The French FCM-36 Tank

The French FCM-36 Tank was yet another infantry tank ordered by the French Army in relatively small numbers during the mid 1930’s to form part of their armoured force. This of course meant a shortage of spare parts for the 100 that did enter service and contributed in the defence of the 1939 German invasion of France.
