[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

The Renault FT is a French tier 1 light tank.

The vehicle entered service in 1917, with 3,177 vehicles manufactured by the end of World War I and 3,800 vehicles produced in total. At the beginning of World War II, a total of 1,560 vehicles were in service.

It is the first French tank available to the player. It has good acceleration, but very poor top-speed. The available guns have only sub-par damage-potential, but a very high firing-rate. The armor is among the thickest in its tier.

The Renault FT leads to the Renault FT AC, the Hotchkiss H35, the Renault FT 75 BS, the D1, the Renault R35, and the FCM 36.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good turret armour
  • Good damage
  • Good accuracy and elevation arc
  • Good signal range


Cons:


  • Poor top speed and traverse speed
  • Poor rate of fire
  • Poor turret traverse speed


Performance

The FT can play out its strengths on maps with more narrow sections, where you can essentially be a roadblock for enemy tanks. Something to note that the gun elevation is as good as the T57, but the gun depression is very poor (i.e. it's good at shooting up, but bad at shooting down).


Early Research

  • Your underpowered engine is a liability. Upgrade to the Renault M26.2F27 Engine as soon as possible
  • A slow tank at the best of times, the Renault FT should not serve as a scout. Although the ER 52 is an impressive Radio, it should be saved for last.

Historical Info

This tank, prototype of all modern tanks whose formula has hardly varied (fighting compartment with the main armament turret at the front, rear engine) has become the symbol of the victory of 1918. The various models that differ only in the turret that could be round or octagonal cast steel riveted steel. The prototype of Renault FT was developed in October 1916. Faced with resistance from some technical authorities, General Estienne spoke directly to Marshal Joffre, asking him to allow the construction of four tanks of 1000 tons, armed with a gun - or some of a small cannon 37 mm - placed in the turret of a limited height, protected against small arms, and able to reach speeds of 12 km / hour.

One of the qualities of the machine was to be its ability to descend into the gully and out, instead of trying to climb over. From February 22, 1917, an initial order of 150 tanks gunners had passed, soon followed by a request from General Pétain 3350 for additional copies. The official test of the tank called Renault FT took place April 9, 1917, with the immediate result to increase to 1,000 the number of copies ordered in addition to the first 150. During the second decade of July, they tried the turret with the piece of 37 mm which had decided to arm 650 tanks. It was assigned to several production companies and a total of 7820 FT tanks were ordered with 3940 the firm Renault. At the time of the armistice, only 3177 copies had been delivered (of which several hundred were destroyed in combat) but production continued, so that in 1921 there were 3728 (2100 armed with machine guns, 1246 37 mm cannon, 39 cannon, 75 mm, 188 radio, without armament and 155 others classified as "school"). The unit price was around 56 000 francs at the time.


The technique The design included a light tank shell door, made of plates bolted to the profiles. The pads of the track, with a length of 340 mm, guaranteed a good grip on any terrain. Inside the box was divided into two distinct parts: fighting compartment and engine compartment. In the first pilot was sitting on a seat with adjustable back and, in the turret, the gunner used the machine gun or cannon. You can find this compartment with two doors that formed the roof and the beach front. Originally, there were no other openings, but the prototype was equipped with a hatch at the rear of the turret hatch, which was converted into a double door. The pilot's visibility was provided by three slots of sight. Motor, gears, radiator and fuel tank were accessible only from outside. You could check by lifting the flaps on the roof of the engine compartment. The propellant was a 4-cylinder equipped with a Zenith carburetor supplied with gasoline even if the tank was strongly inclined by a diaphragm pump.

The magneto ignition was switched on and manually (by means of a crank) was done from both the outside and inside the tank. The shield vulnerable parts were 16 mm thick. or semi-automatic gun Puteaux of 37/21 (with 240 explosive projectiles, 12-shot). To facilitate the crossing of trenches, the Renault FT was provided with a removable tail which he could rely.

In 1939 the tank FT is totally obsolete and its use is intended only for side missions: protection of airfields and depots, monitoring hot spots. The disastrous campaign of spring 1940 will force the French army to challenge the venerable FT front line crews and their selfless sacrifice to delay Nevita defeat.

The tanks used in 1940 are characterized by the presence of tricolor cockades affixed to the body and the turret. Technically these are exactly the same as those that have taken place in 1918.
