The Char Léger Renault FT, often simply called the Renault FT, is a French light tank that revolutionised tank design during World War I. Introduced in 1917, it was the first tank to feature a fully rotating turret, which became a standard in future tank designs. Designed by Rodolphe Ernst-Metzmaier and manufactured by Renault, the FT was lightweight and highly maneuverable, with a crew of two – a driver and a gunner. Its armament consisted of either a 37mm Puteaux SA 18 gun or an 8mm Hotchkiss M1914 machine gun, providing versatility in combat roles. The Renault FT was used effectively in the latter stages of World War I, demonstrating its ability to cross trenches and navigate the challenging terrain of the Western Front. Its innovative design influenced tank development worldwide, and many nations adopted the FT or its design principles for their own armoured forces. After World War I, the Renault FT continued to serve in various conflicts and remained in use into the early years of World War II, cementing its legacy as one of the most significant tanks in military history.
