Description

Like the British, the French shared the task of anti-tank defence between the infantry and the artillery. While the infantry had their CDAC, the artillery had a Batterie Divisionnaire Anti-Chars (BDAC), or Divisional Anti-tank Battery, as the 10th Battery of the artillery regiment. This battery had four platoons, each with two new 47mm SA-37 APX anti-tank guns. It was a very efficient weapon, especially given the (then) thin armour of German tanks of the time, but some reserve units still had old 75mm field guns.
