Don't worry, when they include Italian tanks they will include modern tanks like Ariete: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ariete which will pawn your WW2 tanks :P

Because they were (almost all) paper tank fodder.

Yes, they did. They did have tanks and tanketttes. Fiat Ansaldo, Carro Armato etc. But they were inferior to allied designs.
Very weak armour (13-50mm max), and not very good armament.
So tins cans.

Have fun reading:

Tankettes:


The Carro Veloce CV-33 or L3/33 was a tankette originally built in 1933 and used by the Italian Army before and during World War II. Many CV-33s were retrofitted to meet the specifications of the CV-35 in 1935. In 1938, the CV-33 was renamed the "L3/33" while the retrofitted CV-35s became known as "L3/35s."
The original CV-33 carried a two-man crew protected by 12 mm of welded armor and was armed with a single 6.5 mm machine gun.
The L3/33 saw action in China, Spain, France, the Balkans, North Africa, Italian East Africa, Italy, and Russia.

The L3/35 or Carro Veloce CV-35 was an Italian light tank that saw combat before and during World War II. Although designated a light tank by the Italian Army, its turretless configuration, weight and firepower make it closer to contemporary tankettes. It was the most numerous Italian armored fighting vehicle and saw service almost everywhere the Italians fought in World War II but proved inadequate for modern warfare having too thin armor and weak armament of only machine guns.

Light tanks:

The Fiat L6/40 was a light tank used by the Italian army from 1940 and on through World War II. It was designed by Fiat-Ansaldo as an export product, and was adopted by the Italian Army when officials learned of the design and expressed interest. It was the main tank employed by the Italian forces fighting on the Eastern Front alongside the L6/40-based Semovente 47/32 self-propelled gun. L6/40s were also used in the North African campaign.
The official Italian designation was Carro Armato ("armored tank") L 6/40. This designation is understood as follows: "L" for Leggero (Italian: "light"), followed by the weight in tons (6) and the year of adoption (1940).

Medium tanks:

The Fiat-Ansaldo M11/39 was an Italian medium tank first produced prior to World War II. The M11/39 saw service in Africa and Italy (1939-1944). The official Italian designation was Carro Armato ("armored tank") M11/39. The designation for the M11/39 is as follows: "M" for Medio (Italian: "medium"), followed by the weight in tons (11) and the year of adoption (1939).

The Fiat-Ansaldo M13/40 was an Italian World War II tank designed to replace the Fiat L3, the Fiat L6/40 and the Fiat M11/39 in the Italian Army at the start of World War II. The design was influenced by the British Vickers 6-Ton and was based on the modified chassis of the earlier Fiat M11/39. M11/39 production was cut short in order to get the M13/40 into production. The name refers to "M" for Medio (medium) according to the Italian tank weight standards at the time, 13 tonnes was the scheduled weight, and 1940 the initial year of production.

The Fiat M14/41 was a four person medium tank that served from 1941 in the Royal Italian Army. The official Italian designation was Carro Armato M 14/41. The tank was first employed in the North African Campaign where its shortcomings quickly became apparent.

The Carro Armato M15/42 was an Italian medium tank of World War II. Italy begun production on 1 January 1943. By mid 1943, Italy had made 90 of them prior to the Italian Armistice on 8 September 1943. In connection to that event, Italian formations from the 135th Armoured Division Ariete II fought against German troops moving to disarm them in Rome, M15/42s were among the tanks they used in this battle. After that point, Germany confiscated all remaining M15/42s. Under the Germans an additional 28 incomplete M15/42s were produced. Basic armament was one 47 mm / L40 main gun and four 8 mm Breda 38 machine guns. The official Italian designation was Carro Armato M 15/42. This includes the designation ("armored tank"), the tank classification ("M" for medium tank), the weight in tonnes (15), and the year of adoption (1942).
The M15/42 was developed from the M13/40 and the M14/41. It had a more powerful engine and air filters to cope with the harsh conditions of the desert.
The turret had an improved (compared to the 47 mm / L32 on the M13) 47 mm / L40 main gun with an elevation of +20 degrees and a depression of –10 degrees. The turret operated electrically and could traverse 360 degrees. On top of the turret was an 8 mm Breda 38 machine gun for anti-aircraft defense, two more co-axial machine guns mounted the sides of the main gun and two more in the front of the M15/42.

Heavy tanks:

The P40 was an Italian World War II tank design. It was armed with a 75 mm gun and an 8 mm Breda machine gun, plus another optional machine gun in an anti-aircraft mount. The official Italian designation was Carro Armato ("armored tank") P 26/40. The designation means:[citation needed] P for pesante (Italian: "heavy"), the weight of 26 tons, and the year of adoption 1940.
Design had started in 1940 but very few had been built by the time Italy signed the armistice with the Allies in September 1943 and the few produced afterwards were used by the Germans.

While there's not enough italian tanks to complete a tech tree, actually developers can put p40, m15/42 and semovente as premium tanks in game like chinese type59. Besides it would be more fun to roll italian tanks on maps of el halluf and sand river than chinese :)
