1: Vickers-Armstrongs Limited, Elswick, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, North East England, Britain (Manufactured August 1934)
2: Panzermuseum, Thun, Bern, Switzerland (Current location)


Six examples of the Vickers 34 were bought by Switzerland in 1935. Nowadays two of them still survive, both in the SHP collection. This tank was stored in the outdoor Panzermuseum for a long time until the summer of 2009. It is currently undergoing restoration in the Swiss Army's workshops in Thun and is planned to be returned to running condition using parts from both tanks. A large number of used cartridges were found inside. (Source: M. Foti).
As part of the restoration it has been partially dismantled, with its turret, idlers and tracks removed and the covers removed from the engine and transmission compartments. Its data plate states it was built at the Vickers-Armstrongs Elswick Works in August 1934.
