ENGLISH

“Cruiser Tank” was the British term for its medium-weight tanks intended to be used by Armoured Divisions. The first was known as A9 after the original War Office specification for the type, A10 was very similar but had up to 30mm armour compared to 14mm.

It was originally intended to be an Infantry Tank but instead became a “Heavy Cruiser” while the A9 became a “Light Cruiser”. When it was decided that even better-armoured tanks were needed, both were known simply as Cruisers. The naming system changed in mid-1940 after which A10 became Cruiser II. The change in armament from the Vickers machine gun to Besa was shown by the letter ‘a’ added to the designation, so they were designated A10 Mk Ia or Cruiser IIa.

 

ESPAÑOL

“Tanque Crucero” era el término británico para sus tanques de peso medio destinados a ser utilizados por las Divisiones Acorazadas. El primero se conocía como A9 por la especificación original de la Oficina de Guerra para el tipo, el A10 era muy similar pero tenía un blindaje de hasta 30 mm en lugar de 14 mm.

En un principio iba a ser un tanque de infantería, pero se convirtió en un “crucero pesado”, mientras que el A9 se convirtió en un “crucero ligero”. Cuando se decidió que se necesitaban tanques mejor blindados, ambos se denominaron simplemente Cruceros. El sistema de nomenclatura cambió a mediados de 1940, después de lo cual el A10 se convirtió en Crucero II. El cambio de armamento de la ametralladora Vickers a la Besa se mostró con la letra “a” añadida a la designación, por lo que se designaron A10 Mk Ia o Cruiser IIa.
