Italian Weapons in WW2



  • How would these upgrades in weapons helped the Italians in the war?


  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Britain would have gotten PWNED…  The Italian Manpower would have conquered the middleeast, activated muslim support,  and likely opened a new front on the Russians… Turkey also could have felt compelled, or pressured, to allow the Italians into the Black Sea…

    All the Allied Campaigns coming up from the south would have been stunted…  thus allowing Axis forces to redeploy,  You would have see fighting from Liberia to Morocco instead,  and Allies out of the mediterranean.

    ALL GOOD THINGS for Axis Powers…

    +1 to victory.



  • nope, problem lied especially in individual morale of the average infantry

    Not according to Rommel.  He had his complaints about their leadership in some areas, but certainly not their troops.

    I remember he was speaking about Aquila and Ariete division?
    the elite-italians were good (panzers, black shirts etc), but the average italian?
    rommel used a ‘corset’ at the battle of alamein; so placing german troops between italians, so they can look at the ‘good example’ instead or running.



  • I think if the italians had modern weapons they would of stayed and fought more.
