Background[edit | edit source]

The Renault Char de bataille B1 bis (Battle tank B1 [suffix] bis) is a German captured Heavy Tank in Post Scriptum. It was originally 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 and one commander.

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.
