Somua S35

Somua was an acronym for Société d'outillage mécanique et d'usinage d'artillerie.
The SOMUA S35 was a French cavalry tank of the Second World War. Built from 1936 until 1940 to equip the armoured divisions of the Cavalry, it was for its time a relatively agile medium-weight tank, superior in armour and armament to both its French and foreign competitors. It was constructed from well-sloped, mainly cast, armour sections. During the German invasion of May 1940, the SOMUA S35 proved to be a tactically effective type, but this was negated by strategic mistakes in deploying its units. After the defeat of France in June 1940, limiting production to a number of 430, captured SOMUA S35s were used by the Axis powers.
