Text in original Preserved Tanks In France publication:

This vehicle dates from 1939 and was an experimental adaptation of a Char B1-bis. It was converted by the French Engineers for destroying mines. It had its turret removed, and three sets of solid heavy disc rollers with lifting gear were fitted in front of it to be pushed along the ground to detonate mines. The vehicle never went into series production and this is the only surviving example of the type. It was acquired from the Army Engineer Museum at Avrillé (q.v.)
