The Lorraine 37L tank destroyer is used to contemplate the ARL 44 as a cheaper and more capable anti-tank weapon, and is an upgrade on the Laffly W15. It is also faster and more mobile than France's armor, but can only shoot when stationary. Interestingly, if you look closely, you can see the Gun/Gun Platform moving with a wider arch, unusually, this the few vehicles to have a wider arch without a turret than any other unit.

HistoryEdit

In 1934 the order was given to design a munition supply vehicle to increase the operational range of independent tank units. The same year the Renault 36R was selected for further development; three hundred were ordered from 1938. However this tractor was only partially armored; on 17 April 1936 a new set of specifications was drafted for a fully armored vehicle to deliver fuel and munitions to tanks fighting on the frontline.

A prototype was built in 1937 and production started in 1939. In this period also two armoured personnel carriers and a tank destroyer project were based on its chassis. Mainly equipping the larger mechanised units of the French Infantry Arm, the type was extensively employed during the Battle of France in 1940. After the defeat of France, in Vichy France a clandestine manufacture was continued, culminating in a small AFV production after the liberation and bringing the total production to about 630 in 1945. Germany used captured vehicles in their original role of carrier and later, finding the suspension system to be particularly reliable, rebuilt many into tank destroyers of the Marder I or into self-propelled artillery.
