Valentine is a British tank.

Description

The Valentine is the successor of Matilda II in the British infantry tank series. It has a small silhouette and good armour protection, but slow speed.

There are two versions of the Valentine in BattleGroup42: Mk III is armed with a 2-pounder gun and a coaxial Besa machine gun in the turret. As with many British tanks at the time, the 2-pounder gun proved to be increasingly inadequate against the newer tanks. The Mk IX is upgunned to the more powerful 6-pounder gun, but with the loss of the coaxial machine gun. An M1919 Browning machine gun is mounted on top of the turret to compensate this shortcoming.

Trivia

The Bishop is a self-propelled artillery based on the Valentine's chassis.
