World of Tanks: Progetto M35 mod 46 – Italian Premium Medium Tank

The first Italian tank coming to the game will be Progetto M35 mod 46, Tier VIII Premium medium tank. The vehicle in-game is a reconstruction of the possible appearance of a vehicle corresponding to General Francesco Rossi’s wishes, who thought the new war would require exclusively light tanks with mass up to 35 tons. The pretty bold design for its time, but it didn’t receive approval and with Italy joining the Main Battle Tank program it was archived.

The tank was introduced to World of Tanks 1.0 Common Test, with the latest pacth, indicating it’s entering it’s final test stages and will most probably be released soon with World of Tanks 1.0.

    1. Its very simple, name Italy has its origins in land of cattle. That it the reason why is the skull there, its small easter egg ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. It’s an aries skull I think.
      Italian tank division it’s called “Ariete” woch means “aries”.

  1. its weird enough to be lovable, also that horns make it look like hardrock style, or we have to expect some spaghetti western mentions ? xD

    1. I dont think so. and 570 m are enough.
      I dont really care on radio range. during leveling tanks I dont buy any radio. result every 100 game, maybe a tank is out of range ๐Ÿ˜€ radio range based on both tanks means 570 m + min. 400 – max 700 m = a radius of 970 to 1.270 meter. that is enough for every map ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. “The vehicle in-game is a reconstruction of the possible appearance of a vehicle corresponding to General Francesco Rossiโ€™s wishes…”

    So it isn’t based on a blueprint?

    1. Based on blueprint and other documents. The tank wasn’t completed, so some aspects are based on writen specifications. (as far as I know)

  3. Just checked it on test server. you are not able to buy them. but you can add them in the comparison tool of wot.

    yes, at the moment you can equip them with a rammer. reload time is sth by 25 sec with rammer instead of 28 sec.
    I think the reason is, it is both an autoloader based on normal reload mechanics. but I dont know. maybe at the end it is a mistake and on live server you are not able to use a rammer anymore.

    1. I was about to go see myself if I could buy it there, good thing I didn’t, thanks for clearing that up.

      Fitting a rammer to it should stay as an option, I think its reload times are a bit high between each shell, so it could be of great help.
