Countless battles have already unfolded in the Mediterranean theatre in War Thunder, but with update 1.79 tankers will get the chance to escape the scorching desert heat of North Africa to fight on the first Mediterranean ground map set in the beautiful Italian countryside of the Reggio Calabria province!
The Upcoming War Thunder update, 1.79, brings with it a new map for combined arms battles set on the southernmost part of the Italian mainland. The map is inspired by the settlements and rocky landscape of the Reggio Calabria province overlooking the Strait of Messina.
As such, players will find themselves fighting in and around a quiet Italian settlement situated in a valley surrounded by tall mountains. Numerous winding roads and paths as well as a river on the north of the map break up the meadows surrounding the small settlement. These are home not only to the occasional Italian style villa, orchard and vineyard, but will also make for a prime hunting ground for fast, lightly armored vehicles as well as tank destroyers. The vast open fields provide little cover and are thus highly unsuited for slower vehicles, whereas the more mobile counterparts can make excellent use of the terrain to perform unexpected flanking maneuvers.
