These nimble scouts are pretty quick and when compared to other light tanks in the game, it’s their relatively good armour which sets them apart.

Special Event

The big birthday bash kicks off with a special event where tankers will be tasked with hunting down a unique Tier VI tank, the P.43/06 Anniversario.
