July 1943 was a significant period for tank production industry during World War II; that month serious changes took place in Soviet, German and American tank parks. And actually, July was always full of events: soviet medium tank T-28 was used in combat for the first time; T-34 mass production was started; last mass PzIV Ausf H was produced; Stug-III Ausf F was rearmed with 75mm StuK 40 L/48; medium tank M4 Sherman was used in battle in Europe for the first time; tank destroyer M10 Wolverine was used in battle in Europe for the first time.
But the most significant event, which took place in July 1943, was Operation Husky.
"The Allied invasion of Sicily, codenamed Operation Husky, was a major World War II campaign, in which the Allies took Sicily from the Axis (Italy and Nazi Germany). Husky began on the night of 9–10 July 1943, and ended 17 August. It opened the way to the Allied invasion of Italy."
At this stage World of Tanks development team is glad to announce the launch of Operation Husky Special which is dedicated to Allied invasion of Sicily (9 July – 17 August 1943).
