Vickers E

Poland bought 38 tanks Vickers Mk.E Type A, all were twin-turret variant (Type A) as the model presented here, their serial numbers were: VAE 408 – 445. After results of acceptance trials, the Polish tanks were soon modified by adding large air intakes behind the crew compartment to improve engine cooling. It was an unique feature of the Polish tanks only. This, and some other minor improvements, were designed by Vickers on the Polish demand, and completed in Poland in 1934. The same year 22 tanks were rebuilt to the single-turret Type B standard.
