Desert Rat by rOEN911 Desert Rat by rOEN911
The Tank, Cruiser, Mk VI or A15 Crusader was one of the primary British cruiser tanks of the early part Second World War and perhaps the most important British tank of the North African Campaign. The Crusader's mobility made it a favourite of British tank crews and once upgraded with the Ordnance QF 6 pounder main gun made it more than a match for the early Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks it faced in combat. Retained in service because of delays with its replacement, by late 1942 the lack of armament upgrade combined with the presence of Tiger I Tanks among the Afrika Korps and reliability problems due to the harsh desert conditions, led to the Crusader being replaced in the main line of battle by US-supplied M3 Grant and Sherman medium tanks.

Brings back memories of Call of Duty 2 during the desert armored assault. 'The current tactic for the shorter range guns of the British tanks, to charge headlong to get into firing range of the German Panzers, leaves much to be desired.'

Those guys had to be crazy to win the war.

I am Kun, member of a start up company ravenworks. We are planning to develop a turn base modern war game with a bit of manga twist. I will need to illustrate  15 types of units for each of the items such as BMT tanks, APC, infantry, attack helicopters, artillery etc. There will be a hundred of illustration needed. Can you contact me on ravenworks2014@gmail.com.

It's the details that really put your work a cut above- things like the traversed turret on the Tiger, and the suggestion that the Germans were surprised and overrun.

The main problem with Crusader was it was designed for fight in Europe, not Africa.

Very nice looking tank. Great work. Pennants blowing in the wind is a really nice touch. Love the shadowing too, especially on the rivets.

Always liked the look of the crusader it was cool, even though like all the british cruiser's during the war they

were unreliable and brew up with little effort.

Still nice pic.
