NotesThe M14/41 was basically an improved version of the M13/40. It had a better engine and improved armour but suffered from the same faults as its predecessor, and many broke down due to engine problems and had a tendency to catch fire when hit. It was just as cramped as the M13/40 and had the same main gun. Like the M13/40 many were knocked out in battle or captured.
