Char b1 3D Model
By Digital Artist: Woody100
The Char B1 was a French heavy tank manufactured before the Second World War.
The Char B1 was a specialised heavy break-through vehicle, originally conceived as a self-propelled gun with a 75 mm howitzer in the hull; later a 47 mm gun in a turret was added, to allow it to function also as a Char de Bataille, a "battle tank" fighting enemy armour, equipping the armoured divisions of the Infantry Arm. Starting in the early twenties, its development and production were repeatedly delayed, resulting in a vehicle that was both technologically complex and expensive, and already obsolescent when real mass-production started in the late thirties of a derived version, the Char B1 "bis". Of a second uparmoured version, the Char B1 "ter", only two prototypes were built.
