The..Mk.V..while intended as a new design entered production as basically an improved..Mk.IV..with a new 150 hp, 19 litre six cylinder in-line..Ricardo..petrol engine coupled with a new..Wilson..epicyclic gear box with 4 forward 1 reverse gears. The use of this new gearbox meant the..Mk.V..only needed one driver and the crew was reduced to 8 men, 1 Commander, 1 Driver and 6 gunners.
Production began at the end of 1917 and the first tanks reached France in May of 1918 with a total of 400..Mk.Vs built, 200 Males with two..6-pounder (57-mm) 6 cwt QF guns..and four...303 in (7.7-mm) Hotchkiss Mk 1 machine guns..and 200 Females with six...303 in Hotchkiss machine guns. A few were also converted as..Hermaphrodites..(or Mark V Composite) with one male and one female sponson fitted.
