Schneider CA.1 (GFBX01)

Schneider CA.1 (GFR090)
Includes one Schneider CA.1 tank

The first French heavy tank, the Schneider CA.1, weighed about 12.6 tons and was armed with a short 75mm cannon and two Hotchkiss machine-guns. The 60hp Schneider gasoline engine of the CA.1 gave the tank a top speed of 8.1kmph (5 mph); however, it normally moved at 2-3kmph due to the difficulty of driving it. While not the best-designed French tank of the war, the CA.1 was used until the final battles in 1918.

1918 saw great changes in the warfare of the Western Front. Russia pulled out of the war, freeing thousands more German troops to push the Allies back huge distances. The Allied counteroffensives, with the new tanks, evolving tactics, and the arrival of the Americans, forced the Germans back towards their own borders and defeat.

Assembling the Schneider CA.1

Step 1. Begin by attaching the tracks to the resin hull.

Note:
The two track pieces are symmetrical, so you don't have to worry about putting them on the wrong side. Just make sure the large wheel is at the front.

Step 3: Remove the side-mounted MGS from the sprue using a pair of clippers, and trim any excess metal with a sharp hobby knife or a file. Glue each MG in place in the ball-mount on either side of the vehicle. Below: The completed Schneider CA.1.
