Char 2C IRL

Picardie, one of the 10 Char 2Cs produced in reality

The FCM Char 2C was a French super-heavy tank developed by the Forges & Chantiers de la Méditerranée shipyard during World War I. The French's answer to the British Mark V Landship, the Char 2C was a massive and extremely heavy tank designed to break through enemy fortifications and cross directly over trenches. However, due to development issues and the much cheaper FT-17 tank already being in French service, the Char 2C was not completed until after the war in 1921 and only 10 units were created. The Char 2C was armed with a 75mm main gun and 4 secondary Hotchkiss 8mm machine gun ports.

Heavy, slow, and vulnerable to advancements in anti-tank weapons, the Char 2C quickly became obsolete during the 1930s, and the few units created saw use only as propaganda tools for the French during World War II before being destroyed or captured by Germany during the Battle of France. Weighing 69 tons fully loaded, the Char 2C is notable as the first super-heavy tank created, and the only one to ever see operational use in any capacity.[1] [2]

TriviaEdit

  • The Char 2C featured in game is the Provence, the second Char 2C produced, denoted by the 92 painted on the hull.
  • The Char 2C's appearance in Battlefield 1 is anachronistic; although a prototype known as the FCM 1A had been completed in December 1917 in reality, said prototype was scrapped shortly after creation and had several design differences from the final Char 2C.
