So is a lafette or a vickers.  Its basically a pick up kit, wouldn't work for spawnable AT.  For at rifle, the italians could use the Wz. 35

Oh I believe the Breda 35 is also on the Marmon Herrington so you got the basic data already

Does anyone have any info on this rifle grenade cup for the M91?




Also, I found this:




I'd say either give the Italians this, or don't give tham snipers at all.  The K98k sniper is just so out of place.

It's a M43 grenade launcher.

As I noted in a previous post awhile back, there have only been a very few sniper carcano's ever documented.  The Jagdtiger would have been more common.  SO while yes, they existed, it simply was in numbers so minuscule to make it unrealistic to have.  So imo, just remove sniper rifles from itie all together....

Cannone da 47/32 M35
The Cannone da 47/32 M35 was an Austrian artillery piece produced under license in Italy during World War II. It was used both as an infantry gun and an anti-tank gun.

In contrast to other "dual purpose" artillery pieces of similar weight used during the war, such as the PaK 36 and Bofors 37 mm, it proved to be successful even in an anti-tank role especially when equipped with HEAT (Italian: "Effetto Pronto") rounds.

The gun could fire both armor piercing and high explosive projectiles, the latter having a range of 7,000 meters to provide the gun with a useful infantry support role. As the armor thickness of tanks increased, the Böhler increasingly assumed this infantry support role.

AMMUNITION

    * 47 mod. 35 powder charge grenade
    * Piercing projectile mod. 35
    * Anti tank projectile "effetto-pronto"
    * Anti tank projectile "effetto-pronto speciale"
    * Piercing tracer projectile mod. 39
    * Piercing tracer projectile mod. 35
    * Blank projectile
    * Exercitation grenade







Brixia modello 35 45mm mortar




mortar round (same as used in the rifle grenade launcher)



even found an old thread about it

The Pak 36 and other 37mm/40mm types like the 2lber and the american 37mm were all very successful....  The 2lber ripped through the Pz1, 2, and 3s used in the invasion of france, whilst the american 37mm was incredibly successful against the japanese tanks in the pacific.  The Pak36, while woefully underpowered against the french heavy tanks, the maty, and the T-34, did just as good as intended against the majority of allied and russian tanks at the time, which were as light as the panzer 2s and 3s.  Also, the Pak36 ALSO got a heat shell that could be loaded over the end of the muzzle, which was highly effective in normandy due to the close combat conditions.

The Machi MC202 Folgore

And most unlikely the Cant Z 1007, since i haven't seen any medium bomber yet...

The Ma.202 Folgore "just" needs code, animations and...everything except the model and textures.  The Static can already be seen on Hyacinth.  Although where it would flown...  Gazala?  Replace one of the 109s?  There's already Italian Tanks on that map.

Maybe more early war Italian maps? Anyway it can be added later, if the devs decide to make the mediterranean theater (Invasion of Italy, bombing of Malta...).
