CV 33 (L3/33) and CV 35 (L3/35)

CV 35 (L3/35)

This tank was evolved from the CV 33 (3.3 Tons), and used in the Abyssinia War, the Spanish Civil War and the invasion of Albania.

This tankette utilized two gimbal mounted 8mm Breda Model 38 machine guns and came in a variety of models such as command vehicles, flame throwers and bridge layers.

During WWII, the CV33 was quickly outclassed by the Allies. A newer model was developed known as the CV 35 (L3/35) which increased its proficiency, but not enough to be effective.

Approximately 2,000 CV 33’s and L3/33-35’s were built.

I created Comando Supremo: Italy at War in 2000 because of the the limited amount of information on Italian forces in WWII that was available online. Thanks to people like you, this site has grown to what it is today. Thank you for visiting and please bookmark the site!
