About the L6/40 - Italian Light Tank:

Originally built in the 1930s with the intention of being exported, Fiat Ansaldo’s L6/40 light tank was ordered by the Italian Army in limited numbers. Missing the initial blitz of Operation Barbarossa, and perhaps trying to avoid being attacked next, Benito Mussolini quickly ordered his Army to join the invasion. Given their small stature and speed, the L6/40 primarily saw use in reconnaissance missions and cavalry divisions. They were bolted and riveted together, often by hand. The turret was manually turned from below, and could be entered through the roof, or a hull side door.

Specifications:

Crew: 2
Armament: 37mm Vickers-Termi L/21 (eventually switched to 20mm Breda with a secondary 8mm MG)
Range: 125 miles (200km)
Speed: 25mph (42 km/h)
Traverse: 360 degrees

Contenente printed elements molti bellissimi, the first thing you will probably notice is the dedication to historical accuracy. Rivets are sprinkled across the front, rear, and turret of your L6/40 kit! No need to fret over sticker placements. The turret hatch, air vents, and engine compartment complete the detailing of this kit. Beneath the turret you can view the mechanism used for manual rotation. Up above your gunner can ride in the turret and complete his pizza delivery mission to the front lines!
