Designed by Vickers, the A10 was developed as a more heavily armoured version of the A9 to enable it to work with infantry. The armour basis was increased from 14mm to 30mm.
The auxiliary machine gun turrets were discarded in favour of a single mg. mounted in the hull alongside the driver and a co-axil mg. in the turret. Both of these were BESAs - used for the first time in a British tank. 175 had been built by the time production ceased in September 1940.
A10's fought alongside A9's in France in 1940 and Libya in 1940-41.
