Renault FT acceptance numbers
Permalink   


Hello!

I found the following infos:

Note No. 410 836 1/SA Ministry of Armaments and War Manufacturing/Automotive Service Management/Equipment from 1st October 1917).
I have the honor to report that the Renault light tanks that will be sent to the Army will be registered by me in the series 66001 to 75000.

Renault tanks in No. 66xxx - 67xxx - 68xxx
Schneider / Somua tanks in No. 69xxx
Delaunay-Belleville tanks in No. 70xxx
Berliet tanks in No. 73xxx

 

Does it mean, 73000 and higher is a Berliet-number and it ends with 75000?

I ask, because I´ve got a photo with a 75395

Or could it be a 73XXX ?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Cheers, Andy

There is a second part to the numbering instruction - it's on the Landships II article on the Renault FT contributed by "tanker" I believe.

"The numbering of specific manufacturers find themselves normally as in the numbering of the tank. The tank No. 0001 at Renault is No. 66001 and No. 2000, No. 68000

Renault tanks No. 0001-2000.
Schneider tanks / Somua No. 3001-3601
Delaunay-Belleville tanks No. 4001-4281
Tanks Berliet No. 2001-2801"

If the numbering regime is followed as per the example then the first tank from Berliet will be 75001 and the last 75801 which would put your 75395 close to the middle of the production run.

Hello Charlie!
Thanks a lot! That could be possible, but I have only sources, who speaks from "up to 75000".
Maybe those were the numbers in the war, and higher then 75000 were post-war? Just a guess....

Bonsoir,

There is no problem with this tank number ! It is well the number 73895.

High of number 3, number 8 and number 5 are clearly different

This Renault FT was built by Berliet.

Bon week-end - Michel
