Groupement Prost Touland actual strength 1940

Post by Kelvin » 15 Jun 2021 13:40

Hello, Groupement Prost Touland originally had 4 x squadrons : 2 x motorcycle sqns , 1 x ACG=1 (AMC-35) tank squadron with 13 tanks and 1 x AMD squadron possibly Panhard 178. When it was rushed to front, any reinforcement to this Groupement, like artillery, infantry battaion, sapper or something else ? Thank

hello

the word groupement is quite protean with a great elasticity plasticity gathering from few men to a whole Army but in this case
it is only and remains a provisional motorised cavalry "groupement"
