The Mark IV tank incorporated several automotive and structural improvements over earlier designs. One of the key characteristics of the British rhomboidal tanks was the primary armament being carried in external sponsons on both sides of the tank.

In previous marks, these sponsons were fixed and had to be removed to transport the vehicle by rail. Given that each sponson weighed over a ton, removal and reattachment were arduous tasks. The Mark IV’s sponsons were, however, retractable saving a great deal of time.
