About the A27M Cromwell - British Cruiser Tank:
The A27M “Cromwell” Cruiser Tank, named for English Civil War leader Oliver Cromwell, was the first tank put into service by the British to combine a dual-purpose gun, reliable Meteor engine, and reasonable armor in a balanced package. The Cromwell first saw action in the Battle of Normandy in June 1944. The tank equipped the armored reconnaissance regiments of the Royal Armored Corps (part of the Royal Tank Regiment), within the 7th, 11th and Guards Armored Divisions. The Cromwell IV was the most numerous variants with over 1,935 units produced. It was not uncommon for this variant to be modified into an observation post, fitting the tank with two No. 19 and two No. 38 portable radios. There are currently approx. twenty-five Cromwell's that survive in running condition.
Armament: 1x Ordnance QF 75 mm gun, 2x 7.92 mm machine guns
Range: 170 miles (270 km)
