Valentine Mk X
Date Added: Saturday, 24th June, 2006
Availability: In Stock
The main drawback with the Valentine was the small turret, where the commander also had to act as the gun loader. The Mks III and IV had the turret enlarged to accomodate a loader. They were both up-gunned with thw 6 pdr. to become the Mks VIII and IX respectively, but the larger gun meant that the turret crew was again reduced to two - and the co-axial Besa mg was deleted.
The Mk X entered production early in 1943. It was fitted with the longer (L52) 6 pdr. Mk V and had the co-axial Besa mg restored. It was also fitted with an uprated (165 bhp) GMC diesel engine.
