In 2002, perhaps because Jesus Dapena had published some photos of Renault FT-17 tanks in the Rif, Santiago Dominguez sent Jesus some more photos of the Spanish FT-17s. But he also included photos of the more elusive Schneider M16 CA1 Tanks used by the Spanish in the Rif War. Jesus recently asked me to republish them.
FT-17 tank. The picture is titled “Tank on its way to the enemy trenches”.
FT-17 TSH for wireless communications. The picture is titled “The infantry command tank descending from its carrier.”
Two FT-17 and one FT-17 TSH tanks (in the middle), and two Schneider M16 CA1 tanks barely visible at the left and right edges of the picture.
This is a rare picture of a Schneider M16 CA1 tank in the Rif War. The picture is titled “Artillery tank about to descend from its carrier”.
