L3/33 Carro Veloce

This Carro Veloce L3/33 or CV-33 was an Italian tankette produced in 1933 and used by several armies before and during World War II. Vehicle model designations changed as variants with slightly upgraded armor and weapons were produced or field modified. Such changes were welded, bolted or riveted armor and modifying existing tankettes with single to double machine guns. Between 2,000 - 2,500 units were produced from 1933 to 1935. This family of tankettes were used by Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Hungary, Spain and Italy.
Although both lightly armored and under gunned, this diminutive tank filled some important niche rolls. Recon and infantry support were typical unit orders. A flamethrower variant was also produced.
