|M13/40 Medium Tanks|
|The M13/40 featured such modern developments as a rotating turret!|
|The earlier M11/39's only had a limited traverse gun mounted in the hull.|
Some of the tanks of the Ariete Division had a a really neat splinter camouflage pattern during this period and so I have opted to paint these to that scheme. All the tanks also have white air recognition crosses on their turret roofs so the Italian Air force does not bomb them by mistake. I've never quite understood the value of these markings because any symbol that identifies friendly units is surely just as valuable to enemy aircraft!
Thirty tanks at 2 points each will hurtle me across my personal finishing line of 500 points. Combined with my recent Bonus round entry and other projects in the pipeline I'm on schedule to break my personal best in the three challenges I have participated in. Completely unheard of!
MilesR: Avanti! what a great looking formation. A very change change of pace within your scale of choice.
