|After the success of the AEC Mark 1 Armored Car, the Associated Equipment Company developed the Basilisk Flamethrower Armored Car due to the fear of Invasion of the British Isles by the Germans. AEC used the same general design as the AEC 1, but reworked many portions of it, including the front hull. Although only one (1) prototype Basilisk was built, its redesigned hull was further modified and used on the improved AEC Mark 2 and AEC Mark 3 armored cars.
