CARRO L6/40 LANCIAFIAMME: a puny number of these prototypes was built in December, 1941; they probably never saw combat. It replaced the 20mm autocannon with a standard flamethrower, carrying 30 shots. Weight approximately the same, Cost $4,800, empty space in the Body is 1.1, in the Turret 2.4. The loadout costs $121.60.

The flamethrow system used to convert some L6 was the same for L3 of the mast serie of Flamethrower (with "Serbatoi incorporato", with reserve incorporated at the rear of the tank, not in a remorque tracked like the most common L3 flamethrower).

I don't know if this version of L6 flamethrower saw operations.

We must remember that Italian army was one of the biggst user of Flametrhower tanks, numerous and employed in all the differents fronts. But I don't know the real efficacity of such fighting means.

Bests regards,
