     Welcome to The Two Tankers and a Cat Podcast Episode #19!  The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a Tankette as simply "a small military tank".  In this episode we talk about the many different tankettes that were manufactured throughout the World by many different countries.  Tankettes started with the British designing the Carden-Loyd tankette which became very popular between World War I and World War II.  Did you know that Japan had a tankette that was designed to be operated on railroad tracks and also use its regular tracks on land!  Make sure you listen to this entire episode, and you will hear how big of a pain our mascot, Lightning the cat, can be sometimes :)  Until next time, Happy Tanking and have a great week!
