Schneider CA1 - WIP

Recommended Posts

A few days ago, Ojcar mentioned a French Schneider tank in the "What do we need" thread. I thought that would be a nice tank to have. It was armed with a short barrel 75mm gun in the front and two Hotchkiss machine guns on the sides. It was kind of a self-propelled pillbox. The Schneider was first used in April 1917 on the Western Front. At least one was used on the Italian Front in late 1918. After the war, some were sold to Spain and they were used in the Rif War, and later, by both sides in the Spanish Civil War.

 

I'm finishing the skins and tweaking the data files now. I should be uploading it tomorrow.

I have uploaded the Schneider CA1 and it will be available after it gets administrator approval. I included a plain grey skin along with the camo skin shown above.

Thanks, Stephen. Nice addition. Another forgotten piece of WW1 history.

Thank you gentlemen. Getting all the edges of the camo to line up on the different parts was... interesting. Thanks also to Ojcar for suggesting the Schneider.
