Dark War

Intro

These tanks are developed for Dark War, specifically for Italy. Dark War is a fictional world with plenty more conflicts, which just lets me build what i want :D. These tanks span from 1939 to 1949 roughly where Italy was most involved in conflicts. These tanks are 100% fictional inspired by real life Italian armour of the same time period.

Italy in Dark War is part of SF.Nglo, which are allies to another major faction: A.X.I.S

SF.Nglo Consists of Italy, Hungary and Czechoslovakia.

Ready to prove themselves, SF. Nglo threatened Britain with war if a certain amount of Africa wasn't handed over to them. Britain refusing meant that one year later, in 1937, The War for Africa Began.

Italy developed interwar tanks, however settled on the newer and more attractive option provided from Czechoslovakia. In 1939 They placed the first of their own tanks into the war itself, that being the P.2.

In 1940, The War for Africa ended and resumed as now; World War 2.

The P.2 was developed and put into service in 1939. It featured flaws such as a bad transmission, low mobility and heavy weight, however it still made its mark in the Deserts of Africa.

P3 The P. 3 Was the workhorse for the Italian Army during World War II. It improved massively over the previous P. 2, with a an increase of penetration due to the long 7,5 cm cannon, and a new turret shape helped its armour become more effective. The tank improved upon the frontal hull layout.

How To Use

I designed these tanks so they can be placed back into the scenarios. I'd recommend placing the P2 and P3s into the early war scenarios and leave the rest for late war as I don't think any scenario currently uses the mid war era. I also don't recommend using the last two prototypes unless you for some reason want a near impossible tank to kill. The P44 however fits nicely like the King Tiger.

Anyways, hope you like these little designs and have fun with them!
