A9 Cruiser Mk I
Cruiser Tank Mark 1, A9, A9E1, C.S.
The A9 design was originally designed by Vickers to be a medium tank in 1934. However, it was re-designated a Cruiser tank for service with the armoured divisions as the Cruiser Tank Mark I, A9. A total of 125 were built. The A9 Cruiser Mk I saw some action in France in 1940 and again during the early desert battles in 1940 and 1941.
SdKfz 251/2D Mortar Carrier
The Sd Kfz 251 Mittlere Schützenpanzerwagen (medium Armoured Personnel Carrier) was used as the basis for a number of specialist support vehicles required to equip the Panzergrenadiers. The first variant, the Sd Kfz 251/2C, was designed and trialled in 1941 and entered service at the beginning of 1942. The main modifications carried out were to add a reinforced base plate in the rear of the half-track to allow the 8cm schwere Granatwerfer 34 (mortar) to be fired from the vehicle and the removal of one troop seat to allow for ammunition storage. The forward MG mount was removed because the mortar fired to the front of the vehicle. A normal base plate for the mortar was carried inside the vehicle so that the weapon could be dismounted to fire if necessary.
