations in-game.

Thus, Italian armoured vehicles are sure to bring more diversity ro ground battles in War Thunder - Are you itching to try the Italian ground force vehicles out? Well then, be sure to hurry in becoming one of the first testers!

The first players to test Italian armoured vehicles will be those who come to own one of the Italian ground vehicles packs - you may also become one!
