The well armoured T-34 and KV-1 tanks encountered by the Italian expeditionary corps in Russia were a rude shock as no Italian weapons could penetrate them.

The Semovente da 90/53 was designed as a solution. It mounted the new 90/53 anti-aircraft gun on a lengthened M14/41 tank chassis.

Fitting such a big gun on such a small tank required the engine to be moved to the centre of the tank and the gun mounted at the extreme rear.

This forced the crew to operate the gun while standing on the ground behind the vehicle.

Models Supplied Unpainted and Unassembled.
