The Light Tank Mk VI was designed by Vickers-Armstrong in the 1930s. 1,682 were produced between 1936 and 1940.

It was in service in the British Army until 1942 but saw action in the Arab-Israeli War in 1948. Several were captured and used by the German Army during the Battle of France. The Germans designated captured Mk VIs as Leichter Panzerkampfwagen Mk. IV 734(e).

The main armament was a 0.50 inch Vickers machine gun, though the Mk VIC had a 15mm Besa machine gun. They also had a .303 Vickers machine gun. They were operated by a crew of three.
