    This is an early model with only 1 MG-a Schwarzlose 8mm with its distinctive large flash hider and short watercooled barrel and jacket-the tankettes were widely exported in the 1930s-an earlier thread here shows one on display in Afghanistan-a later model with twin Breda MGs.

    The l3lf version with flamethrower and fuel trailer was an interesting version of this little tankette.I believe that quite a few l3's were pushed into service by the British and Australians after the fall of Tobruk in 1941(have some images in a ref. book of L3's with Australian divisional markings(6th) painted on them).O'Conner needed armour so badly he was prepared to risk his tankies lives in a total heap of rubbish AVF.

    The L3LF.
    I believe Austria purchased 72 of the above mentioned AFV's.
