General Information
The Carrier AEC 6pdr Gun Mk I was designed in 1941, manufactured by Associated Equipment Company(AEC) based on the existing 4 x 4 drive Matador Artillery tractor and was in use from 1942 to 1945.

The vehicle was powered by Associated Equipment Company(AEC) 'A173 6-cyl' diesel powerplant producing 95 HP which could drive the vehicle on roads at up to 19 mph with a range of about 174 miles before refuelling. Its cross country performance was good providing a max speed of about 6 mph and a range of about 78 miles.

Its main armament consisted of an Ordnance Q.F. 6pdr 7cwt MKII MKIV which could penetrate 101 mm of flat plate at 200 metres

The gun was enclosed by an armoured shield which was mounted on the flat bed towards the rear of the chassis. The conventional cab was replaced with an armoured box that covered the engine and the driver's position.

History
The 6pdr Mk II—differed from the pre-production Mk I in having a shorter L/43 barrel, because of shortage of suitable lathes. The subsequent Mk IV was fitted with an L/50 barrel, with muzzle brake.

Hit Probability(%) 98 98 98 98 81 48 25 8

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.
