In Today's Warspot article, Yuri Pasholok discusses the design and development of Italy's only heavy tank of the Second World War: The Carro Armato P26/40. It did not see major service with Italian forces during the war, but did see late war service with the 24th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS "Karstjäger " at the end of the war. What do you think of the story of this vehicle? Feel free to share your thoughts here. 



One of the few P26/40's that did see service with The RSI after the '43 Armistice.

Interesting read.  Rivets over welds?  Cost factor?
