Gaijin Entertainment has announced that Italian military forces will be recruited into War Thunder with the v1.85 update currently slated for deployment in December. This includes "dozens of Italian ground vehicles" that will help reinforce the Italian Air Force that is already present in the game.
Italian vehicles and tanks will form War Thunder’s seventh national Ground Forces research tree. Historically accurate, playable tanks, self-propelled guns, anti-aircraft vehicles and other ground equipment from the early World War II period to the later stages of the Cold War will form the spearhead of the Italian Ground Forces. Offering some of the most interesting and original vehicles to be found in the game, such as armored cars with deadly recoilless guns and powerful, large-caliber anti-aircraft vehicles, Italian tanks will further greatly enrich the diversity of War Thunder’s ground combat experience.
