Tankchats #6 Vickers Light MKVI B

The Tank Museum has released another video in their Tankchats series featuring David Fletcher.  This episode looks at the Vickers Light Tank MKVI B.

Being, in terms of numbers, the most significant British tank at the outbreak of war, the Mark VIB saw service with the British Expeditionary Force in France, the Eighth Army in North Africa and in various subsidiary theatres. As a reconnaissance vehicle it was satisfactory, as a fighting tank quite useless since armour protection was minimal and the armament ineffective against enemy tanks.
