Lorraine 38L Armoured Carrier (2) FR201
Lorraine 38L Armoured Carrier (FR201)
A peleton de châsseurs portés (light mechanised cavalry platoon) is composed of well-trained, well-equipped and well-armed troops with twice the number of light machine-guns as normal infantry. More importantly each squad of châsseurs is carried to battle in a Lorraine VBCP (Voiture Blindé de Châsseurs Portés) 38L.
Based on a supply carrier, the Lorraine 37L Tracteur de Ravitaillement, it can carry up to ten men—four men in an armoured cargo bay and six more in an armoured trailer.
This made the French Army the only combatant during the Battle for France fielding battalions mounted in fully-tracked armoured personnel carriers, and the only country with whole battalions of infantry in armoured personnel carriers in each of their armoured divisions at the start of the war.
