Description

GarageImage M14-41 (47-40).jpg


The Fiat-Ansaldo M14/41 (47/40) is a premium rank II Italian medium tank with a battle rating of 2.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update "Regia Marina". This tank is a one-off modification of the in-tree M14/41 with the 13.2mm hull-mounted coaxial machine-gun, which can be useful, but it is purely situational. 

General info

Survivability and armour

The M14/41(47/40) offers decent armour protection and survivability for a rank II tank, but it has to be played carefully. The turret can block some shells with its 45mm front, and the mantlet can ricochet some rounds, but due to the rank increase, it will be more and more challenging to rely on your armour alone. The upper glacis can be penetrated, but few sharp angles can occasionally save you. The most obvious weak spot is the drivers vision slot and the side armour, which is only 25mm unsloped. Spacing between the crew members will save you, but if one-shots penetrate, it won't be easy to recover. And the driver and machine gunner sit behind the transmission, which may increase their chances of survival.

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 instead 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

Summarise 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 - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

M41 Carro Comando(A M41 Self-Propelled Command Tank) Picture provided byhttps://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:M41_Carro_Comando.jpg

Historically, this is rather a different vehicle than in-game. The only variant of the M14/41 was a command vehicle, which had its turret removed and only had a Breda mod.38 machine gun mounted as the anti-air weapon on the turret ring, while the 13.2mm Breda machine gun was a hull-mounted. These command vehicles were then added to the SPG platoons. They used RF1 CA and RF3 M2 radios to communicate with Tank Command and other units.

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
