honestly there isnt really much (if any) info from wargaming that you wont know by reading FTR, and there isnt really any non-disclosure agreement as far as im avare unless volketten is more involved in this than i am

Is that a second vehicle behind it or the engine doors open or some kind of modification? I can't tell.

 

Image is rather grainy, hard to make anything out.

Well they captured it fair and square. The whole Italian invasion of Greece was utterly shambolic. Nothing like trying to spread your forces too thin. Instead on concentrating their efforts or military power against a single enemy no no lets have multiple wars on multiple fronts against various enemies and mismanage them. 

Another Greek trophy:

I like FTR but there's too much trolling that goes on there by the devs, which of course isn't the fault of Silentstalker. I like FTR for its articles and non trolling news.

I also like cake.

I wonder if it was actually used. Now I'm gonna read up on the Ba'ath party coup.

M13s make reading fun!

Some Italian vehicles in use by or against Partisans in Yugoslavia:

 

Looks like this has hit a mine buried in the road

L.6/40 knocked out

 

Looks like a catastrophic explosion has ripped this M.13/40 to pieces:

 

Captured CV.3's

 

More knocked out armoured cars

and a rather well laden L.6/40

Found some old Italian Sherman turrets currently advertised for sale with the same fixed position modifications made to them:

and the more keen-eyed may see the pillbox body on an M.13/40 series tank in the background as well

and you can see the back of the M.13/40 pillbox and in the top right a German fixed position pillbox as well.

 

This is what that German pillbox looks like:

Could be a CV-33. Couldn't find any information about it in Google image search, and the site I found it on was comparing George Bush to Mussolini...

I was thinking about something with the foreign use of Italian tanks. The Australians, Greeks( I have very little info on the battle of Dioran),Spain, Iraq and whatever others.

I also saw the posts about the M11s in Ethiopia and Somalia. I would add that stuff to my M11/39 battles, but It's all been archived. Luckily, I printed out a copy before it was lost.
