【 True Light Tank 】 Fiat Ansaldo started development of a light tank in 1936, and the L6/40 was designated as the Italian Army’s first light tank in 1940. Powering the rivet construction hull was a 68hp inline 4-cylinder liquid cooled gasoline engine with a unique torsion bar suspension that enabled a maximum speed of 42km/h. Main armament was a Breda 20mm anti-aircraft cannon. Due to the delays of production and development, the L6/40 became an old type tank by the time it was deployed on the frontlines at the end of 1941. The L6/40 served in reconnaissance roles from North Africa to the Balkans and Russia, and were also used by German forces for anti-partisan operations after Italy's surrender in September, 1943.
