Aside from some small actions and the employment of AS 5 to support the AEF near Cantigny on May 28, the heavy tanks were held in reserve. The Ludendorff offensive reached its high-water mark in June on the approaches to Paris, and Gen Mangin built up a counter-attack force with 163 medium tanks in four groupements. The French tanks attacked on June 11 in the Matz valley with a total of 51 Schneider and 96 St-Chamond tanks, losing 35 Schneiders and 37 St-Chamond tanks. Groupement III lost nearly 70% of its Schneiders and Groupement X lost nearly 80% of its St-Chamonds in the intense fighting.

Curiously enough, the original Chenu powerplants were replaced by German Maybach and Daimler-Benz zeppelin engines which had been acquired as war reparations. Besides the heavy tank programs, a number of light tank programs were also under way to supplement the Renault FT in 1919. Peugeot designed a small tank resembling the Renault FT but with a fixed superstructure and short 75mm gun; it was tested in April 1918 but none were ordered. Gen Estienne wanted to acquire 2,000 American-built Ford Three-Ton Tanks but only a handful arrived in September 1918 for trials and none saw combat.

The army serial numbers in white on the lower frame were issued in blocks to the various plants with Renault using numbers in the 66000–68000 range, Schneider (Somua) in the 69000 range, Delauney-Belleville in the 70000 range and Berliet in the 73000 range. Some of the manufacturers painted their own serial numbers on the left hull side under the turret. This is a typical Berliet example in the 2001–2801 range. The Renault FT light battalions were organized differently from heavy tank groups, so they used the playing-card symbols in the usual fashion to identify sections rather than batteries: Spade (1), Heart (2), Diamond (3), Club (echelon).
