90/53 mod.41 (90 mm)
The Cannone da 90/53 is truly a marvel of Italian design, and although only present on two vehicles, and player who dares to disrespect it will be in for a beating so Italian that it comes with a side of Alfredo sauce. Boasting superior aspects to the Flak.37 mounted on the beloved Flak-Bus, the 90 piece is a devastating weapon in the right hands, able to frontally penetrate nigh everything it comes across and knock them out due to its excellent explosive filler.
