French Renault Armored Car (M.G. type) Model 1915 - (Auto-Mitrailleuse Renault M1915).

A French Motorized Armored Unit of the Cavalry (Groupe d 'Auto-Mitrailleuses et Auto-Canons de la Cavalerie - GAMAC), to await of counterattack, from the southeast, the advance of the German troops over the course of the Second Battle of the Marne.

The photograph was taken during a stop in the Village of Boursault, near the front, at an early date to July 15, 1918.

The Roman numerals of this Renault Armored Car (M. IV) corresponds to the 2nd vehicle of the 2nd Section of one Group (GAMAC) (*).

The three sections that made up the Group consisted, each, by two Renault Armored Cars (M.G.), a Peugeot Armored Car (armed with a 37-mm. cannon), a motorcycle and a liaison car.

In some Groups, the Renault Armored Cars (M.G.). were replaced by Peugeot Armored Cars (M.G.).

(*) By the numeration we can deduce that the vehicle should belong to the First Group of Auto-Cannons and Auto-Machine-Guns of the Cavalry.

Una unidad de Coches Blindados Franceses (Groupe d 'Auto-Mitrailleuses et Auto-Canons de la Cavalerie - GAMAC), a la espera de contraatacar, desde el sureste, el avance de las tropas alemanas durante el transcurso de la Segunda Batalla del Marne.

La fotografía fue tomada durante un alto realizado en la Villa de Boursault, próxima al frente, en fecha próxima al 15 de Julio de 1918.

La numeración romana de esta Autoametralladora Blindada Renault (M. IV) corresponde al 2º vehículo de la 2ª Sección de un Grupo (GAMAC) (*).

Las tres Secciones que componían el Grupo estaban formadas, cada una de ellas, por dos Autoametralladoras Blindadas Renault, un Autocañón Blindado Peugeot (armado con un cañón de 37-mm.), una motocicleta y un coche de enlace.

En algunos Grupos, las Autoametralladoras Blindadas Renault fueron sustituidas por Autoametralladoras Blindadas Peugeot.

(*) Por la numeración podemos deducir que el vehículo debería pertenecer al Primer Grupo de Auto-Cañones y Auto-Ametralladoras de la Caballería.
