The British Medium Mk.III tank

When the British started to modernize their armoured forces, the built a prototype medium tank, the Mk.III, in small numbers. The Mk.III had one 3pdr gun and 3 machine guns. One Mk.III was modified as a command tank, and the famous Brigadier P.C.S Hobart used it as his command vehicle in Salisbury plain exercises in 1934. The rest of the 1st Tank Brigade were Medium Mk.II's in all their variants (such as the Mk.II*). Carden-Lloyd carriers filled in for light tanks, as they had not been built in any numbers at that date.
