Great and small

As the second Hotchkiss is complete, I continue to be intrigued by these early war tank designs, and how tiny they are!

I have to remind myself that these were never expected to take out enemy tanks at 2000 yards.  The mindset really was on infantry support.

I have some even smaller tanks under way that were used more as supply transports than as something that would be employed in combat.

The two Hotchkiss side by side, with a third on the way.

And a comparison to the 'massive' Char B1 Bis, which also seems quite small even compared to mid-war tanks.  It's been quite the education.
