Miscellaneous Info: The Renault Model 1914 armored car was originally designed as an anti-aircraft vehicle.  However, it was not very effective as the weapon could not be fully elevated to engage air targets.  Very soon afterwards, an improved vehicle design was developed (the Model 1915 Car) primarily for ground operations, and the Model 1914's were quickly supplanted. Some of those Model 1914 vehicles were stripped of armament and used as an early type of armored personnel carrier.
