Cruiser Mk III is a British tank.

DescriptionEdit

The Cruiser Mk III (A13 Mk I) was another development of the British cruiser tank programme. It was the first to use the Christie suspension system, which gave the Cruiser MK III higher speeds and better cross-country performance compared with its predecessors. Its main armament is the QF 2-pounder gun. It is also equipped with a Besa machine gun on the coaxial mount. The tank was deployed by the British Army in France, Greece and North Africa during the early war period.

Together with other tanks from the cruiser tank development like the Cruiser Mk II and Cruiser Mk IV, the Cruiser Mk III appears in maps set in France and in the North African theatre up to 1942, specifically 4005-Battle of Arras and Tobruk. The tank has relatively weak armour, therefore it should use its mobility to its advantage in armoured engagement.
