OverviewThe FCM 36 was a French light tank produced from 1938 to 1939. Only 100 were produced as they were expensive to manufacture. During May and June, the FCM 36 fought alongside the Renault R-35 against the Germans. Afterwards, 50 were captured and converted into 75mm and 105mm German gun carriages.
