The Tank, Cruiser, Mk VI or A15 Crusader was one of the primary British cruiser tanks of the early part of the Second World War and perhaps the most important British tank of the North African Campaign.
The Crusader's mobility made it a favourite of British tank crews and once upgraded with the Ordnance QF 6 pounder main gun made it more than a match for the early Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks it faced in combat. Retained in service because of delays with its replacement, by late 1942 the lack of armament upgrade combined with the presence of Tiger I Tanks among the Afrika Korps and reliability problems due to the harsh desert conditions, led to the Crusader being removed from the main line of battle.
