Renault FT-17 Tank. The FT-17 was one of the success stories of the First World War. The small tank became mechanically reliable after some initial teething problems and owing to it's size and narrow body, was a relatively hard target for German artillerymen. But the standout feature of the FT-17 was the 360 degree rotating turret, which has been the mainstay of tank designs ever since. The version in the foreground is a wireless or command tank.

This chart shows the type of tank which performed signal service at the battle of Cambrai in 1917 and despite their initial success, German artillery and infantry defences exposed the frailties of their armour and the vehicles became mostly ineffective after the first day. They were used again with greater success during the final advance of the British armies in World War One.
