After the defeat of France in the summer of 1940, a large number of French armored vehicles fell into the hands of the Wehrmacht. Many samples went to the winners in perfect condition. Later, the German army used them in various combat operations, and also used them as auxiliary and training equipment.

Among the captured samples were the FCM 36 tanks, which were previously part of two French tank battalions. Before the defeat of France, they managed to take part in several combat episodes in the spring and summer of 1940. The total number of these combat vehicles received by the Wehrmacht numbered about 50 copies. Later, many of them became the basis for the creation of self-propelled anti-tank guns and self-propelled howitzers.
