Renault FT – Camouflage & Restocks

New release: Renault FT – Camouflage

413-renault-social-media-710

The tank was developed during World War I to help defeat the bloody stalemate of trench warfare of the Western Front. The Renault FT was a light tank to be used in a breakthrough and exploitation role and was equipped with either a low-velocity artillery piece or machine gun. It’s two-man crew consisted of a driver and tank commander, who doubled as the tank’s gunner. Over 3000 FTs were built in France during World War I where it was successfully used by both French and American armored forces. A copy of the FT was manufactured in the USA under license and was standardized as the M1917. The American version can be easily distinguished by the location of the muffler to the left side of the hull, whereas the original French version had the muffler located on the right. The Renault FT has the distinction of setting the pattern for future tank development: fully tracked vehicle with engine located in the rear, and a single fully-rotating turret.

The M4 Sherman was the workhorse medium tank of US and western Allied forces during World War II. Armed with a multi-purpose 75mm gun that could fire both high-explosive and anti-tank rounds, it ruled the battlefield when first introduced. Even though the Sherman would later prove inferior in firepower and armor to heavier German Panther and Tiger Tanks, it’s superior mobility, reliability and ease of manufacture proved to be a wartime winner.

The Chaffee was a light tank introduced at the end of World War II to replace the worn out and under-gunned M3/M5 Stuart tank. The Chaffee first saw action against the German Ardennes offensive—known today as the Battle of the Bulge. Lightly armored and fast, the M24 was a nimble scout vehicle that was armed with the same 75mm gun as the M4 Sherman tank. The M24 Chaffee was retired from US service after the Korean War, being replaced by the M41 Walker Bulldog. Around the world, Chaffees have soldiered on in other armed services to modern times. During the Vietnam War, the South Vietnamese Army effectively fielded Chaffee tanks that were left behind when the French Colonial Army withdrew in the late 1950s.
