This is a Tank Mark V from the First World War, a ‘Hermaphrodite’. In 1918-1919 a British force was sent to Russia to help Tsarist White forces fight the Bolsheviks. When the British withdrew, their tanks were left behind and in 1919 many of these were captured by the Reds, becoming the first Soviet tanks. This example would have been one of those vehicles. The Mark V was known as the ‘Ricardo’ to the Soviets, after its engine.
