The French Renault FT Kegresse-Hinstin M24/25 Tank

The French Renault FT Kegresse-Hinstin M24/25 Tank was an upgraded FT-17, focusing on reducing the noise and increased mobility compared to the later. This was achieved by using the new Kegresse suspension and rubber tracks , as well as forward mounted rollers to aid in trench crossing. A few FT-17’s were upgraded to this standard in 1925 for troop trials in North Africa, but never entered service.
