General Information
The Light Tank MkVI was a development of the Carden Lloyd machine gun carrier. This version was similar to the MkII but had a longer superstructure to the rear and a two man turret with an extended turret to take a radio.

The front engined Meadows 88hp engine drove the tracks under the four coil sprung Horstman suspension road wheels, past the rear idler and back over the single return roller.

The turret was angular and contained the Vickers .303 machine gun and a .5 inch Vickers machine gun.

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.
