Post by Kelvin » 25 Jan 2020 14:43

Hi, everyone, I am Looking for actual AFV strength of rebuilt DLM and DLC after 04th June 1940. When 1, 2 and 3rd DLM were evacuated from Dunkirk and abandoned all Equipment , tanks and Motor vehicles there and 1st and 4th DLC were destroyed in Ardennes and also lost most of their Equipment and both divisions were rebuilt as 4th and 7th DLM, I never see how many AFV did These Five divisions and also what Kind of These AFV they had ? thank

Hi, Loic, thank for your link. Those divisions were really very weak after rebuilding.

1st DLM and 2nd DLM each only had 10 x Hotchkiss-39, 10 x Somua-35 and 5 x Panhard 178.

3rd DlM only had 20 x Somua -35 and 6 x Panhard 178

4th DLM 10 x Somua-35, 10 x Hotchkiss-39 and 6 x Panhard 178

7th DLM : 22 x Hotchkiss-39, 20 x Hotchkiss-35, 10 x Panhard -178 and 12 x AMR-35.
