General Information
The Carro Armato M15/42 was a new tank based on the M13/40.

The vehicle was powered by a Fiat diesel engine of 175hp from the front drive sprocket then took the track under eight road wheels on two bogies, round the rear idler and back via fouur return rollers.

The 47mm L40 gun was mounted in the turret.

Hit Probability(%) 98 98 98 88 48 22 6 2

Hit probability is based on a static 2 x 2.4 metre panel at 0 degrees(vertical) at the range specified.

The data that has been used to create these records has come from Wikipedia, The Lone Sentry, The Bundes Archive and numerous books and websites that have provided the detailed information that has not been available anywhere else. The information we use to calculate the penetration tables, flight times and the hit probability comes from the Gun Calibre, the Shell Mass(Kg) and the muzzle velocity, plus range reductions to allow for gravity and wind resistance. This calculation originally came from a pre-war Krupp calculation which has been modified, and seems to fit the actual test results.
