>> Označování britských tanků

British War Office specifications and requirements were identified in a simple way : the letter A was given at the beginning, followed by the serial number of the specification, the next letter E indicated the sub-variant, after which the next digit or letter indicated the next variation of the variant. Some tanks - by no means all - were then given their "fighting" name.
