    Plastic kit from BRONCO, for the asembly of a British tank of WW II Infantry Tank Mk. III “Valentine” Mk. IX, on 1/35 scale. Includes sprues with plastic parts, clear parts, assembly instructions, P.E. parts and decals.

    The "Valentine" infantry tank designed and manufactured by Vickers is a cheap alternative to the A12 infantry tank Mk.II type "Matilda". Its design concept is based on the A10E3 infantry tank, but the hull and turret have been improved. Since Vickers is a private joint venture, there is no "A" in front of its title serial number. The design of this tank was submitted to the War Office on February 14, 1940, on St. "Valentine's" Day. The "Valentine" Mk.IX was replaced by a 6-pounder gun on the earlier-produced "Valentine" Mk.V Kichu. It was put into service in the summer of 1942. During 1942-45, it served in the British army in the Tunisian battlefield in North Africa and supplied the Soviet Red Army. For the "Valentine" Mk.IX tank weighing only 17 tons, the body armor is increased to 65 mm thick so that the car is well protected. It can reach a road speed of 24 kilometers. Although it is not fast, its agile and reliable performance can make up for its lack of speed, so it is loved by its drivers.
