Gaijin Entertainment announces that a line of the Italian fleet will appear in the online military action War Thunder - more than twenty iconic ships that were in service with the country before, during and after the Second World War. The testing of the line will begin in a few weeks, with the release of the next major update.|
In the update, War Thunder players will be able to appreciate the peculiarities of the Italian approach to shipbuilding and try a variety of combat units - from nimble torpedo and artillery boats to the heavy cruiser Trento.

One set includes the P 420 Sparviero automatic hydrofoil boat with an automatic 76mm cannon, built in the early 1970s and serving in the Italian Navy until the end of the Cold War. In the other - the 1942-model Geniere destroyer with five 120-mm guns and two three-tube torpedo tubes.
The update will also include land, air and sea vehicles from other countries, which will be announced later. To be the first to know what else will appear in War Thunder in the near future, follow the news on the official website.
