Primary RoleMedium Tank


ww2dbaseCarro Armato M 14/41 medium tanks entered production in 1941. Although these tanks had their own distinct designation, they were actually an improved version of the predecessor M13/40, equipped with more powerful engines. They first saw action in North Africa; Italian tank crews reported the interior spaces as cramped, and the mechanical work as unreliable. After the Italian forces withdrew from North Africa, M14/41 tanks were used only in rear areas as they were considered obsolete in the face of more modern Allied tanks. A small number of captured examples were briefly pressed into service by British and Australian troops.

ww2dbaseThe M14/41 tanks shared the same chassis with the Italian Semovente 90/53 self-propelled guns.

ww2dbaseDuring the design's production life, about 800 M14/41 tanks were produced.
