Renault UE Chenillette

Here's another weirdly wonderful little tankette.  Those bubbles to cover the crew's heads must have been very claustrophobic. The Chenillette was designed in the 30s to tow artillery or ammunition, so wasn't armed with anything to defend itself with. All of the Chenillettes that were captured by the German forces were provided with light machineguns or anti-tank weapons to provide mobile infantry support.

  1. That's cute! Might be cool to cruise the post apoc in, until you find something better.

    1. Yeah, it is cute. Not sure I'd like to be in there with the enclosed top though... it looks very cramped and dark. You could probably really easily replace the metal domes with transparent ones if there was an apocalypse though :)
