Renault was already looking for improvements to its best-seller, the FT, even as far back as 1918. This vehicle would have succeeded the regular FT after 12,000 would have been produced. These plans never realized and, in 1922, budget cuts meant that any further development of an enhanced design was postponed. There were already 2800 AVFs, with an organic force of 1260 machines already, all being FTs.
Some complacency, both from political and military sides, also followed this matter of fact. By then, France had the biggest armoured force in the world. There were some concerns, however, about the lack of versatility of these tanks in peacetime, notably for colonial duty. The main flaw in the Renault design was the very low top speed, average infantry pace. Both the engine and suspension had to be redrawn or improved to solve these issues.
The file contains the unit and pcx files. Model is not my own creation. Wyrmshadow helped with the animation files. I merely put the pieces together and cleaned up the model for CivIII and added some what if pieces. A big thanks to everyone that helped out!
