FCM 2C Superheavy Tank

Designed in 1918 as a new heavy breakthrough tank, it was designed to travel deep amongst the German defenses and wreck havoc. As such it became a heavy, troublesome design and its huge weight of 70 tons made it more of a burden amongst units equipped with it. Over 300 were made by the wars end but none made it to see any action, and as such were placed after the war to support infantry formations as a heavy support unit. The resurrecting idea of a dedicated heavy tank regiment brought these behemoths back into action as a spearhead of the Heavy Mechanized Regiment, however their slow speed always placed them at the rear of the unit and they were seen as a handicap instead of the heavy vanguard. As such the AMX-42 was seen as a blessing to the super heavy tank forces of the French army and brought great pride to them. However the production of the AMX was very slow and the majority of the super heavy infantry support units and half of all super heavy tank platoons within the HMR were still equipped with the FCM 2C. It was a poor, underpowered design and due to its poor armor (by 1940 standards) suffered at the hands marauding panzer formations and dive bombers. Many were captured, but these were quickly scrapped and used to produce more effective machines.
