The 47mm Mle 1937 (SA37 L/50) anti-tank gun was the best purpose-built anti-tank gun fielded by any army at the start of World War II if one discounts the German 88m Flak used in the anti-tank role. It could supposedly penetrate up to 72mm of armour at 1,000 metres. It sufficiently impressed the Germans that they immediately made use of examples that fell into their hands. After the fall of France…

The French army started World War II as the most powerful army in the world. Well-equipped, with excellent tanks and artillery, the infantry divisions were numerous and confident of fighting off the hated Boche as they had twenty two years before. This was not the same war though, and the French infantrymen found themselves all too often fighting off German armoured units which had outmanoeuvred t…

The most useful kinds of light artillery were often mountain guns, as these were more easily moved about and could be disassembled and carried by mules if necessary. All kinds of artillery would be used. The old World War I French 75mm field gun was one of the most common artillery pieces used by many nations at the start of the war, and no doubt a number fell into the hands of partisan forces. Mo…

Partisans had little in the way of anti-tank weaponry.

Some partisan groups were able to get hold of anti-tank rifles such as the British Boys or local ex-army weapons PIAT anti-tank launchers were among…

The Panhard 178 or "Pan-Pan" was an advanced French reconnaissance 4x4 armoured car that was designed for the French Cavalry before World War II.
