FI002 Vickers 6-ton
Vickers 6-ton (FI002)
includes one Vickers 6-ton Light tank & one Tank Commander figure.
The Vickers 6-ton tank was originally designed as a private venture by John Carden and Vivian Loyd for the famed British company Vickers Armstrong Ltd. However, the design was not adopted by the British Army; instead it was made available to foreign armed forces during the inter-war years.

Rising Sun brings you into the Soviet Union’s wars with the Japanese and Finns on its borders in 1939. Take command of the Red Army’s tank forces, infantry or cavalry forces as you throw the Japanese back into Manchuria or fight the stubborn Finns to expand the Soviet border.

The Finns ordered 32 Vickers 6-ton tanks in 1936 without any manner of armament. These tanks were to be fitted with a 37mm Bofors gun and a 7.62mm co-ax machine-gun upon delivery. They were also fitted with a rather unique interpretation of a hull machine-gun consisting of a modified version of the Suomi M/31A submachine-gun. This weapon could be fired from within the vehicle or if required removed by the crew and used in the more traditional role.
During the Winter War only the Finnish 4th Tank Company saw action with their Vickers 6-ton tanks.

Equipment and Notes
Co-ax MG, Hull SMG, Limited vision, Unreliable.
3.7mm Psv.K/36 gun
In order to pack more into small tanks, some tank designers reduced the crew to a minimum and severely
limited the number of vision devices. Thus, the tanks require the commander to operate as a somewhat vision-impaired gunner as well.
Tanks with Limited Vision add +1 to the score required to hit when shooting any weapon except an AA MG at
targets that are entirely behind a line drawn across the front of the tank’s turret before they rotate their turret to face the target.
Tanks with Limited Vision must rotate their turret to point straight ahead when they move.
Whether poorly designed, unsuitable for the conditions, or requiring more maintenance than current supply considerations will allow, these vehicles have a significant chance of breakdown when pushed too hard.
If an Unreliable vehicle attempts to move At the Double, roll a die. On a roll of 1 the vehicle becomes Bogged Down.
