General Information
The Cruiser Mk I C.S. was designed in 1937, manufactured by Vickers Armstrong based on the existing fully tracked A9 and was in use from 1938 to 1941.

The vehicle was powered by Associated Equipment Company(AEC) 'AEC Type A179' petrol powerplant producing 150 HP which could drive the vehicle on roads at up to 25 mph with a range of about 150 miles before refuelling. Its cross country performance was good providing a max speed of about 13 mph and a range of about 60 miles.

It was armed with 3 light machine guns which were Vickers Medium Machine Guns. Its main armament consisted of an Ordnance Q.F. 3.7inch CS Howitzer which could penetrate 50 mm of flat plate at 800 metres

The Mk I C.S. close support version was the Mk I but with a 3.7 inch howitzer mounted in the turret.

History
The Vickers medium machine gun was designed during World War I as a replacement for the Maxim gun from which its design was taken.

It served throughout World War I and II as a fixed point machine gun used to suppress areas and act as a defensive point.

Hit Probability(%) 98 98 57 8 2 0 0 0

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.
