During its 25-year service, the Renault FT tank was used in many countries around the world: France, Italy, Poland, the United States, Belgium, Brazil, Greece, Turkey, China, the Baltic countries, Soviet Russia, Japan, Romania, the Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, and Yugoslavia. It was in service during both world wars. The structural arrangement created by L. Renault with its transmission and drive wheels at the rear, combat compartment in the middle of the hull, and a movable turret, has become a classic construction solution for tanks and is still used nowadays. It was a base for new tanks manufactured in the United States, Italy, and the Soviet Union.


"Another fine addition to the Photosniper 3D series from Kagero, interesting for the armour enthusiast for being the original true turreted tank that had a full 360-degree traverse and very helpful reference for modellers and their kits in any scale."

"The level of detail exposed is second to none and will assist with building and detailing any kit of this ground-breaking tin can. Highly recommended."
