Carro Armato M13/40 Medium Battle Tank

Made by Fiat Italy

Italian tanks were notorious for their bad design. Crews were expected to wear a heavy leather coat, even in the heat of N Africa to prevent wounds from spall when the tank took a hit.

Those rivet heads had a bad habit of bouncing around the tank's interior. :eek:

The designs were so consistently bad, Rommel is quoted as saying, "it would curl one's hair to see the equipment with which the duce sent his troops into battle."
