France's only anti-aircraft weapon (besides the prototype FCM F1 and static Fortified Position), the Camel is weak in hitpoints and strength, and should always be used in groups of five or more. Placing Camels in town squares or woods will help in surprise attacks against airplanes. If you are using this tactic, remember to always support the Camel with artillery or infantry.

HistoryEdit

Camel

After World War I the French military expressed a need for an anti-aircraft autocannon. The Hotchkiss company submitted its 25 mm design, but it was rejected as being too slow-firing, so the weapon was proposed for export instead. In 1938, as the international situation was worsening, and the favoured Schneider 37 mm autocannon was still not ready for production, the French military decided to reconsider its refusal to Hotchkiss, who had just won a contract with Romania.

The export guns were held in France and impressed into domestic service. The original tripod was found to be unstable, which led to the development of a revised variant with a triangular base with a two-wheel carriage. This new variant was chosen for mass production, but at the time of the German attack in May 1940, only a few hundred of these guns were in service. With them and only approximately two hundred Oerlikons, the lack of modern light AA guns greatly hampered the French army in the campaign.

Pros and ConsEdit

-It has the lowest damage output of any AA gun.

-Being the worst AA gun is not compensated for by lower price or anything.
