Australia bought a handful of Mediums pre war to build an armoured cadre, a thought is had the earlier plans actually progressed to motorise and mechanise the Australian Amy there could have been a licence production deal and evolved versions could have been used operationally in the panic of 1941/2.

I now have a new favourite line from a Google-translated page; "The rubber bum around the cannon was already more beautiful and wrinkled." ;D
