General Information
The Semovente da 75/34 su scafo di carro M42 was designed in 1942, manufactured by Fiat-Ansaldo based on the existing fully tracked M13/40 and was in use from 1943 to 1945.

The vehicle was powered by FIAT-SPA '15TB M42' petrol powerplant producing 192 HP which could drive the vehicle on roads at up to 20 mph with a range of about 143 miles before refuelling. Its cross country performance was good providing a max speed of about 11 mph and a range of about 57 miles.

Its main armament consisted of an Cannone contracarro da 75/32 M37 which could penetrate 98 mm of flat plate at 200 metres

Hit Probability(%) 98 98 98 88 54 25 8 3

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.
