in the latest developer diaries video this was said: " the new mechanics have vast potential and are suitable for more than just medium tanks. we have heavy vehicles too, and we have vehicles that are peculiar in their other in-game characteristics "

will those heavy tanks be italian?

Well, there is the IS-7 and IS-3A which would use similar system, so I think they are more saying that there are heavier vehicles that can make use of the mechanic rather than an Italian heavy tank line.

No. Unless they pull out one out of their a*sses.

 

The thing is, the tier 4-7 in the upcoming line were actually considered as heavy tanks by Italian army, not as mediums. They just happen to be closer to mediums statistically and compared to other tanks by other nations, so they are mediums in-game. Because of that, there are no WW2 era designs to use from, leaving only tier 8-10 as an options. 

 

However, concept of heavy tanks started to die at mid/late 50s, so I doubt that there are any kind of obscure designs or even "ideas" of Italian heavy tanks.

 

A TD or LT line is AFAIK possible for Italy, though.

it had already been decided that the now released italians were going to be mediums, so there's no chance they were talking about them. their statement should be as valid now as it was when the video was released, but you've convinced me those heavy tanks are not italian

I have an idea, lets fix the game instead of introducing new OP stuff that makes old stuff we bought for $$ obsolete.
