A British medium tank, the Vickers Mark II was developed in the Inter-war period to replace remaining Medium Mark C's units, already outmoded by that time. Based on the Vickers Mark I, it surpassed its predecessor in several aspects: it featured an improved suspension, a better placed superstructure and Rackham clutches involving servo-based control. The modifications, however, increased the weight of the vehicle reducing its speed from 24 km/h to 21 km/h.

The Mark II was armed with a 47 mm 3-pounder gun, four machine guns in the turret and two Vickers machine guns, one on either side of the hull. A sloped rear of the turret made it possible to use the machine guns against aircraft.

Both the Mark I and Mark II served in the Royal Tank Regiment until their production was stopped in 1938. Some Mark II's equipped the Mobile Division commanded by Sir Percy Hobart in Egypt, but by the time the Italian invasion began, they were no longer in use. During the threat of German invasion in 1940, some of these tanks were reactivated for a short time.
