Carro P.40

Carro P.40

This was the first Italian tank that was comparable to the Allied tanks. Unfortunately for Italy, production came to late, and Italy surrendered before they could be employed by the Italian Army. Over 100 of these tanks were built between 1943 and 1945, most of which were under German control after the Italian armistice and a good percentage lacked engines.

Armor 60 mm
Range 150 km
Weight 26 tons
Speed 35 km/hr
Dimensions 5.80 x 2.80 x 2.52 mt
Crew 4
Armament n.1 gun 75 mm + n.1 8.0 mm MG

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!
