A brief history...

MkIV male

The Mark IV was a step forward for the British Army with improvements in armour, positioning of the fuel tank, and the ability for easier transportation.

The tank had a crew of 8 and weighed 28.4 tonnes. It was the most produced British tank of WW1. 1,220 were built: 420 “Males”, 595 “Females” and 205 Tank Tenders.

First used in 1917 it remained in official British service until the end of the War.

About 40 Mark IVs were captured and employed by the Germans.] Some of these had their six pounders replaced by a German equivalent.
