The French plan of 1926, calling for the creation of a Light Infantry Support Tank, led to the development of the existing Renault NC1 prototype into the Char D1. One hundred and sixty vehicles of this type were produced between 1931 and 1935.
There was a pre-series of ten vehicles and later 150 standard vehicles were built. Until 1936 the vehicles were fitted with turrets because the intended cast ST2 turrets were not ready yet. The ST2 turret was armed with a short 47mm SA34 tank gun with a coaxial 7.5mm MG. The hull carried a 7.5mm MG in the bow.
The type did not serve as an infantry support tank as originally intended, but as France's major battle tank of the early thirties.
