AVBCW/BoB: Hornet Tanks


The (British) Medium Mark C tank was developed during WW1 after the success of the Medium Mark A Whippet, and was planned to enter service in 1919. Obviously fate intervened, and the WW1 ended earlier and they were never fielded.

As usual both ‘male’ and ‘female’ tanks were developed, the ‘male’ tanks having a proper gun, the ‘female’ only having (5) HMGs.

Both models by Copplestone Castings. I’ve toned down the weathering this time. Their only service was in Glasgow – they were kept out of the RCW and IWI.

The last one was melted down in 1940.

Conceivably, if either the RCW, IWI had gone differently they would have been deployed, and for AVBCW, they’d have been hauled out of storage and used as well.

As you can see here, it could get a fast shift on, and was adept at crossing trenchs/difficult ground and so on. Towards the end of the video, you can see them allegedly deployed in Glasgow.
