Mark IV Tank fitted with Tadpole Tail. The Tadpole Tail was the elongation of rear horns to increase trench-crossing power. The platform increased the rigidity of the horns and on it is a 6-inch trench mortar, which could be freed from it. Tadpole Tails were not satisfactory and did not go beyond the experimental stage.
