There's been various debate previously about adding Low Profile to a number of units on the Italian lists that currently do not have it.

Can I ask for contributions for consideration please.

E.G. I think there is specifically a very low profile Artillery piece - but I cannot remember which one?

Many thanks

Hi Mark

Not sure what qualifies as Low Profile - less than man height maybe ?

The light howitzer Obice de 75/18 Mod 34 /35 was pretty small.

Well I was at the new American Heritage Museum last week.  https://www.americanheritagemuseum.org/  Really great place.

They have a StuG III (low profile)Iím 6 foot and I was looking slightly down on the top of the upper deck.  Next to the Hetzer, (average profile) I had to look up.  So I believe the man height standard is about right.

BTW their Panther is spectacular and they also have the only Sdkfz 222 on display.

The 65/17 infantry gun would count as low profile:

and the 47/32 could be eligible:

Yep - those two have Low Profile listed.

Don't get much lower than in those pics!
