History! by Zhukov - The Military History Emporium

German soldiers investigate a captured French Renault FT taken during the fighting around Rouen. Although the FT was of World War I vintage and long ago obsolete, it still was used in limited numbers by the French at the beginning of World War II. Although intended for reserve use only - such as airbase defense, at first, with the premier French units mostly cut off by the German envelopment in the north-east, any and all available equipment was sent to the front to try and halt the swift German advance.
