Early Preview: Renault FT-17

Welcome Soldiers!

Tanks are still on the agenda and we have an early preview ready for the Renault FT! Following the Mark IV being shown on Combles, the team have worked to get the french-made Renault FT-17 up and running as well.

Equipped with a 37mm Putreaux Cannon and able to glide over trenches, the FT-17 will break through enemy lines with ease. Seen here operating around Chateau-Thierry, we loaded into the map to test the tank moving through undulating terrain and around the chateau grounds.

We recently had the opportunity during an internal playtest to run the Renault alongside some Infantry Support. While damage models are still being thought out, you can start to see how these machines will change the look of the battlefield when they arrive later this year.

Expect more footage of the Renault FT-17 before it arrives along with those important details on damage models. As always, stay posted Soldier!
