General Information
The Carden-Lloyd Mk VI was designed in 1927, manufactured by Vickers Armstrong and was in use from 1928 to 1943.

The vehicle was powered by Ford 'Model T' petrol powerplant producing 22 HP which could drive the vehicle on roads at up to 30 mph with a range of about 100 miles before refuelling. Its cross country performance was good providing a max speed of about 16 mph and a range of about 40 miles.

It was armed with 1 light machine gun , a Vickers Medium Machine Gun. The Carden Lloyd carriers were designed to provide machine gun support to infantry.

The front Ford 22hp engine drove the front drive wheel under 4 small road wheels, over the rear idler and back to the drive wheel via 2 return rollers.

The vehicle was armed with a Vickers machine gun, which could be removed and mounted on a tripod carried in the vehicle.

Penetration(mm@30°) 2
Penetration(mm@0°) 3
Hit Probability(%) 98

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.
