[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

The P26/40 is an Italian tier 4 medium tank.

Development of this vehicle started at the end of 1940, but due to difficulties in finding a suitable engine, the first prototype was manufactured only at the beginning of 1942. Mass production was launched in 1943 in Turin. After Italy's capitulation in the autumn of 1943, the tank entered service under the designation Panzerkampfwagen P40 737(i) and was used by the German reserve divisions as permanent fire positions. A total of 100 vehicles were produced.

The P26/40 leads to the P.43.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good top gun with high alpha damage, good RoF and acceptable handling
  • Good protection, comparable thickness to the D.W. 2 plus sloping at front
  • High penetrating HE shell, wrecks soft-skinned vehicles easily
  • Good gun depression & elevation


Cons:


  • Low HP pool for its size (320 with stock turret, and 350 with top turret)
  • Subpar mobility, bad terrain resistance
  • Slow shell velocty on the 75mm guns, head-scratching at mid to long range
  • Low view range and radio range


Early Research

Stock tracks can hold all top modules but not full set of equipments. Select GLD or Vents, and preferrably the Binocs.

Only the radio carries over from the M15/42. Mount that.

Get the 75/32 gun first, so that the inadequate stock gun can be replaced.

Then the tracks; one may now mount full equipments.

Next research the engines, but notice the SPA 342 engine offers little advantage but weighs a lot, skip mounting it and go for the top one;

Research the top turret for overall improvements, finally the gun for a bit more penetration. Though it can be argued that the marginal increase in penetration is not worth the slight loss in DPM.


Alternatively:

One may also opt to mount the Enhanced Torsion Bars for weight capacity:

Only the radio carries over from the M15/42. Mount that.

Get the 75/32 gun first, so that the inadequate stock gun can be replaced.

Next research the engines, but notice the SPA 342 engine offers little advantage but weighs a lot, skip mounting it and go for the top one;

Research the top turret for overall improvements, or the tracks for better terrain resistance;

Finish by researching the top gun.

Historical Info

The P 26/40 was an Italian World War II heavy tank. 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 ("armoured vehicle") P 26/40.

The designation means: P for pesante (Italian: "heavy"), the weight of 26 tonnes, and the year of adoption: 1940. Though physically a medium tank in size, weight, armor, and armament, it was classified as a heavy tank by the Italian military in reflection of its intended support of smaller tanks on the battlefield.

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.
