I think the "Schneider" was most needed by the Romanian Army in the first two years of the fight with Soviet Union.
This brings the question: was the "Schneider" able to punch through the frontal armor of a T-34 ? Even against the 1940 or 1941 design versions, that had thinner armor than the later models.
As far as I know, the answer is NO .

Did Romania fight against T 34 units in the first campaign ( Bessarabia) ?

If not, the Schneider was very good against the obsolete soviet tanks ( like T-28)

Our campaign in 1941 did not end with the liberation of Bessarabia.
Also, in my previous comment I wrote: ". . . was most needed . . . in the first two years of . . . fight " .
This means up to June 1943.
Why did I write that the "Schneider" was most needed in the first two years ?
Simply because after that the Romanian Army started to have some better options, too little too late: the 75 mm bought from Germany, the 76 mm captured from the Red Army, and finally the 75 mm that we made ourselves.
