I’m this short video a British MkIV heavy tank ploughs through a series of wooden buildings during a 1917 demonstration.
The MkIV was a ‘female’, machine gun-armed, tank that weighed in at around 27 tons. Designed to support infantry, it had a top speed of just 4mph.
In this footage the tank does not have its guns mounted as it runs through a succession of wooden framed builds, as British and American officers and men look on.
