A green Light Tank, with antenna and a riveted effect. Diecast except for the chain track which was identical to that of the Medium Tank.

Vickers Light Tank Mk VI

Based on the Vickers Light Tank Mk VI, this model was similar to its predecessors, with an expanded turret to accommodate a wireless comm system with a new engine that increased its top speed.

When rearmament proceeded in 1937, the Mk VI was the only tank ready for manufacturing. As a result, these tanks were the most common British tanks in the WW2, with over 1,000 available to the British army throughout its duration.
