The Carro Veloce L35/Lf Flamethrower Tankette differed from the Carro Veloce 33 in that it had a long-barreled hooded flamethrower instead of machine guns. In other respects, it was the same tankette.
The L35’s flamethrower had a range of about 328 feet.
Lf stands for “lanciaflamme”, the Italian word for flamethrower.
In the earliest model of the Carro Veloce L35/Lf versions, a 110 gallon armored fuel trailer was towed behind the tankette. In a later model, the fuel tank was mounted on the tankette’s rear.
