1/144 M13 / 40 Carro Armato Italian Tank - Panzer Depot
1/144 M13 / 40 Carro Armato Italian by Panzer Depot
New production, 2x Colour Options.
Apparently quite a long lived little number this, over 700 built and still in existance in 1963 in Iraq (and used by "You know who, to Seize Power")
Obvioulsy in its WWII timeline, it mainly figured in the North Africa Campaigns. - it must be said that history was not really kind to this little (sorry, medium) tank.
Those interested in the Beda Fomm episode may be interested to note that the Ambush Blitz War game rules (optimised for 1/144 and compatible) has just published a Beda Fomm campaign update for this scenario! see 1/144 Ambush Blitz yahoo Forum
Italian tanks are a much overlooked subject that even in larger scales has to be a fairly niche product area.
