The Renault FT-17 was a French light tank that was used during WWI. It was utilized by France, Belgium, Turkey, Poland, and others. In addition, it continued to be used during the second World War. It was the most effective armoured vehicle of the Great War, and its construction became the basis for the forthcoming construction that is used even today. The support of the Infantry was its goal. Also, the rounded tail piece at the rear of a tank facilitated the crossing of trenches and a fully rotating turret enabled it to fight in gun battles in all directions. This tank model is unique due to its characteristic, narrow, movable tracks. COBI designers have perfectly reproduced these details and proportions of this tank. The model includes a figure of a tankman equipped with binoculars and a revolver.
