The Crusader is a British tier 5 light tank.

The Crusader was developed by Nuffield Mechanisations and Aero, Ltd. from 1938 through 1940. More than 5300 vehicles were mass-produced from 1941 through 1943. They were most extensively used in the North African сampaign in 1941–1942.

A much needed boost from the Covenanter, the Crusader is basically a "power-up" from its predecessor, as it now has an enhanced maneuverability, acceleration, and capable guns. With that, the Crusader is able to perform aggressive flanking and assist other tanks in dealing with enemies. Despite being a light tank, the Crusader is still ill suited to do solo scouting and has to rely on quick retreats should it encounter enemies on its own. It now faces tanks capable of destroying it with 2 shots or less. Still, another advantage is the small silhouette that allows for excellent passive scouting and the sloped turret can surprisingly bounce some shots.

The Crusader leads to the Cromwell.

Historical Info

Cruiser Mk VI or A15 Crusader was one of the primary British cruiser tanks of the early part 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 its Ordnance QF 6 pounder main gun made it more than a match for the early Panzer III andPanzer 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 overheating problems caused by the high temperatures of the desert, led to the design being phased out in favour of the new US-supplied Shermanmedium tank. The next British cruiser in combat would be the Cromwell heavy cruiser.
