French Tankbusters

Post by Bren » 06 Dec 2018 02:36

Anyone have any information on the French using aircraft to attack tanks in 1940?

I understand the Air Force used 20-mm AP ammunition in some fighters armed with Hispano-Suiza 9 cannon - and that they had some success.

I recall reading a while back that a number of MS406s were used in this role but their success was limited due to the lack of appropriate AP ammunition.
