Not a howitzer but the 1897 75mm field gun. the same as was mounted to the  st-chamond.

 

the tank was simply called the FT-75

Close, but this version actually had an official name. :)

Renault FT STA self-propelled gun 1918

 

Sometimes known as the 75 crawler or 75 chenilles which means caterpillars in french.

Correct!

 

From my book, "The last Renault FT SPG designed was that of the "Section Technique de l'Artillerie" (STA) which had been studying SPG design since May 1918. The rear of the FT chassis was opened out to create a platform for the 75 mm mle 1897 field gun crew and the gun was mounted to fire over the front of the vehicle. The gun was able to be elevated from -5° to +41° with 11° of traverse. The SPG carried 90 rounds of ammunition. Later modifications to the STA SPG included extending the rear platform, adding a folding spade to prevent movement of the vehicle during firing, and the addition of an 8 mm Hotchkiss Machine Gun for crew defense."

Found it listed as a Swedish light tank somewhere.  Doesn't look like a Schofield.

Is that the Landsverk L-30 Light Tank? Or maybe it's the even rarer L-80 version? Edit: after doing some research I don't think the L-80 even went into the prototype stage.

(answering to the MAIN/FIRST photo by poster) It's a tank of the Neubaufahrzeug tank prototype series. It's a prototype so I can't tell which variant it is :(
(answering to latest/rikske66's post) I give up :P I did some research, and it's said to be a Swedish tank~
Anyway here's a new one:

Australian AC4 Sentinel Tank

I thought Thunderbolt name applied only to the proposed AC3 that was to be equipped with the 25lbr.

It's the AC IV "Thunderbolt" in the other game, which is a different machine. Also, calling that machine the "Thunderbolt" is wrong, as that was the AC III, however, the AC IV was going to use the AC III hull so it could have been an acceptable name.

 

The picture however is the 17-Pdr anti-tank gun armed test vehicle, AC1 E1, also called AC4 Experimental in this game.
