What the Italians really need is not more trucks or jeeps, they need tanks. BETTER TANKS. Some planes would be nice also.

Better tanks like what? Better assault guns would be possible, but I am afraid we have reached the upper end of Italian tanks.

I know what a self propelled gun are; but people recognize the word more as "tank" than the other term. But anyway, we need that spg.

Semovente 75/18: 765 built. could also appear at El-Alamein and in Tunisia. the only italian SPG at the time that had a chance fighting of allied heavier tanks. we need this thing.



If we ever get an italy map i think these tanks would be cool, however the number of the vehciles constructed is very low, and they werent always used by the italians:


"The Semovente 105/25 was an Italian tank destroyer in use during World War II. It was constructed by mounting a 105 mm gun that was 25 calibers long (hence the name) in a widened chassis from a M15/42 tank. 30 were built by Fiat-Ansaldo and delivered in 1943 before the Italian surrender in September that year. After the surrender the German forces took them over and used them under the designation Sturmgeschütz M43 mit 105/25 853(i) and they also built 60 more Semovente 105/25s. This vehicle is considered the best AFV Italy produced during the war."


P40: "Despite its shortcomings, the P40 was the only Italian tank design that was comparable to Allied and German medium tanks as they appeared in the middle of the war. With a weight of around 25-30 tonnes, the P40 was designated as a 'heavy' tank in Italy, but by contemporary international standards, it was a medium tank (situation quite similar to the Panzer IV)." However only aobut 100 were built and then use by the germans at anzio for example. nothing for north afrika.

Italians now first need=

-Artillery (I would suggest Obice Da 75/18 modello 34, because it also has HEAT shells, it was also used by the british on the battle of crete)
-AA weapon (20mm Breda)
-Semovente 75
-Aircraft
-Armoured cars

Then other tanks can be added, but adding M14 wont really have much affect, next to more speed. Same armor and gun as M13/40

Your missing one key thing here, yet again.


Italians need:

- A map to put all these things on


Also, the reason why the Breda Modello 30 is a piece of shit is because it was a piece of shit.

You want to push even more vehicles on El Alamein?.. Or are you saying that there should be more Italian maps? Sure there should be but sadly people fancy new fronts more than maps that actually matter. Italian Power!

The current el alamein map holds Kidney ridge and to the south militaryie ridge. The ridge was occupied by italian forces yes
BUT what i wanted to suggest, was the southern sector at the munassib depression

This was solely occupied by italian forces. And ton the north the FJ Ramcke. (Yes german troops)

After the british take several flag, Italian reinforcements spawn wich is the 132 Ariete devision. Wich bravely did a counterattack allowing the Afrika corps to escape.
