Another Divisional Support platoon for my British Heavy Armoured Squadron. The AEC I Armoured Car was originally developed as a private venture but was slipped into a display at Horseguards and caught the eye of Churchill. The Mark I was fitted with a Valentine turret and carried a 2 pdr anti tank gun. Later versions carried a 6 pdr and later the M3 75mm from the Sherman. The Mk I had a 3 man crew, a maximum speed of 36 mph and weighed in at 11 tonnes.
