The Italo-Turkish War, more formally known as the Second Italo-Turkish War, is a conflict between Italy and Turkey in the immediate aftermath of the collapse of the Triumvirate.

Lead-Up[edit | edit source]

In the years leading up to 1962, the Turkish government had been demanding control of both several Mediterranean islands with a significant Turkish population and more territory in the Levant from the Italians. This issue was planned to be negotiated at the Malta Conference, but the bombing prevent any resolution from occurring. Following the failure of the 1962 Malta Conference, relations between Italy and Turkey reached a low point.

With the end of the Malta conference, the Triumvirate collapsed as both Turkey and the Iberian Union blamed the Italian government for the lack of security that led to the bombing. With no alliance binding them, the Turkish government decided that they would solve the border issue by force.

In-Game[edit | edit source]

The war is unique in TNO, as Italy doesnt actually declare war on Turkey. the war is simulated with Turkey fighting the Italian Levant, which Italy sends volunteers to. meanwhile, combat on the other fronts is handled through the border war mechanic.

Potential Outcome[edit | edit source]

Unlike most conflicts in TNO, Italo-Turkish War's outcome has a huge number of variation based on who prevails in which front.
