About the British Crusader Mk.I & II Tank In the 1930s, a British mission observed the field maneuvers of the Russian army and wereimpressed by the performance of some of their tanks, which were influenced by the designs ofAmerican Walter Christie. The British decided to develop their own fast cruiser tank for theirarmy and their efforts eventually resulted in the Crusader. When it entered operational service in1941 as part of Operation Battleaxe in North Africa, the Crusader was found to be faster than itsGerman counterparts, but had a less powerful gun, thinner armor, and was less reliable.Nevertheless, it served well as a battletank until replaced by newer designs.
