Vickers Mk VI Light Tank

painting & photography by Kenneth Chipman

The Vickers Light Tank Mark VI represented the peak of development of this light tank series. They were agile vehicles, capable of impressive cross-country speeds, and armed with both 12.7mm (.50 cal) and a 7.7mm (.303 cal) machine guns in the two-man turret.They were widely used throughout the 1930s and the early war years, many for policing duties in the far-flung regions of the empire. During action in WWII, however, they soon revealed themselves as being virtually useless, especially against other tanks.The thin armour, penetrated even by small-caliber armour-piercing projectiles, and the mounting of nothing heavier than a machine gun made them of little use as comabt tanks. This was proven conclusively in France during 1940 when their deployment as such served to have them suffer accordingly. Unfortunately, the lack of any other options in France and North Africa meant their continued use until proper replacements could be produced and delivered.
