General Information
The Semovente da 75/18 su scafo di carro M42 was designed in 1941, manufactured by Fiat-Ansaldo based on the existing fully tracked M14/41 and was in use from 1942 to 1945.

The vehicle was powered by FIAT-SPA 'SPA 15 T M41 V8' diesel powerplant producing 145 HP which could drive the vehicle on roads at up to 20 mph with a range of about 120 miles before refuelling. Its cross country performance was good providing a max speed of about 11 mph and a range of about 48 miles.

Its main armament consisted of an Cannone contracarro da 75/18 M35 which could penetrate 57 mm of flat plate at 800 metres

Hit Probability(%) 98 98 98 64 25 8 3 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.
