Background[edit | edit source]

The Renault Char de bataille B1 bis (Battle tank B1 [suffix] bis) is a French Heavy Tank in Post Scriptum. It was manufactured by the French company Renault for the French Army. Its armament consists of one 47 mm SA35 L/32 cannon and one 7,5 mm MAC 31 machine gun mounted coaxially to the cannon. It is operated by a crew of 3; One driver, one gunner/commander and one hullgunner.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The B1 is relatively slow, even for a Heavy Tank. However, that is offset by the fact that it is very well armored all around and it greatly benefits from angling. It is best used as an infantry support vehicle due to the underpowered cannon when it comes to tank vs tank combat. Trucks, Jeep Willys and other lightly armored vehicles should be prime targets for the B1. A B1 supported by infantry, in a favorable position is a very hard threat to deal with and can be a nuisance when it's defending a point. After the release of Chapter II, the tank perforce in 1940 maps is increased thanks to the lack of any powerful antitank weaponry in the infantry, you are basicly inmune from anti-tank rifles. Tanks will always struggle to penetrate you, giving you a huge advantage in combat, however, your wrost enemy will be the Stug III, his frontal armor will bounce your AP rounds no matter what, and his cannon will not only penetrate you, but destroy you in one shot. The only way to neutralize the Stug III it is inmovilize it, first, you must take cover, wait until the tank destroyer is distracted, move to the sides and shoot at the engine in the tracks, the upper armor is sloped and will likely bounce, it will take one or two well placed shots to destroy it
