Speaking of PSC, does anyone know how their 15mm Shermans compare in size to Battle Fronts?

Thanks

They play well together PzGeneral. I have just finished up 1st Guards Armored tanks (44-45) for Rapid Fire using a mix of the two. The Battle Front Shermans are a bit longer, but not overly noticeable, and sit a bit higher, once again not that noticeable especially on a game table. Interestingly enough they both appear about the same width.

I should add this compares the Sherman V (M4A4) from both manufacturers.

Going back to the original post, does anyone know if the 20mm-armed L3/33 was used in Spain by the CTV?

Here's an interesting discussion, one post of which would suggest that only L3/35s were used.

Thank you, deephorse. A very useful post although it suggests many of the L3/35 tanks were up-graded L3/33s. Unfortunately it seems the 20mm tanks, L3/33 or /35 were only used in North Africa. Shame – I would love to have added one to my CTV!

Mac, I was thinking the same thing
