    Default Fiat M13/40 Italian Medium Tank video and info

    The Fiat-Ansaldo M13/40 was an Italian medium tank ("M" for Medio (medium) according to the Italian tank weight standards at the time: 13 tonnes was the scheduled weight and 1940 the initial year of production), designed to replace the Fiat L3, the Fiat L6/40 and the Fiat M11/39 in the Italian Army at the start of World War II. The design was influenced by the British Vickers 6-Ton and was based on the modified chassis of the earlier Fiat M11/39. Indeed, M11/39 production was cut short in order to get the M13/40 into production.

    As a tip don't rely on Wiki for information and if you do copy sections from it you should cite it as your source. It has been known to be wrong at times lol.

    Liked the youtube vid on the French troops in WW1 by the way.
