If you want a vehicle for your Italian force then this undoubtedly should be your first of many, the M13/40 Light Tank!
The M13/40 series was Italy’s most-produced tank of the war, it was a conventional light tank of the early war period, similar in capability to other Vickers-derived designs such as the Polish 7TP and Soviet T-26.
Having a 47mm long barrelled gun made it more than a match for the British tanks of 1940-41. In April 1941, at the time of the arrival of the Afrika Korps, the Italians had a good number of M13 in first-line service.
The M13/40 would prove to be great asset to Rommels Afrikakorps. Find the full rules for this Light Tank in the Armies of Italy and the Axis Bolt Action supplement. Support Bersaglieri or regular troops by using 3 of these in tank war with our Axis desert themed tank platoon offer:
