General info

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.

Mobility

Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and manoeuvrability as well as the maximum speed forward and backwards.

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

Pros:

  • Decent 75 mm gun with a respectable reload rate
  • Low profile = harder to spot
  • Has access to HEAT rounds
  • Decent top speed

Cons:

  • Overall armour is not very good
  • Is vulnerable to getting flanked due to being a casemate tank destroyer
  • Thin top armour; can be vulnerable to strafing aircraft
  • Acceleration leaves things to be desired

History

Intended to use the same gun as the P26 medium tank but on the M15/42 chassis, the 75/34 Semovente variant had not yet become operational when the Germans seized control of northern Italy. The Germans continued its manufacture, completing 116. Saw service along with the other Semovente variants in Italy and the Balkans.
