my photo of the FT17 Renault light tank of World War One at the Base Borden Military Museum, Angus, Ontario.
Renault FT 17 light tank
Used in the later stages of The Great War by French and US Armies, this French tank design was revolutionary for the first operational armoured vehicle (tank) with a fully rotating turret. Crew of 2 (commander and driver) weighed 6.5 tonnes, top speed of 7 kph and carried its armament in its turret: a 37mm gun and a 7.92 machine gun. The Renault FT was plagued by radiator fan belt and cooling system problems throughout the war. Only 84 were produced in 1917 but 2,697 were delivered in 1918 before the Armistice.
