This M15 was part of the post-World War 2 defence line along the Tagliamento River (source: M. Foti). The main gun was replaced by a machinegun and the internal parts were stripped away (source: C. Vermeulen). It was recovered by the Italian Army in the summer of 2009, probably by soldiers of the 132° Reggimento Carri at Cordenons, and sent to Rome for restoration (source: MILES Forum). It was in very poor condition when recovered and is assumed to have gone to Cecchignola for the restoration work to be done but that has not been confirmed.
