Description

During 1942, the Italian Army considered mounting the 10.5cm gun on the chassis of a P40 medium tank but delays with the P40 forced designers in a new direction and an alternate chassis based on the M15/42 was developed. Due to the size of the 10.5cm gun, the chassis had to be widened to accommodate the proposed armament, renamed to M43. By the end of 1943 a number of Semovente 105/25 were in service in the German Army, seeing action with the 336. Infanterie Division and 26. Panzer Division. A year later, sixty-six of these machines were in service with Army Groups C and F in Italy and the Balkans.
