During WWII at the North African front, the Crusader tank became the main force for the British Tank Corps and often faced off against the German Pz.Kpfw. III. The Crusader Mk.III came with reinforced front armor and a new powerful 6-pounder gun to help deal with the Pz.Kpfw. III. The Crusader tanks were first put into action in the autumn of 1942 at El Alamein, Egypt. Later after the long chase and even at the extensive Tunisia front, the Crusader Mk.III tanks contributed greatly to the allied victory over the Axis forces.
