I have been researching these tanks. The standard Mark E had the turret mountecd on the left superstructure, but the Parola tank has the turret offset to the right. Vickers had planned to manufacure a Rolls Royce engined 6-tonner called
Mark F. This had its turret mounted to the right side of the hull. Only one prototype was built and sent to Belgium. Is the Parola tank a Mark F? What is its history? Does anyone have information on the use of the 6 ton tanks in Finland?
