Default Re: Italy OOB 34 corrections/suggestions (v.11) 2018

Anti-tank gun class 238

321 Cannone 65mm - same as 593 and 320 above

323 Cannone 70mm - same as 594 and 322 above

325 Cannone 75L17 - same as 595 and 324 above

327, 365 Cannone 75L18 - same as 596 and 326 above - again, two instances of apparently the same gun.

Misc. AFVs

7 Armato M.32 (P) - better name would be "Ansaldo 9t (P)" (Russian page http://aviarmor.net/tww2/tanks/italy/carro_roturra.htm) - now AFAIK it means "Armed M.32" (besides, it was known as Carro di Rottura (breakthrough tank), not Carro Armato). It wasn't adopted as "M.32" anyway.
BMG should be single.


346 L6 Lanciafiamme - a number of shots had been once raised to 16, but it is more than 061 L 3-33/35 LF has [9], while L6 had only 200 l of mixture (https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/L6/40), and L 3-33/35 LF - 500 l.
BTW, according to Squadron/Signal book: "An unknown number of L6/40Lfs were built, but this variant did not enter service"


492,493 Fiat 611 - a photo is Soviet BA-27, should be 16053 - or there are more of both variants: http://www.italie1935-45.com/regio-e...m/281-fiat-611
It rather wasn't off-road - 6 tons, 6x4.
492 - two MGs in a turret were independent (rear hull MG was probabaly rarely used...)
493 - MGs were 6.5mm

Speed 10 is correct according to https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_611_(autoblindo), but the page above claims 43/48 km/h...
According to both pages, they entered service in 1933-34 [now 1934 and 35]
Better icon is IMO 50 or 179 due to its big rear overhang - or 4071-4072 might be even better, looking at its profiles (the qouted page).

506 L 3-38 [13.2] - there was no twin 13mm TMG - should be weapon 233,

715 SMV M.42 OA - there were no twin 13mm TMG - as above (should be weapon 233, same as unit 566 - if there were rearmed command Semovente conversions at all...)
