While the Italian Army tank crews of World War II were undoubtedly brave in combat, they lacked decent, modern day equipment and were hampered by extremely poor leadership.

  1. i love roleplaying as kid with CV33 in war thunder lol, just following Heavy tank around, and giving fire support that usually just disable enemy track and cannon, or as decoy so the heavy tank can easily shoot enemy back turret

  2. As a person with Sicilian heritage, I simply must put in the good old joke of saying how many gears an Italian tank has. The way my grandfather was told it, was that it had 1 forward and 6 reverse. But I guess it's still funny saying 4.

  3. WHAT WAS THAT THUMBNAIL.
    America tanks: can survive another tank shot and is normal sized.
    Italian tank: Litrally 10 cm high and 90 cm wide with a man standing on it

  4. Us army:
    -Hey you are going to face panzers, take anti tank, bazooka, granades, moltov and additional explosives.

    – Hey you are going to face Italian tanks pick some stones from backyard and go….. Hurrey you got some eay job buddies
