British Heavy Tank Mk V Female - The British Mk. V heavy tank (female) was an upgrade version of the Mk. IV tank. It kept the unique rhomboid shape of Mark series tanks and it's also the last mass production version. This vehicle was 8.05m long, 3.2m wide and 28t heavy. Thanks to the epicyclical gearbox, only one driver was needed to drive the new tank. The tank was powered by a 150 hp Ricardo 6 cylinder in line petrol engine and could drive continuously for 10 hours. The Mk. V tank (female) was fitted with six Hotchkiss Mk. I machine guns. The female tanks were used to cooperate with Mk V male tanks to supress and kill enemy infantry. Mk V tanks were first used in the Battle of Hamel in 1918, when they contributed to a successful assault by Australian units on the German lines.

THE KIT:

  • Length: 243mm Width: 94mm
  • Realistically replicates the tank's riveted rhomboid hull.
  • Two kinds of trench crossing devices are included;
  • cement free snap fit workable tracks are easy to assemble;
  • sponsors of the Mk. V female tank are precisely represented, and they can be built in the combat or transport option.
