General Information
This vehicle was based on a Standard commercial car chassis to which armour of 11mm of steel backed by 3 inches of wooden planks was attached, making it bullet proof. The mark I had an open hull to the rear and top of the vehicle and was armed with a Bren gun.

Lord Beaverbrook who was the Minister of Aircraft Production ordered these vehicles which then became known as Beaverette

Flight Time(Secs) 0.17 0.4 1.33
Penetration(mm) 11 9 5
Hit Probability(%) 98 98 90

Hit probability is based on a static 2 x 2.4 metre panel at 0 degrees(vertical) at the range specified.

The data that has been used to create these records has come from Wikipedia, The Lone Sentry, The Bundes Archive and numerous books and websites that have provided the detailed information that has not been available anywhere else. The information we use to calculate the penetration tables, flight times and the hit probability comes from the Gun Calibre, the Shell Mass(Kg) and the muzzle velocity, plus range reductions to allow for gravity and wind resistance. This calculation originally came from a pre-war Krupp calculation which has been modified, and seems to fit the actual test results.
