The Lion is an Italian Tier X medium tank. Looking at the vehicle, you might notice that it resembles its researchable counterpart, the Progetto 65. However, a closer examination of the vehicle’s characteristics reveals that, whereas it’s more efficient to fire only the first shell in the magazine of the Progetto 65, when playing in the Lion, it’s best to fire up to the penultimate shell, due to the reload times of 13/10/8/21 s. To get the maximum damage per minute, you will need to fire the first two shells, but hold off on firing the third shell until the magazine reloads. You should avoid firing the last shell, as this will cause the vehicle to be idle for 21 seconds. Instead, try to restrain yourself and count your shells. The reload time between shots inside the magazine is 5 seconds, which will help you keep your cool.
This vehicle’s main role is to support allies.
