Description

This was the appearance of the Saint-Chamond Tank after its first upgrade. It was armed with the 75 Tir Rapide (TR) Model 12 Cannon. The vehicle featured four roof turrets, two observation turrets forward, one on either side, with one between them for venting the gunsmoke after the firing of the cannon. The fourth turret was at the rear on the left hand side, and was used by the driver whilst driving backwards. The turrets were in fact weak spots of the tank?s structure, and it was quite common that machine gun fire would shoot away the turrets. The observation turrets were therefore removed for the later version.
