Tanker's Tuesday:Cruiser Tank Mark 1, A9, A9E1, C.S.






Designed by Vickers in 1936 and built for the purpose of replacing the 
aging Medium Mark 1 and 2. It was to incorporate the best features of 
the cancelled A6 project. This tank was in active service from 1938 to 
1941. The Close Support (C.S.) version mounted a 3.7" howitzer in 
place of the 2 pounder main gun. The Germans were known to have 
used a few captured Mark 1 C.S. tanks in North Africa as late as 1942.

Tanker's Tuesday: Centurion Main Battle Tank







The development of the Centurion Main Battle Tank began in 1943
when the British Army asked for a new cruiser tank equipped with
at least a 17-pounder gun. They wanted a fast tank that, even though
heavily armored, would perform well in cross-country travel.
Prototypes of the new tank, known as the A-41, were built and sent
to Germany in 1945, but the war ended before they saw combat
