New “Killer” Tank
With Heavy Guns
London.—Britain has a new
16-ton “killer” tank which, the
ministry of supply said yesterday,
is powerful enough to destroy any
machine It is likely to encount^.
It is armed with a Besa gi?h
and a cannon firing a 2-po-und
shell, capable of piercing any
tank “as yet met in any German
armored formation,” the ministry
said, and carries a crew of three
at a 15-mile-an-hour speed.
(In both armament and speed
the new mobile weapon would ap

to 60 or 80-ton tanks unless ex
