Belgian armour

The Belgian Army had approximately 200 AFVs on 10th May 1940 (the date of the German invasion) assigned in "penny packets" to various infantry and cavalry divisions for use as support weapons. The Belgians looked upon their AFVs as defensive weapons.

From zero in September 1939, our small country, Belgium has also played a roll in this conflict.
Belgium has participated in numerous operations including the first evacuation of the Port of Dunkirk.
With some old boats, she helped in the evacuation of hundreds of soldiers.
