General Information
The Daimler MkI was developed from experiences with the Dingo scout car.

It was armed with a shoulder controlled Ordnance Q.F. 2pdr gun and a besa machine gun in a Tetrarch Tank turret.

The MkI suffered from gearbox problems, but these were remedied by 1942.

The MkII had changes to the gun mounting,drives escape hatch and engine covers.

History
Used both as an Anti Tank gun and as a Tank gun the 2pdr was first used in Belgium in 1939. The majority of the British guns were captured by the Germans at Dunkirk and given their designation of 4.0 cm Pak 192(e) or 4.0 cm Pak 154(b). However the 2pdr manufacture was continued but was slowly replaced by the 6pdr from 1942.

Hit Probability(%) 98 98 98 93 60 25 6 2

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.
