So, do you have the same type of equipment breakdown for the Axis forces for each of the battles you listed? If so, could I bother you for it?

Italians, I am much less sure of.  FWIW…:

For Jun-Jul 40, mainly Fiat L3s (a small Bn attached to each Inf Div?), with a battalion or two of M11/39s.

SIDI EL BARRANI DEC 40:

9th Tank Bn (2nd Libyan Div): L3

18th & 20th Lt Tank Bns (XXI Corps): L3

2nd ? Tank Bn (Maletti Group): M11/39s

1st & 3rd Tank Bns (Babini Bde): M13/40s

21st & 60th Tank Bns (Babini Bde): L3

SIDI REZEGH NOV 41:

Ariete Div: 132 Armd Regt (3 Bns M13/40s); 2 Coys L3 or L6

Pavia Div:  5th Light Tank Bn L6

MAY 42:

Add Littorio Div with Regt of M13/40s.  Also has Cav Regt with L6 but unsure if activated at same time, definitely there by El Alamein.

Unclear to me if there is an additional M13/40 Bn in each Italian Corps as a Corps asset, or if taken from Armd Divs.

AUG-OCT 42:

Possible that other Inf Divs have Lt Tk Coys attached in addition to Pavia (i.e.  Bologna, Brescia, Savona) – L6

Trieste Div: 1 x M13/40 Bn.
