FCM 2C's internal plans

Post by alain adam » 23 Dec 2017 20:50

Hy everybody ,
This short message to indicate i've been published in the last french magazine "Tracks & Tanks" ( n.65 , editions caraKtere ) , and you will find in it the internal plans of this tank , and pictures about tests of the first FCM 2C tank , in 1921 ... without engine !
In fact , these plans disapeared since WW2 and i provide them in high definition on my website , for all historians / researchers / passionates / modelers .
I hope this will help to have a better understanding about this multi-turret tank , and because it was unpublished till today , i guess it will have some interest for some of you .
You can find the HD plans at this adress :
http://atf40.fr/AADAM/plan2C.html

Don't hesitate to inform your friends who love this tank , about this information . This web page will be improved with other informations , sketchs & plans within some weeks , with the collaboration of Jean-Michel Adenot , a specialist about this tank , and Antoine Misner ( from the website chars-francais.net ) , and maybe informations from you , readers of this message ( i hope so !) .

Of course , don't hesitate to order the magazine if you want to see the pictures , but don't forget it's a french magazine ( so french text , witch explain the engine problems and some other things unpublished ) . You will find a direct link to the publisher with the plans , if you're interested .

Don't hesitate too , if you have some questions about these really new informations on FCM 2C ( or other subject on this french tank ) .

Regards , and merry Xmas ,

Thanks for posts this document. Certainly of interest to the affciandos of tanks. As a grognard of old school militaralia , is it possible to obtain a paper copy of this set of documents? I'm thinking of the old days when such things decorated the walls of tank & armor fans.

Hello Carl and happy new year .
These copies are from NARA , and i'm not sure you can ask to get any paper document without pay something .

Regards ,
