Mark V***/Mark X.
Permalink   


There are references to this type, but I can't remember if I've ever seen an indication of what it was actually like.

Fletcher, British Tanks 1915-19, p167: "Mention might also be made of a Mark X, described as an improved Mark V in which particular attention had been paid to manoeuvrability, crew comfort, and reliability. This also apparently reached the design stage at the time of the Armistice."

and "the Mark X was a paper-only project to improve the Mark V, originally known as Mark V***. This was basically a contingency plan in case the Mark VIII project failed (if so a production of 2000 was foreseen for 1919), trying to produce a tank with as many parts of the Mark V as possible but with improved manoeuvrability and crew comfort."

Anyone got any more details?

It's mentioned in:

along with a sketch of its putative appearance.

Many thanks, Charles. I searched it but nothing came up. All is now well.
