World of Tanks update 1.11.1 is now available, the new content brings a sub-branch of Italian heavy tanks with an auto-reloading mechanic to the game.
Update 1.11.1 features an updated interface that makes the gameplay more enjoyable. Also introduced in the new update is the Platoon 2.0 system, the feature allows players to find gaming sessions without being limited to friends and contacts.
Random Battles are fully automated, the search can be performed using filters. Players can still team up with a friend the old-fashioned way and find a third partner using the new system. Once the Platoon is complete, players will see the allied-vehicles side by side ready for action.
Popular user interface mods were integrated into the new update, players will be able to active ‘Proximity spotting circle’ (showing the radius of ‘unconditional’ spotting on the mini-map) and a repair timer for damaged vehicle modules.

The new Italian heavy branch begins with the Tier VII Carro d’assalto P.88 and consists of four vehicles with great gun depression angles, well-armored turrets, and stylish exteriors.
P.88 Tanks are also able to fire intermittent shots or salvos, with Tier VIII–X Italian heavies you will get a rebate (up to 50%) for the reloading time of your next shell.
Along with the new branch, four sets of battle missions are being introduced, each one dedicated to a separate tank in the sub-branch and giving out an Ancient Roman-themed emblem, inscription, and decal as rewards, with the Rinoceronte, set also yielding the “Testudo Formation” 2D style.
“Around 3 years ago, in May 2018, we revealed the Italian tech tree, with Gianluigi Buffon as an ambassador,” says Max Chuvalov, World of Tanks Publishing Director. “The players spent some time mastering the new mechanic, and they really liked the Italian tanks. Now we’re adding new researchable vehicles that not only complement the Italian tree, but bring their own distinctive features, in order to make the experience even more diverse and exciting. Take these awesome machines for a spin and enjoy the highly-tactical gameplay!”
