Default AEC Mk III, icon 616

As with the Mk II, the armour factors for the turret are wrong as this version shared the new lighter turret used on the Mk II.

Suggested commentary: The last 200 AECs were fitted with the British 75mm gun to replace the 6-pdr and turret ventilation was improved. A few were used in N.W. Europe in the (4) support troops of armoured car regiments which received two each. A with previous versions, the Mk III "had great potential for blocking the roadway" (Macksey and Batchelor, Tank, p. 136) and units coming from Italy preferred to use their 75mm half-tracks instead as they had greater mobility. Gordon-Hall makes no mention of Mk IIIs being used in the Mediterranean theatre so use should be limited to N.W. Europe.
