British Whippet tank, 1918
Photograph, World War One, Western Front (1914-1918), 1918.
The Whippet was a medium tank designed to be faster and more manoeuvrable that the existing British tanks of the time. It was also the first tank with a separate turret. The Whippet first saw action in March 1918 and performed well for the remainder of the war, proving adept at exploiting any breaks in the German lines.
