It says they were deployed for Albanian elections in Vlora.

Warspot features Italian WWII art from Domenica del Corriere.

The arts good but not enough M13 & Semovente.

 

Warspot article about Italian/German Volcano ammunition for the 155 & 127mm artillery:

Speaking of the OTO 127mm, isn't it about time to put it on a tracked/ wheeled vehicle for an OTOmatic/Draco on steroids?

OOoooooooo, and make it robotic!

Centauro during the exercise Laran 2019:

The second and third wheels have chains. I think it would make a splendid diorama!

All seems to be going well with the Fiat 2000 rebuild:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/141146503273934/?ref=pages_group_cta

I see some new pics of the Fiat 2000 in Libya and an A12 engine found around Lake Bracciano.

 

I personally reached out to Fiat to see if they would be interested in helping with the rebuild with the benefit of some PR:

They haven't responded since the above letter but I also posted a link of the F.2000 facebook page in my original e-mail. I would hope they just go directly there instead of bothering to contact little ol' me.

 

I would hope they would not choose to ignore the Ran's letter altogether.  Some people in the past have said the Ran doesn't like being ignored and craves attention. I am entirely unqualified and uninterested in confirming or denying their accusations.

Giacommini tank patent now in a scetchup redevelopment.

First steps into constructing this shapes to a 3D view. All i can say that's the projections do not match at some details and the overall design is an extremelly weird.

Are you going to model it with the dozer blade? I always wanted a tank with a dozer blade.

Sure thing i would, how do you think - is it flexible or fixed?

I would like it fixed so we can use it as a heat shield. Plus I wouldn't want WG making a new dozer mechanic just on account of lil ol' me.

Yay, another job has been being finished. As were already said on the page 315, this concept is an extremelly ugly yet original. I'm really curious about it's mass, internal layout scheme, and all other specifics. Here's the result of a 3D re-developing:

Very well done. It has the look of a 1950s engineering tank with a main gun.

Yeah, there's nothing really standard to measure off of. Even dozer blades come in different sizes.

I suppose the hatch at the top of the turret could give us a reasonable idea.

Hells to the yeah!

I finally found some worthy theme music for the Fiat 2000.

Halloween is almost here.

Yeah, I couldn't get rid of the power lines so sue me.

I would also like to add that it's never been penetrated.

 

Someone from the same site found a weird photo of an Ariete W/ Centauro 2 turret. Unknown at this point if it's real or not.

Oh, Ok. It's from a hitfact brochure:

Still weird.

Looks like a Regio Escercito plate on the back

 

This is dated 1942:

Also, I'm not convinced that's an RE plate. That might be how the Germans marked it.

The picture is dated 1945. A lot of the pictures are dated and this one has a location:

Tuscany 1944


 

This one has a ding in the front turret armor close to the gun mantlet:

Dated 1945
