That was particularly true of the L3 and L6 series of light tanks. The L6/40 tank proved too lightly armed and armoured to stand up to most of the British vehicles encountered in the desert. Work soon began on arming the L6/40 hull with the 47/32 anti-tank gun.
The now standard anti-tank weapon of the Italian army, the licensed produced Böhler 47/32 gun, was mounted on new the Semovente L.40 da 47/32 in one simple superstructure attached directly on the hull of the vehicle.
