The Archer was another of the many designs put on the drawing board as British forces struggled to deal with German armour. The size of the 17 pdr gun caused difficulties for designers as it would not fit inside most existing designs and as a towed gun it was slow to relocate and useless on attack.

The Valentine tank, which was still in production at the time despite its obsolescence, was chosen as a suitable platform to mount the gun, not in a turret but in an open-topped armoured casemate, similar to German tank-hunters like the Hornisse.
