Lion – the new ten of Italy with the charging mechanism in World of Tanks

UPD 17:46 (MSC): The correct order of each projectile is set. The fastest DPM will be on 2 shells.

Lion (Italy, ST-10, stock, 4-shot magazine with recharging system).

Yesterday we already briefly described the tank. Today we’ll show you the full specifications.
The tank has the parameter “Premium”, but this will change for the release.

Interesting fact: the developers already talked about this tank 5 years ago in the Developer’s Answer: link.
Even then they said that the OF-40 is too modern for our game, and the early version of the Lion (Leone) fit well into the concept of the game. So we waited for this tank after so many years.

Since the Lion is mechanical, we show its gun characteristics separately:


  • Average damage: 420
  • Average armor penetration with Armor-piercing projectile: 258
