The Tank, Light, Mk VI was a British light tank, produced by Vickers in the late 1930s, which saw service during World War II.
About this creation
The Light Tank Mk VI was the sixth in the line of light tanks built by Vickers for the British Army during the interwar period. The company had achieved a degree of standardization with their previous five models, and the Mark VI was identical in all but a few respects. The turret, which had been expanded in the Mk V to allow a three-man crew to operate the tank, was further expanded to give room in its rear for a wireless set.
The weight of the tank was increased to 10,800 pounds (4,900 kg), which although heavier than previous models actually improved its handling characteristics, and an 88 horsepower (66 kW) engine was added to the model to increase its maximum speed to 56 km/h
It was armed with a .50 caliber Vickers machine gun and a .303 British Vickers water-cooled machine gun and crewed by three, a commander, gunner and driver.
There's really not much else to say about the Light Tank Mk VI, other then it was a terrible tank. It was so bad that the Germans who were so keen on using enemy vehicles as much as possible, left the Mk VI on the battlefield. They didn't even bother with it. The museum I work at has one, but i don't have a picture of it because it's that unimportant.
