The ones in the photos were captured by "Savoia Cavalleria" rgt. (see the white crosses on the turret)

R-35's were used by two battalions:101st and 102nd. Both were formed at 15.09.1941. Their main battle was at Gela(10th July).

BTW, I've also found a photo of italian Shermans. But there's no details about where and when it was taken.
Isn't this a post-war photo? Or maybe those tanks and soldiers belong to the kingdom of the south?

BTW, not only R-35 but also Somuas S-35 were used by italians.

Well, I didn't mean carriers exactly, but it could be. Do you have any photo of italians with carrier(or with any other allied vehicle :wink: )?
