As promised by the developers, World of Tanks Blitz expands once more by adding more vehicles to a new technology tree that includes 5 high-level Italian medium tanks.

To celebrate their debut, World of Tanks Blitz announced a partnership with a motor racing legend, a man who knows what it means to drive powerful cars, Giancarlo Fisichella, who is the new brand ambassador.

“I am a fan of racing and everything that manages to give me an adrenaline rush like these vehicles that bring the Italian driving style to the game. My first choice was the Project with self-recharge, combining power and practicality, technologies historical and modern, which I find fantastic, “ says Fisichella. ” I knew the game before I even signed this partnership; it is a game that requires reasoning, strategy and choosing the right tactic for every situation. Just like racing, it’s never easy – it is something deeper than the simple point and shoot on enemy vehicles”.

These new vehicles add a new and unique mechanic: self-recharge. With this new mechanic, players can choose between two different styles of play: “a là Rambo” and fill the enemies with shots before going undercover or slowing down the game and keeping the decisive shots for later.

The Italian tanks that have been added are:

  • P.43 bis, Tier VI medium tank
  • P.43 ter, Tier VII medium tank
  • P.44 Pantera, Tier VIII medium tank (with self-recharge)
  • Standard B prototype, Tier IX medium tank (with self-recharge)
  • Project M40 mod. 65, Tier X medium tank (with self-recharge)

Overall, ten new vehicles (from Tier I to Tier X) will be added as part of the European technological tree, with tanks from Poland, Sweden, and Finland. By climbing the technological tree, players will be able to try tanks built in different countries. In this way, players can switch from one tank to another in a completely natural way.

“There are several nations that have helped us rebuild the technological advances of armored vehicles over the years, but we don’t have the ability to fit them all into a large-scale technology tree,” says Andrey Ryabovol, Product Director of World of Tanks Blitz. “This is why we have created the European tree so that players can try as many vehicles as possible in each country. It is an honor to have the famous Giancarlo Fisichella as a brand ambassador with the publication of these new tanks in the new tree”.

Further additions to the European technological tree are:


  • Vickers Mk.F, Tier I light tank


  • 10TP, Tier II light tank
  • 14TP, Tier III light tank


  • Lake, Tier IV light tank
  • Strv m / 42, Tier V light tank

The new vehicles will be available from 18 September 2019 and many more are planned in the future.
