Front view U.K. Medium Mark A Whippet

Great Britain
Mark A “Whippet”
Initial Production 1917
Combat Weight 15.7 tons

The Whippet was one of the first “Medium” tanks. It had a crew of three, a driver and three gunners who operated the three Hotchkiss .303 caliber machine guns. The Whippet had a top speed of 8 mph on the road. Seven of these tanks overran three battalions of German infantry entrenched in a village in France. This action gave rise to more interest in medium tanks. The Whippet nickname comes from the shorthaired swift-running dog bred in England.
