Italeri Military 1/35 Crusader Mk I Tank Kit
The Crusader Mk. I tank, produced in a range of versions, equipped front-line British armored divisions up until about half-way through the Second World War; it saw action on the Western Front and in Africa and Asia. Its thin armor was often inadequate in the face of enemy fire, and it was particularly vulnerable to mines and anti-tank gunfire. Firepower was often decidedly inferior compared to that of its German counterparts. Nevertheless the Crusaders, where properly coordinated in groups, often obtained good results, especially in Africa.
