1/35 Crusader Mk III British Cruiser Mk VI Tank Battle of El Alamein
1/35 Crusader Mk III British Cruiser Mk VI Tank Battle of El Alamein.
The Crusader was prototyped as a cruiser tank in 1939, and about 5,300 of it were produced; it became the basis for the flow of British tanks to follow, such as the Cromwell, Comet, Centurion and Chieftain. During the war, the British Army used two types of tanks: cruiser tanks and infantry tanks. Cruiser tanks were faster and better armed than infantry tanks and were tasked with anti-tank combat, but in Africa they struggled against the German Panzer III and Panzer IV. The first Crusader team fought on the front lines in the battle near Fort Capzo in June 1941, until the end of the North African campaign in Tunisia.
