Today we are showing off the main French mad variant of the Lorraine 37L tractor from last time: the Lorraine 38L armoured personnel carrier.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are following on from the Lorraine 37L supply vehicle with the armoured personnel carrier variant.

Lorraine 38L

The Lorraine 37L would see a couple of developments by the French, but the most significant of these would be the 38L. This was to be an armoured personnel carrier able to fit a squad of 10 chasseurs to support tanks with mopping up after a breakthrough. The tractors were modified with an armoured box bolted to the cargo bin to protect 4 riders, with the remaining 6 carried in a similarly constructed trailer.

Access to these compartments was by a rather crude hatch on the rear, and there was very limited visibility from within. Mobility over rough terrain with the trailer fitted was poor and while it was intended to be able to tow a 25mm antitank gun, most of these guns could only stand up to horse towing. Overall, only about 150 were delivered before the armistice, where they armed the 5th and 17th BCP. Ours was made by Seth Soldier, adapted from our Marder I made by Toddel.

That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, our Twitter, our subreddit, and/or Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
