The Carro Armato M11/39 was Italy's first medium tank. It was designed after the Spanish Civil War, and entered production in 1939 when 100 were ordered.
The M11/39 was not a success, due to its thin armour and relatively weak main gun (which was mounted in the hull, limiting the traverse).
After a disastrous combat debut against the British in North Africa in 1940-08, production was discontinued in favour of the improved Carro Armato M13/40.
