Large, and smaller, tanks;
The "Pavise" Mark III, which entered production in 1919. A very
large tank, following on the Pavise Mark I of 1916 and Mark II of 1918, it was the first vehicle to use the Hoffmeyer quasi six-stroke diesel from the start, replacing the naptha-fired steam of the Mark I, and the petrol aviation engine of the Mark II, and was best known for the truly impressive cloud of smoke in its' wake. Too tall, barely coordinated internally, and with poor arcs of fire from its' towering height, it saw desultory combat during the draw-downs at the end of the Great War. 1 x 3-pdr, 5 x 7mm Vickers MG, 1 x 95mm mountain howitzer.
The standard cruiser tank at the start of the Great Pacific War - a Christie-suspension 'cruiser' with armor of up to 50mm, it was one of the Hoffmeyer conglomerate's first big orders, beating out Vickers for the contract during trials in 1938. Fitted with a long 5cm anti-tank gun and a coaxial machine gun, this fast tank remained in service into early 1942, and in second-line roles thereafter. The second model, introduced in 1939, removed the wheel-running capability - other simplification for mass production was performed at the same time.
