A10 Cruiser


The design of the A10 was closely based on that of the A9.

The A10 was intended as an infantry-accompanying tank.

It therefore had more armour than its ‘Cruiser’ counterparts.

The auxiliary turrets of the A9 were removed and a single MG placed by the driver in the hull (a BESA MG replaced the Vickers).

Lower gear ratios were also required to allow for the extra armour.

The A10 saw the service over the same period as the A9 but was generally more popular with its crews due to better reliability and protection.
