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
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.
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.
