Everyone knows of the wonderful Medium Mark C Hornet, the realisation of every one of William Trittons ideas. It was a tank designed from the beginning to be the best. William Tritton even talked with as many tank crews he could to get their ideas of how to make a far superior tank. And as such, Tritton made the tank very habitable. Most of the problems that plagued the crew of the early tanks were addressed in it.
Everyone has seen pictures of the mighty female version. But there was also a prototype made with a front mounted 6pdr gun with limited traverse. Because it wasnt found completely satisfactory, the plan for a Male version was scrapped, and only the Females went into production.
But I think a Male Hornet would be quite awesome! I cant even really imagine what that would look like. Im a very curious guy about this stuff. Are there any pictures of this machine? Anyone ever tried to scratch build it? It seems a very interesting subject, just like all of the other prototype British tanks.
