    Germans captured some Whippets, two of them in running condition. They were only tested by German army, not used in battle. Of all captured tanks only British Mark IV tanks were used by them operationally. However, one Whippet was used by the Freikorps after the war.

    Hello Albert!

    That´s absolutley right!

    The two captured Whippets first came to Charleroi to get restored. One of them (A249) was send to Berlin while the other stayed in Charleroi.

    A249 was seen with Abteilung 12 near Briey in August 1918 before sending to Berlin.

    The other one, A220 was given to Abteilung 13 in September 1918. This was the tank, used bei the Freikorps unit in 1919
