    no, the Christie designs would lead to the BT series, British Cruiser tanks, T-34 etc. The Vickers design would lead to designs like the Russian T-26, Polish 7TP, the Dutchman etc.

    Where was the only place during the period of WW2 (Sept of 39- May of 1945) that a British made Mk V heavy tank saw combat action? PS several Mk. V and VII's actually saw service as training vehicles or tractors behind the lines.

    Germans

    A Mark V tank can be seen in several photographs taken in Berlin in 1945 in front of the Berliner Dom (Berlin Cathedral). It has been suggested this was a museum piece that had been previously displayed at the Lustgarten and it had been used as a static pillbox to help bolster the city's defences during Nazi Germany's final days. However, there is no evidence this was the case and it is not clear what role (if any) it played in the Battle of Berlin.

    No that is not the answer I am looking for. But you have the right parties involved.

    I know there was a Mk V on static display in Smolensk which had been captured from the White Russians. It was often photographed by the Germans but I do not recall it being involved in a battle.

    But I have to assume it was one of these static displays brought to life against the Hitlerites during the defense of the Motherland during the Great Patriotic War!

    Close so very close..... I will pas it to you for your hard work. Actually upto 4 former Estonian Mk V's were used 1 in a static defense of Talinin (the other looks to have not been dismounted from its stand), up to 2 more that were running were knocked out outside Talinin and a picture of one of them exists.

    http://mailer.fsu.edu/~akirk/tanks/e...113estonia.jpg note the original MG's were replaced with Maxims.

    Maxim bullets with an iron or tungsten core are known to penetrate it's armor. Was it serving as an effective defence, or just adding psychological protection for the crew inside it?
    AT rifles or any kind of heavy MG would wreck it, as would any artillery schrapnel larger than the basic kind.

    Unknown, but it was probably the only tank over 10 tons the German 28mm and 37mm ATG's were effective against lol.

    Okay here's your question.

    How many tracks shoes were on the each side of an M113A2/M125A2? And why the were the different?
