The French Char B1 bis Tank pack contains:

The Char B1 bis was an upgraded variant of the Char B1 with thicker armour and an APX4 turret with a longer-barrelled (L/32) 47mm SA 35 gun, to give the tank a real anti-tank capacity. It was the main production type from 8 April 1937 until June 1940. It was designed as a break-through tank, with trench crossing capabilities as the French Army believed that future campaigns would be decided by dislodging the enemy from key front sectors

To keep its larger, more powerful engine cool the Bis had its left air intake enlarged which formed a weak spot it the armour leading to reports of 37mm PAK guns taking them out at close range by firing at this intake

After the invasion of France many of these tanks found their way into German service. April 1937 until June 1940

Supplied unpainted & unassembled
