Tetrarch is a British light tank.


The Light Tank Mk VII Tetrarch (A17) was one of the few British light tanks that saw service in World War II. Being too weak in terms of armament and armour, the British army disclosed the tank from combat in North Africa. Instead it was assigned to amphibious and airborne operations as a fire support vehicle. However, experiences after D-Day in June 1944 showed that the Tetrarch was no longer adequate against the threats it had to face. It was removed from frontline service after that.

The main armament of the Tetrarch is the QF 2-pounder gun. It is also equipped with a Besa machine gun on the coaxial mount.

It appears in 4205-Operation Ironclad, 4406-Pegasus Bridge, Operation Market Garden, as well as co-op version of 4312-Commandos.
