History: The Schneider CA 1 (originally called the Schneider CA) was the first French tank.
The Schneider tank was inspired by the need to break the stalemate of trench warfare on the Western Front during most of the Great War.
His mission was to open passages for the infantry through the barbed wire and then to remove the German machine gun nests.
After a first concept by Jacques Quellennec in November 1914, the tank was developed from May 1915 by the engineer Eugène Brillié, parallel to the British development of the same year.
Colonel Jean Baptiste Eugene Estienne in December 1915 began pushing for the formation of French armored units, leading to an order in February 1916 of the first four hundred Schneider CA tanks, which were manufactured by SOMUA, a subsidiary of Schneider located in the suburb of Paris, between September 1916 and August 1918.
The tank was of type "box", lack of a turret, with the main armament, a short barrel of 75 mm, on the right side.
Generally, it is considered of very imperfect design, even for the time, because of a poor lay-out, of an insufficient firepower, of a very restricted interior and lower mobility because of a section of nose overhanging.
Improved models were almost immediately studied but the production of these, the Schneider CA 2, CA 3 and CA 4, were finally canceled.
The Schneider CA 1 was widely used in fights during the last years of the war.
Their first action on April 16, 1917 was largely a failure, tank units suffering heavy losses, but subsequent engagements were more effective.
In 1918, Schneider tanks played an important role in stopping the German spring offensive and broke the German front during the French offensives of the summer.
They were active until the end of September 1918, less than two months before the armistice of November 11, 1918, their number having decreased considerably.
After the war, the surviving tanks were rebuilt like most utility vehicles, but six Schneider tanks were deployed by Spain in the Rif war in Morocco, and the tank was used for the last time in the beginning of the war.
the Spanish Civil War.
