The vehicle

In order to break into the fortified zones on the European continent, the Allies anticipated needing a new class of vehicles, assault tanks, which placed maximum armor protection at a higher priority than mobility. Nuffield responded with 18 separate designs (AT1 through AT18), each design larger and heavier than the last. The AT 2, the subject of this kit, was never built, but served as a stepping stone to the eventual development of the AT 16, or Tortoise, two of which were built, but the war ended before they were needed.

Don't be fooled by what looks like a turret on this vehicle. It's actually a fixed superstructure such as on a Sturmgeschutze. In the AT 2 version, it        mounted a 95mm howitzer.
