Recording of the French Hotchkiss H39 tank, also known as Char léger modèle 1935 H modifié 39, with a Hotchkiss 6-cylinder inline 6L engine.
The French Hotchkiss H39 tank sound collection includes 266 clips in 23.79 gigabytes of audio. Also known as Char léger modèle 1935 H modifié 39 and similar to the 38 H or H38, it showcases the sound of a late 1930s to early 1940s version of the tank with a Hotchkiss 6-cylinder inline 6L engine running at 120 bhp with top speed of 36.5 km/h.
The sound bundle shares 11 synchronized takes from a total of 33 onboard and exterior channels. The 11 onboard perspectives mount microphones in the interior, and at the engine, exhaust, tracks, and cannon. The 10 exterior perspectives arrange microphones in four positions and with a tracking perspective and a 5.0 surround microphone. Together, they gather the sound of the tank while driving and reversing at slow, medium, and fast speeds, as well as idling, shutting down, starting up, and false starts.
The package features embedded metadata in every clip, five custom mixes of the onboard perspectives, Pro Tools and Reaper mixing sessions, and metadata keyword import files in 7 languages.
