The Renault FT-17 was a World War 1 tank, which saw action during World War 2 in both the French army (after being modified) and later the German army (who used it for behind-the-front duties after having captured a number of them from the French after Fall Gelb). It was also license-produced by USA (under the designation Six Ton Tank Model 1917) during World War 1 and later by Italy (under the designation Fiat 3000).
The Renault FT-17 was inteded to be replaced by the Renault R35, but lack of training forced the Renault FT-17 into service during the German invasion in 1940.
