    They used a model that was derived almost completely from the renault, but they produced it themselves. Not during WWI though - in the years following.

    It was a KS tank, also called "Russian Renault", 14 pieces were built and used in Russian Civil War 1917-20. Then, in Soviet Union was produced a MS-1 vechicle ("malyi soprovozhdeniya" - light escort tank), known also as T-18. These light tank were used in Soviet-Chinese war in 1929, and later in 1938 near Khasan Lake they fought against Japanese troops. On the picture is KS tank.

    You put so much more detail into this then I did with mine :) Maybe one of them could be used as an Itailian version because I believe they had a very similar version which saw limited action up until early WW2.

    The AEF also used these (the only American light tank used in WW1) .

    Later on --

    "The M1917A1 was a modification carried out on 6 basic M1917 units in 1931. This modification increased the horsepower to 75 by using a Franklin series 145 air cooled engine. This modification increased the speed of the tank to a blistering 9+ mph - probably much too fast for the 2 crewmen inside!"

    The US also fielded a version dedicated to radio communications (see below)
