First used in battle in 1918 during the First World War, some 1600 Renault FT-17 light tanks were still in service with the French Army in 1939. While the French had several modern tanks, many of which were better than their German counterparts, the FT-17 remained on the front lines in its original role of supporting infantry attacks. The FT-17 was the most successful tank of the First World War, and remained in the arsenals of the armed forces of Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Czechoslovakia, Finland, Holland, Japan, Poland, Spain, and the United States throughout the interwar period. Following the defeat of France, the Germans used most French tanks either for training or directly incorporated them into their panzer units, and the Renault FT-17 remained in use for police duties in occupied countries.
