  • The Crusader tank is a tank used during the events of Call of Duty 2 in the North African theater.
  • Relatively inexpensive and easy to obtain, the Crusader mounts a 120mm cannon, which is effective against tanks and other vehicles. The Crusader comes from a "scaling down" project of the known M1 Abrams series, culminating in two competing prototypes, the Crusader and the more advanced Paladin. Both prototypes share advancement such as automation to the point where a single crew member can operate the unit almost immediately, and weight reduction (credited from crew reduction effort) which enable the currently operating Chinook to (theoretically) carry two of these tanks.
  • The Tank, Cruiser, Mk VI or A15 Crusader was one of the primary British cruiser tanks during the early part of the Second World War. Over 5,000 tanks were manufactured and they made important contributions to the British victories during the North African Campaign. The Crusader tank would not see active service beyond Africa, but the chassis of the tank was modified to create anti-aircraft, fire support, observation, communication, bulldozer and recovery vehicle variants.

  • The Crusader tank is a tank used during the events of Call of Duty 2 in the North African theater.
  • Relatively inexpensive and easy to obtain, the Crusader mounts a 120mm cannon, which is effective against tanks and other vehicles. The Crusader comes from a "scaling down" project of the known M1 Abrams series, culminating in two competing prototypes, the Crusader and the more advanced Paladin. Both prototypes share advancement such as automation to the point where a single crew member can operate the unit almost immediately, and weight reduction (credited from crew reduction effort) which enable the currently operating Chinook to (theoretically) carry two of these tanks. The Crusader's chief advantage over foreign competitors is its high tech armor protection that can be further upgraded as desired, not to mention 120mm cannon which offers a punch equal to the Battlemaster Tank (without uranium shells). Like most US vehicles, drones can be assigned to serve a particular vehicle.
  • The Tank, Cruiser, Mk VI or A15 Crusader was one of the primary British cruiser tanks during the early part of the Second World War. Over 5,000 tanks were manufactured and they made important contributions to the British victories during the North African Campaign. The Crusader tank would not see active service beyond Africa, but the chassis of the tank was modified to create anti-aircraft, fire support, observation, communication, bulldozer and recovery vehicle variants. The first variation 'Crusader I' tank entered service in 1941 and though manoeuvrable, it was relatively lightly armoured and was under-armed. Improved armour thickness to 49mm marked out the "Crusader II' variant. The main armament for the Crusader Mark I and II's was an Ordnance QF 2 pounder (40mm) main gun, but the 'Crusader III' was fitted with an Ordnance QF 6 pounder (57mm) main gun. This variant was more than a match for the mid-generation German Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks that it faced in combat. As part of the 1st Armoured Brigade, the Crusader was to prove vital during the Battle of El Alamein, at Tobruk and in Tunisia. Retained in service because of delays with its replacement, by late 1942 the lack of armament upgrade plus reliability problems due to the harsh desert conditions and the appearance of Tiger I heavy tanks among the German Afrika Korps saw the Crusader replaced by US-supplied M3 Grant and then by the Sherman medium tanks.
