Predator mk4 is the current version
the FW version is mkiVc if i recall correctly

according to Imperial Armour, there are 12 different marks known

After, i tried to dig the original box of the current predator, if i remember correctly the mark was mentioned on the box. it is possible that the current one is Mk3 and only the FW one is Mk4. As for the Epic version there's not so much a difference in design between the first edition and second edition.

As general note, when GW puts a mk number on a release they mix Epic and 40k releases together. it works for the Dreadnought (current plastic is mk5), the land raider (current plastic is mk3), the vindicator (current plastic is mk4) so far

weird, the mark 2 looks almost exactly like the mark 1. and yes the newest predator is a mark 4, while forgeworld have the mark 4C and the mark 5
