Survivability and armour
Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat?
If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Usage in battles
Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).
Pros and cons
Summarize and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in a bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - they have a substitution in the form of softer "inadequate", "effective".
- Effective frontal armour and all-around protection
- Small frontal profile makes the tank easy to conceal and difficult to hit
- Decent mobility and good hull traverse
- Has access to HEAT rounds
- Armour becomes much less effective when uptiered against stronger vehicles
- As a casemate tank destroyer, the Semovente is extremely vulnerable to flanks
- A cramped interior and only 3 crew lessens survivablilty
- Inadequate gun for its tier
After the Italian surrender in 1943, the Germans restarted Semovente (self-propelled gun) production in occupied Italy. Twenty-nine of the Semovente 105/25s they produced were built with the 75/34 gun in place of their original 105mm howitzer. These saw service with German forces in southern Europe.
