"Italian Tank Modifications" from Tactical and Technical Trends

The following brief intelligence report on new versions of Italian tanks was originally printed in Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 6, August 27, 1942.

Recent reports show that there have been changes in the Italian tank M.13/40. The modified version is known as M.14/41. The armor has been reinforced by additional plates, the basic armor remaining the same. In consequence of these modifications the weight is now reported to be 1 ton heavier, i.e. 14 tons. The engine of the M.14/41 is said to be 145 h.p.

It is possible that there is another new model, the M.16, but the only information available at present is that unlike the earlier models it uses a gasoline engine.
