I just wanted to say I may seem like I have something against the british, I don't its just that, there arme many false truths, and misplaced problems that britian came up with and now is considered "truth", I just like pointing out little known facts. Such as in veitnam the us went into hell and got spit out right? No in Vietnam the USA destroyed the country both figuratively, literally and physically. The last us soldier was pulled out 3 years before the fall of siagon, another example would be Germany caused too world wars, wrong Germany never declared war on anybody except Poland once and Russia twice, both times were cause by reprucusiary actions from the west I can go on and on but the point is I malty sound harsh but its just to bang home a point

Semovente 47/32 Tank Destroyer

32-Aberdeen.0002h2zx.jpg


The Semovente 47/32 was an Italian self-propelled gun built during World War II. It was created by mounting a Cannone da 47/32 M35 in an open-topped, box-like superstructure on a Fiat L6/40 chassis. Some were built as command tanks with a radio installed instead of the main gun. A 8 mm machine gun disguised as the 47 mm main gun was used on these versions to make them look like regular Semovente 47/32s. About 300 Semovente 47/32 were built from 1941 and onward. The Semovente 47/32 was the most heavily armed Italian AFV used on the Eastern Front.

After the Italian armistice in September 1943, the German Army took all Semovente 47/32s they could get hold of for their own use. Some of these were provided to Germany's Croatian puppet state.

the gun on this achieved Armor Penetration of AP: 58 mm (2.3 in) at 100 m (110 yards); 43 mm (1.7 in) at 500 m (550 yards)

The first 60 were built using the M13/40 chassis and a subsequent 162 were built on the M14/41 chassis from 1941 onwards. The Semovente 75/18 was intended to be an interim vehicle

Semovente M.42 da 75/34 Tank Destroyer
M42 75-34.jpg
The Semovente 75/34 was an Italian self-propelled gun developed and used during World War II. It was built by mounting a 75 mm L34 gun (a longer gun than that on the Semovente 75/18) on the chassis of a M15/42 tank. Though 192 were built before the Italian surrender in September 1943, the vehicle was never used in combat by the Italian army. Most were seized by German troops after Italy's surrender and used against the Allies in Italy and the Balkans until the end of the war.

Semovente 105/25
Semovente 105 25.jpg

The Semovente 105/25 was an Italian tank destroyer in use during World War II. It was constructed by mounting a 105 mm gun that was 25 calibers long (hence the name) in a widened chassis from a M15/42 tank. Thirty were built by Fiat-Ansaldo and delivered in 1943 before the Italian surrender in September that year. After the surrender the German forces took them over and used them under the designation Sturmgeschütz M43 mit 105/25 853(i) and they also built 60 more Semovente 105/25s

Semovente 75/46 Tank Destroyer
Semovente 75 46.jpg
he Semovente 75/46 was an Italian self-propelled gun used during World War II. It was built by mounting a 75 mm L46 gun on the chassis of a M15/42 tank. After the armistice, control of the Ansaldo factories fell under German control. The Germans ordered the production of a modified version of the M 42L and a 75/46 was the gun of choice. The resulting vehicle was named the M 42T da 75/46 (the T signified Tedesco or German). Only a limited number were produced and these were used exclusively by the Germans. Only about 15 were ever made.

M.42 Semovente 90/53
Semovente 90 53.Aberdeen.0008habs.jpeg
tank destroyer/ Self Propelled gun it fit both roles

It was created by mounting a 90 mm Cannone da 90/53 anti-aircraft gun on top of an enlarged chassis of a M14/41 tank. Only 30 of these vehicles were produced, all in 1942.[1] This low production was due to Italy's limited industrial capability at the time, as well as high demand for the 90 mm gun for regular anti-aircraft duties.

The Semovente 90/53 was primarily developed in response to demands by Italian forces on the Eastern Front for a vehicle-mounted anti-tank weapon that could take on Soviet T-34 and KV tanks. Italian armored forces on the Eastern Front were equipped only with the L6/40 tank and Semovente 47/32 self-propelled gun; neither of these had the firepower to cope with the Soviet medium and heavy tanks. However, no Semovente 90/53 were ever sent to the Eastern Front.

The M11/39 saw service in Africa and Italy (1939-1944). The official Italian designation was Carro Armato ("armored vehicle") M11/39. The designation for the M11/39 is as follows: "M" for Medio (Italian: "medium"), followed by the weight in tons (11) and the year of adoption (1939).
