The Renault R-35 is a popular French light infantry tank (Char légere model 1935R) from the early days of World War II. The name Renault R-35, although very popular, was not an official term. The R-35 was the successor to the old Renault FT-17 tank, from the Great War. The advantage of the tank was a modern design and good armor at that time. The disadvantage was certainly the engine with too little performance and a one-man turret forcing the commander of the vehicle to perform duties intended in other vehicles for several crew members. Also remembering the Great War, the 37 mm cannon was no longer characterized by the highest efficiency.
Poland purchased 100 Renault R-35 tanks from France. in July 1939, the first batch of about 50 pieces arrived. They were used in September 1939. In the face of the disaster, some of the machines were sent to Romania and Hungary. The transport of another 50 pieces did not manage to reach Poland.
