Description

One of the most successful tanks fielded by the British in WWII, the Cromwell compared
favorably with tanks of similar weight such as the Sherman and Panzer IV. Most were armed
with the 75mm Q.F. Mk.V/VA, which was based on the 6 Pdr. but chambered to fire American
ammunition. This was a very good dual-purpose gun, able to destroy enemy anti-tank guns at
long range, or penetrate the frontal armor of a Panzer IV at normal battle ranges. However it
was less effective against German heavy tanks. The Cromwell first saw action during the
Normandy campaign, where it was at a disadvantage as it could not use its superior speed
and agility, but this changed after the fighting moved to open country. Cromwell tanks made
some spectacular advances in their pursuit of the Germans across Northern France, Belgium
and Holland. The Cromwell served again in Korea and was finally retired in the late 1950″s.
