Description

As the French army underwent mechanization in the 1920’s, the need arose for a small, tracked armored vehicle capable of transporting supplies and weapons to the front lines and towing light artillery. In October 1930, Renault’s armored carrier UE was chosen by the French army from among several competing designs and production of the first 60 operational vehicles was completed by September 1932.

At 2.8m long, 1.74m wide, and 2.6 tons fully loaded, it was a sturdy, compact design that featured a riveted joint hull construction and a reliable suspension with garter beams supporting the road wheels. The two member driver/navigator crew was housed in a central compartment, but since their heads protruded from the chassis, special dome-shaped hatches were mounted to augment the carrier’s 9mm armor and protect against small-arms fire and shrapnel.
