On April 26th 1915, Italy came into the war on the side of the Triple Entente – Britain, France and Russia.By the end of the war in 1918, 600,000 Italians were dead, 950,000 were wounded and 250,000 were crippled for life. The war cost more than the government had spent in the previous 50 years – and Italy had only been in the war three years.

Infantry

The Italian Army had recognised the need for a new uniform by abandoning the dark blue 1903 and adopted the famous grigio-verde grey-green uniform, which would identify Italian soldiers for generations. The standard headgear was the kepi-style baretto with a soft crown, a leather peak and chinstrap, and a black badge showing the regimental number beneath a crown. A new type of rounded berretto M1915 (called a cupolino or scodellino) was introduced during the war.
The principal rifle used by the Italian Army was the bolt-action 6.5mm Mannlicher­Carcano m1891 with a six-round magazine.

Fiat-Revelli

The main Italian Heavy Machinegun of WW1 was the 6.5mm Fiat-Revelli M1914. One of the main motives behind its adoption appears to have been the desire to give the army a weapon manufactured in Italy. The gun was a modification of the Maxim type. The gun was water-cooled like the Maxim, but the cartridges was fed by an unusual 50-round box-like magazine divided into 5-round compartments.

Cannoni da 75 mod. 1911 Déport Field Gun

The 75mm Déport Field Gun was one of the most original yet effective design to see field service in WW1. It had a split trail, a quite revolutionary concept unseen then, but standard nowadays. Not only did this permit the crew to work more effectively, direct behind the gun. It also meant that the gun could be elevated much higher than any ordinary gun (45 degrees), because the breech did not interfer with the trail.

That is all for the start. More weapons and vehicles are planned for the Italian army, so stay tuned.

yes, because the Italian front is a very little treated (unlike the Western Front) and would be interesting to see the great war from the point of view of both sides (in the front)

Italians never had a tank in the first world war. First Italian tank Fiat 2000 never actually saw combat in World War I. The order for 50 tanks was never completed,
