With over 5000 produced between May 1940 and October 1943, the Crusader was the main cruiser tank used by British and Commonwealth forces during the North African campaign. Suffering from mechanical problems and minimal armor, the Crusader was upgraded, uparmored, and upgunned through three models, with the last (the Crusader MkIII) first appearing on the line in May 1942. CS (close-support) models of the Crusader MkI and II were also popular, each fielding a 3-inch howitzer (10d6/2y HE damage) as their primary armament. The Crusader series was replaced in 1943 by the Cromwell.
