  • About the Somua S35:

    The Somua was a French Cavalry tank used during WWII, built from 1936 until 1940 to equip the armored divisions of the Cavalry. It was a relatively agile medium-weight tank, superior in armor and armament to its French and foreign competitors. It was constructed from well-sloped, mainly cast, armor sections that made it expensive to produce and time-consuming to maintain. 

    During the German invasion of May 1940, the Somua S35 proved itself to be a tactically effective type, but this was negated by the French command’s strategic mistakes in deploying Cavalry armored divisions. After the defeat of France in June 1940, production was limited to about 440. Captured Somua S35s were used by the Axis powers, some of them on the Eastern Front.
