its a valentine .vickers armstrong , think its a flamethrower version. not a flamethrower tank just up armoured extra guns forerunner of the valitine , one in bovinton. A pre-war British development – the Mark I Cruiser tank. Armed with a two-pounder cannon and three machine guns, it was intended for fast breakthrough exploitations. However, it sacrificed armor for speed, and every time a ‘light but fast’ tank concept got tested in combat, it turned out to be a Bad Idea. It was, however, eventually developed into very successful Valentine infantry tank.
