    77/28 Skoda M05/08 in anti-tank role

    There is a map, that shows the defenses of Tripoli in 24 February 41, it lists 8 77/28 and 31 47/32 in contra-carri function for the GAF. same map also lists 1 gruppo 77/28 (2 bty) with artillery function for the GAF. If the map is correct, there is already in begin of 1941 77/28 assigned to AT.

    Replacement for the CV.3
