Italian Heavy Tanks
Four menacing brawlers from Tier VII to Tier X are ready to storm the battlefield, so take them for a spin:
- Tier VII: Carro P.88 – 57,750 XP
- Tier VIII: Progetto 54 – 87,200 XP
- Tier IX: Progetto 66 – 150,190 XP
- Tier X: Rinoceronte – 209,860 XP
You will need 57 750 experience to unlock the new Tier VII heavy tank Carro P.88 and start your journey with the Italian heavy tanks! Remember, the Carro P.88 doesn’t feature the new improved autoreloading mechanic, the new mechanic is only introduced with the Progetto 54 at Tier VIII.
All Italian heavies will boast good gun depression angles and great universal guns. Dynamic and manoeuvrable, they will survive by evading enemy fire, rather than using their armour. But their most distinctive feature is the modified autoreloading mechanic implemented from Tier VIII onwards, which sets them apart from their Italian medium brethren.
The modified mechanics transform the rather standard alpha damage and DPM values of the Italian heavies into truly unique advantages, making them extremely versatile and dynamic in battle. Here’s how the modified mechanic works.
