includes one Semovente 75/34 Self-propelled gun.

The first Italian self-propelled gun, the Semovente M41 da 75/18 based on the M14/41 medium tank, was introduced in late 1941. This provided the field artillery with both mobility and protection.

Mid-war Monsters
In our research we have uncovered lots of really interesting experimental tanks. Some were just designs that were never completed. Others were completed as prototypes, and some even saw small-scale field testing!

These tanks were weird and wonderful, ranging from a 100-ton monster and a First World War relic, to a tank with two side-by-side main guns, an armoured car weighing more than a tank, and a machine-gun armed light tank with the armour of a heavy tank!

Mid-war Monsters
Semovente 75/34 Self-propelled gun (MM14) Mounting the short-barrelled 75mm L/18 howitzer, it was used with great success in the Desert where it supported the medium tanks with accurate long-range supporting fire.
The Semovente 75/34 was an improved design armed with a new 75/34 gun in a lengthened fighting compartment. Being based on the M15/42 hull, it had a more powerful engine, but was slightly longer. The design was completed by late 1942 and Fiat Ansaldo began full-scale production in 1943. They had produced 190 by September 1943 when Italy surrendered. Semovente 75/34 Self-propelled gun (MM14)
Hull-mounted Guns
Some tanks mount weapons in the front of the hull instead of in a turret to save weight or to make them easier to produce.


A hull-mounted weapon mounted in the front of a vehicle has a 180-degree Field of Fire covering everything in front of a line drawn across the front of the vehicle. If the weapon is mounted at the rear of the vehicle, the Field of Fire covers everything to the rear of a line drawn across the rear of the vehicle.
Semovente 75/34 Self-propelled gun (MM14) After the fall of Italy, the Germans seized the Semovente 75/34 as the StuG M42. They had issued a total of 294 to German units by the end of 1944. In that year they served with six infantry divisions, two Panzer divisions, three Panzergrenadier divisions, one Fallschirm¬jager division, and one Gebirgsdivision in Italy and the Balkans.
