Tank, Cruiser, Mk VIII, Cromwell (A27M), and the related Centaur (A27L) tank, were one of the most successful series of cruiser tanks fielded by Britain in the Second World War. The Cromwell tank, named after the English Civil War leader Oliver Cromwell, was the first tank put into service by the British to combine a dual-purpose gun, high speed from the powerful and reliable Meteor engine, and reasonable armour, in a balanced package. Its design formed the basis of the Comet tank.

BRC&W Cromwell Mk IV

Introduced in 1943, the British Cromwell Tank was designed by the Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company as a replacement for the Crusader. Not as well armed as the German Tiger or Panther, the Cromwell relied on its superior agility and speed, supplied by a powerful Meteor engine and Christie suspension. The boxy turret at the center of the Cromwell's hull held the main gun, which was complimented by two anti-infantry machine guns, one mounted in the turret and the other in the bow. More than 4,000 Cromwells were produced during WWII, including variants with 57mm guns, AA guns, 75mm guns and 95mm Howitzers.
