French Tanks

French tanks suffered for having a one manned turret and many were armed with 37mm low velocity guns. The French tried to address this problem and developed a longer barrelled 37mm, which was mounted on later models. The French cavalry (DLC) were issued with a range of light tanks for reconnaissance roles. The armoured divisions (DCR) contained various models of light tanks including Renaults and Hotchkiss designs and the medium Somua and heavy series of Chars.
