Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

3800

The Cruiser Mk. III is a British tier 2 light tank.

The vehicle was developed on the basis of the M1931 Christie tanks, purchased by the British Army in 1936. The vehicle was intended to be a fast, lightly-armored breakthrough tank. The modified design was deemed successful and became the basis for other cruiser tanks. A total of 65 vehicles were built. They saw combat in France and North Africa in 1940–1941.

The Cruiser Mk. III leads to the Cruiser Mk. IV.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good power/weight ratio


Cons:


  • Weak armour
  • Poor hull traverse


Performance

Stock, this tank turns poorly at high speed, similar to the USSR A-20. However, once you're going in the right direction you will reach top speed rather quickly thanks to the tanks engine power. This tanks gun is good depending on with you use the 2 pounder has greater damage and quick reloading speed than the 40mm Pom Pom.

Keep in mind that while it doesn't have much of armour, it has very good gun depression, allowing it to easily hull down in hilly terrain.


Early Research

All guns can be mounted on the tank, even while stock, so first on the list is the pom pom gun, after that you should go for suspension and engine to slightly improve your hull traverse. After that's done, you may choose to research the upgraded turret, or move up a Tier.
