The Real Matilda I

When seeing the term "Matilda I", many people imagine the awkward looking Infantry Tank MkI (A11). Matilda II evokes the image of the Queen of the Desert we know and love. But should it?


As you can see here, the Matilda I, Infantry Tank MkII, is armed with a 2-pdr gun and a Vickers machinegun, clearly the "senior" Matilda and not the machinegun-only A11. From this document, you can see that the Infantry Tank MkI never bore the name "Matilda".
