The Crusader tank, also known as Mk VI or A15 Crusader was among one of the primary tanks used by the British army during World War II. During the North African Campaigns fought in the deserts of Libya and Egypt, in Tunisia, and Morocco, the Crusader tanks were instrumental in the victories of the British army. The introduction of the Crusader tank marked the beginning of a new turn in armored warfare for the British, having finally produced a lighter and swifter cruiser tank on a tight budget. The first variant of the Crusader was designed in late 1939 by Lord Nuffield and manufactured in 1940 by Nuffield Mechanization Ltd. The Crusader’s design had come shortly after the design of the Covenanter tank and was seen as an improved version of the Covenanter.
