“The British Mark V tank was an upgraded version of the Mark IV tank, deployed in 1918 and used in action in the closing months of World War I, in the Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War on the White Russian side, and by the Red Army.” [1]

Yes, I have few of these family of tanks already – see here and here. But, apart from their historical significance, I find them good subjects for extensive weathering. Besides, the Mk V looks significantly different from the Mk IV. Having said that, this will be my last one of these for a while!
