The Tank Cruiser Mk VI or A15 Crusader was one of the most important cruiser tanks during the early part of the WW II. The Mark III was up-gunned with the potent 6 pounder which could destroy any of the Italian tanks it encountered but more importantly the German Mark III and IV's. Over 5,000 tanks were manufactured and they made important contributions to the British victories during the North African Campaign. The Crusader would not see active service beyond Africa, but the chassis of the tank was modified to create anti-aircraft, fire support, observation, communication, bulldozer and recovery vehicle variants.
