Pint Sized Punch

Here we have the tiniest of the tiny tanks, the French Renault AMR-35 ZT series.

This 'tank' is more like a tracked armored car... not much bigger than a mini-van.

According to one Flames of War book, these were used as supply transport vehicles in the Levant, considered too weak to go up against medium Allied tanks.

The other ZT version that I am working on has a commander sticking up out of the hatch, which will really give you a sense of how small these were!  Again, it's another one of those curious early war designs.

The search for what actually worked commenced with war, and then the subsequent designs were created to counter the enemy innovations.

This is a size comparison... the Char B1 Bis and the Renault AMR-35.  More to come, so stay tuned!!
