Text in original Preserved Italian Tanks publication:

For the details of this vehicle see Preserved Tanks in Russia: Number 159. It was supplied to Hungary and although on the front it carries an Italian Army registration number it was almost certainly never used by the Italian Army and so this number is unlikely to be genuine. It is missing its armament.

Text in original Preserved Tanks In Russia publication:

The Carro Veloce (‘fast tank’) CV-33 was a design based on the British Vickers Carden-Loyd Mark VI tankette, four of which were purchased by the Italian Army in 1929. The CV-33 design was cheap and simple and found many export customers, including Albania, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Hungary and Spain. The example here has an additional square commander’s cupola indicating that it was one of those vehicles exported to, and modified by, the Hungarian army.
