Valentine tank in real life

The Tank, Infantry, Mk III, Valentine was an infantry tank produced in the United Kingdom during the Second World War. More than 8,000 of the type were produced in eleven marks, plus various specialised variants, accounting for approximately a quarter of wartime British tank production.


Battlefield VEdit

"The Valentine was an infantry tank produced by Great Britain. It had a good reputation, and was upgraded many times over the years. The Mk VIII featured a diesel engine and 6-pounder main gun."

— In-game description


The Valentine Mk VIII is a tank featured in Battlefield V, first seen in the Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer towing a Flak 38.

SingleplayerEdit

The Valentine is seen only once in the singleplayer, appearing alongside the Churchill Mk VII in the desert convoy in the opening cutscene of The Last Tiger.

MultiplayerEdit

The Valentine is the standard medium tank of the United Kingdom faction, and is the equivalent of the German Panzer IV. It is the starting tank of the Allies, being unlocked by default.

The vehicle has two seats: one for the driver who has access to a QF 2PDR gun and coaxial Besa machine gun, and a top gunner who can use an additional machine gun mounted on the roof of the turret. With its short hull and small turret, the Valentine presents a smaller target than its counterpart in the Panzer IV, and offers similar amounts of health and armor protection. Despite being capable of a high rate of fire and with little drop at range, the default armament is somewhat lacking in performance however, as the 40mm shells have a small splash radius and are weak against enemy armor. Furthermore, its lack of a hull machine gun weakens the vehicle's defensive options.

Through Specializations, the Valentine's anti-vehicle performance can be upgraded using the right-side options of Increased Ammo Capacity, Deploy AT Mines, and APCR Rounds, with the QF 6PDR replacing the main gun with a slower firing, dedicated anti-tank cannon. The left side path retains the 40mm 2PDR but aids in survivability, with Field Repair, Maintenance Drills, Track Skirts, and anti-infantry Case Rounds for the main gun. Middle tree alternatives are offered in the form of Improved Loading Mechanism, boosting the Valentine's already considerable rate of fire, and Mine Clearing Line Charge, for anti-obstacle duties.

The Valentine AA Mk I, is a fictional variant of the Valentine tank.
