    Yes, but I don't think it was a very big drop off...

    It was amazing how slow the British were to fully develop the 17pdr as a main gun for armour. Obviously the demand as an AA weapon was a number one priority.

    The Australian Cruiser tank (AC1) was a medium tank of sound design which entered production in 1942. Originally armed with a 2pdr, then 6pdr gun which were deemed ineffective by Australian experiences with German armour. the 17pdr gun was mounted. When built this version the AC3 was the most powerful battle tank in the armoury of the Western Allies. The entire project fell aprt due to political interference, military inefficiency and some technical problems.

    When designer A. R. Code and Colonel Watson approached the relevent British authorities with their experiences with the AC1 and AC3 developments. From the Australian success of fitting the 17pdr with a suitable recoil system the British were convinced to adapt the 17pdr to their own Shermans. The rest is history.

    I think that there were just 3 types of british tanks with that high velocity 76,2mm gun, The challenger, the Black Prince ,and the Firefly.

    The Challenger is a 1942 design in reply to the call for a tank with a gun that could take on any German tank. The chosen gun was the excellent 17pdr. Attempts to use the A27 design showed that it was too small and light to accept the new gun and so a complete tank was designed around it. This tank only saw limited service owing to the numbers of available Sherman Firefly available.

    Yes, but I don't think it was a very big drop off...

    about 15-20 % less, the energy was very similar to the german 75 mm KwK 40 of the Panzer IV G,H

    The Crusader was a very good tank. So it has my vote.

    For me the most succesful british tank is the Churchil because of his strong gun and armor.I dislike the Matilda mk 2 tank because it was very slow with a relativly weak gun.And a litlle iff toipic models of british tanks and wehicles are SF to find and build which i find rather dissapointing!

    A collection of the british tanks used in Afrika in 1940-41, relatively succesful but only agaisnt the unimpressive italian vehicles. The A9 and A10 were weakly armored with only 14-22 mm plates.

    Two images of the Infantry Valentine Mk.II tank. Only 3 man crew.




    The tank commander was also the loader of the O.Q.F 40 mm gun.




    The armor was aceptable with 40-65mm. The compact design result in a relative small weight of 17 tons. It was equipped with a 135 hp engine and it can reach 25 km/h.
