This M15 appears to be in poor condition and is missing its hull machine-gun and main gun (the current gun and mantlet are fake) and other components, such as exhausts. This could indicate that it was once buried as part of a static defence line - there was a post-War defence line along the Tagliamento river that used old M13 series tanks in this way (source: M. Foti). It was previously displayed mounted on a stone ramp.
