The Breda Modello 35 (or Breda 20/65 Modello 1935) is an Italian 20mm autocannon, at its core an enlarged development of the Breda Modello 31. The gun uses 12-round feed strips, which can be positioned together to allow for a theoretically infinite firing duration. The Modello 35 was used as an anti-tank, anti-materiel, and anti-aircraft cannon on land, as the armament of several light tanks and similar vehicles, as well as serving as anti-air armament aboard most Italian ships. Its dual mount setup used a rather unique diagonal position, with the left gun higher than the right to allow clearance for both guns' feed strips.

Many were captured by the allies throughout the war, and it was so well-regarded that it found itself mounted aboard several British and Australian ships, on the raiding vehicles of the legendary Long Range Desert Group, as well as equipping several Australian and British regiments. The Breda was also adopted by Sweden as the 20mm akan m/38, and by Finland as the 20 ItK/35 Br.
