The Axis is growing larger in War Thunder with today's announcement that Italy will be added as the game's sixth playable faction. Italian forces will join up in the Regia Aeronautica update. Players will be able to gain access to the Italian vehicular tree as well as several aircraft from light bi-planes to jets.
“At the end of last year, with the addition of Japanese Ground Forces, we completed the tasks that we set ourselves for War Thunder’s beta test and officially released the game. Now, all of the game’s nations are represented with more than 800 aircraft and ground vehicles in total, and early testing of Naval Forces is full steam ahead. As promised, we have continued to develop the game, starting with our efforts to add a new country to the game,” says Kirill Yudintsev, Creative Director of Gaijin Entertainment.
The addition of Italian vehicles and aircraft marks the first new country added to War Thunder since launch.
