Schneider CA1 Radio Tank? Schneider CA1 TSF?
Permalink   


This Schneider has a wire stretched along its length and connected to a piece of metal. Looks suspiciously like an antenna or aerial for a wireless set.

Ce Schneider a un fil tendu sur toute sa longueur et relié à un morceau de métal. Regarde étrangement comme une antenne pour un ensemble telegraphie/telephonie sans fil.

From this film footage:

De ce film:

Mais non!

It's a semaphore device. Pulling the wire lifts the flap to reveal IIRC red & white markings to call for infantry support. Or something close to that. Not radio.

Update: I wasn't far out. I think Michel Tanker explained it a while back, and Steve Zaloga illustrates and describes same on pp 12 & 13 of the Osprey

French Tanks of World War I.
