    You´re not totally off the mark, the Matilda II has more in common with this tank than the Matilda I, but it is a tank in its own right, not a prototype.

    Looks like a cross between a Matilda and a cruiser Mk1.
    Australian?

    That turret looks British, but the hull?

    It does not appear in my reference book on British/american/Commonwealth armour, which is pretty comrehensive.

    That armoured mg in the front...
    Hmm...

    Close enough. It´s the A7E3, the final version of the A7. Its automotive parts and suspension was later incorporated into the development of the Matilda Mk.II. Well done Patrice. :)

    Odd, isn't it? It reminds me of the MGs fitted to smaller French tanks of the period, like the Hotchkiss H39 and such.

    No, but it's the specific shape of its armour that surprised me. I don't have pictures ready but this type is, AFAIK, most common on French instead of British tanks. Anyway, it's just a minor point of curiosity.

    Go look at alot of the pre-early WW2 British tanks. Almost all of them feature guns armored like that. One tank even features two hull mounted armored guns. It is not that wierd.
