About Carro Armato M13/40:
The Carro Armato M13/40 was developed early in the war, improving on previous Italian models. These tanks had some success against many of the first Allied tanks to appear in North Africa. Although effective at the beginning of the war, the Italian medium tanks proved to be ineffective against the later Allied models and heavier guns. The tank also had poor top speed and range for its size.
Despite its shortcomings, the Allies deployed captured M13/40’s in North Africa. These captured tanks served as a short-term solution for the extreme lack of available Allied armor in several key battles, including El Alamein.
About Cannone Da 75/32 - Modello 37:
The Cannone da 75/32 was a towed artillery piece developed by Italy shortly before hostilities broke out in World War II. During the 1930’s, Italy recognized the need to upgrade its military hardware. As a result, they were able to replace their dated World War I hardware with new, better-suited weapons. Although effective and well-constructed, this gun could never be produced in enough numbers to sway the tide of battle against the Allies. After Italy’s surrender in 1943, Germany took ownership of these guns to continue the fight on the Italian front.
About SPA TL.37 - WWII Light Artillery Tractor:
Developed by Italy, the SPA TL.37 Light Artillery Tractor was among several variants of trucks produced before and during the Second World War. This model was used to haul smaller artillery pieces, as the name might indicate. The chassis used on this vehicle was modified for several different armored cars during the war. Several were also retrofitted with self-propelled artillery and anti-aircraft guns.
