Seems to have been a whole slew of weird tanks at Dukla Pass

True, there was always a good amount of diversity in the armored vehicles. This applies to almost every single battle of the WWII, and the strength/allocation tables were not always that reliable; especially some front line units (Soviet and German) wrote off the old and obsolete vehicles from their official inventories, even though these veteran/donated machines were still, more or less functional  :)

I think this image is originally in color, very cool to see non-desert colored tanks in the desert.


Osprey's Italian Medium Tanks '39-'45 says that they are M13/40s of VII M tank battalion in Libya, March 1940. They were probably transferred from the Balkans since they're still in their green/grey paint (I assume they were soon over painted with desert yellow).

The side markings show it's the first tank of the first platoon of the first company.
