Was the attack on Yugoslavia the sole occassion where the Italian army operated in a theatre of war that it had correctly planned and trained for?

The use of the Littoria armoured division in Yugoslavia seems to be the only case of an Italian armoured division operating in its indended role in a planned for campaign, is this true?

Was the attack on Yugoslavia the greatest success of Italian armour?

Was the attack on Yugoslavia the Italian army's one success?

You can't discount the invasion and occupation of British Somaliland as unsuccessful. Granted, it was taken away from them within a year, but so was everything else in time.

I dont know much about the Italian effort against Yugoslavia, but the British Somalia invasion was virtually unchallenged from what Ive read......no more than a few skirmishes took place.
