Aperçu du document


MkIV was developed from the MkI/II/III series, with totally
redesigned male and female sponsons. The sponsons we
re
smaller, did not hang up in heavy going and the sponsons cou
ld
be retracted inside the hull for rail transportation. The male
weapon was changed to a shorter 6 pdr quick-firing gun so it
didn't get hung up in ditches or ram the muzzle into the dirt. The
wheeled tail was dispensed with as unnecessary. The flushmounted circular top hatch was changed to a raised angular
oblong one. The exhaust now had a muffler and an exhaust pipe.
Rails were added to the tops of some MkIV's to carry an
unditching beam; earlier unditching experiments included an
individual torpedo spud spar attached to each track. The fuel tank
was moved from the inside of the fighting compartment to a safer
location at the rear of the hull.
The first encounter between British and German tanks revealed
the vulnerability of the female tanks facing gun-armed tanks. The
result was the "hermaphrodite" or mixed-sex tank. One or the
other female sponson was switched with a male sponson from
another tank, producing two tanks that each had one male and
one female sponson. Evidence is a bit sketchy, especially since
photos usually show only one side of a particular vehicle.
The MkIV was deployed in companies of 12 vehicles, usually 8
females and 4 males. Three companies made a battalion. There
were initially 6 battalions, lettered A through F. Individual tank
names, when applied, started with the battalion letter and vehicles
in a battalion were numbered consecutively from the first company
through the last company. More battalions were raised later, and
all were numbered 1st through 12th, but the naming pattern was
retained even for battalions that had never had a letter title. Late in
the war, battalions were organized into 4 brigades of 3 battalions
each.
There were 420 Male MkIV's and 595 Female MkIV's built, making
it one of the most significant tank in terms of numbers use
d.
B.28 "Black Prince" was a MkIV male in "B" Battalion.
Captured at Cambrai. Final fate is unknown.
