As a result, when the Egyptian Army mobilised against Israel it did so with whatever tanks it had available: some Matildas and Valentines, a few Shermans and of course a quantity of Light Tanks Mark VI. At first they had to deal only with Jewish resistance groups armed with nothing better than improvised armoured lorries, against which even the Light Tank Mark VI had some potential, but with the creation of the state of Israel in May 1948, and the gradually increasing strength of the Israeli Defence Force with an equally heterogeneous collection of armoured vehicles, the Egyptian Light Tank Mark VI was really challenged.

The armoured superstructure housed three members of the crew, behind the driver. The gun was an old one, more commonly seen on a two-wheeled carriage. so a German officer stationed in France, Alfred Becker, initiated a comprehensive rework programme for local use. He came up with quite an effective AFV design with a built-up, open-topped superstructure mounting a French 105mm gun that could be operated by a crew of four. It went into such details as a pivoting earth anchor at the rear to provide stability when firing.
