Nice guns, nice work. Just two comments:

I would like the Skoda 152 gun being named in the counter as the italians did: 152/37. And I would say that the shield was an "old" attachment from the WWI use of the gun. The italians did not use it, at least in North africa were they were deployed (8 gruppo).

Also the 75/49 (t) was the 75/50 for the italians and I think it should be called as it was by them. Also deployed to north africa: for exmple Trieste Motorissed division.

Nice job
