Storia del prototipo
The British army began to prepare for the inevitable war at the beginning of the 30s. The industry was moving to a military footing, engineers were looking for advanced solutions for military equipment. American designer D. W. Christie created a chassis of four full-size rubber-coated rollers, planted on spring shock absorbers and two drive gears that move the trucks. This invention was so successful that it gave birth to several generations of tanks. One of the first was the English "cruising" tank "Cruiser Mark III".
This light tank had a high speed, up to 50 km/h on a hard road, the ability to overcome obstacles up to 0.6 m high, and a powerful main gun - a 40 mm “QF 2 pounder” anti-tank gun. She was supplemented by a 7.7 mm “Vickers” machine gun.
Under the ventilation grilles at the rear of the "Cruiser Mark III" was a 340 hp “Nuffield Liberty” 12-cylinder aircraft engine, superior in power to all similar combat vehicles of the time. The crew consisted of a driver, gunner, loader, and commander.
With all these significant advantages, the tank had an important drawback: weak armor protection. Therefore, it was not used as an assault combat vehicle, but provided infantry cover, following more powerful tanks on the battlefield.
The British lost dozens of "Cruiser Mark III"s in the fighting in France and brought these vehicles to less hot parts of the front. The era of the American “M4 Sherman” and British medium tanks in 1942 doomed cruiser tanks to oblivion.
But in Wargaming's popular MMO World of Tanks, the "Cruiser Mark III" is glorified by players. High speed, maneuverability and a powerful gun make this Tier III tank a valuable trophy. Upgrading this model in the game helps to win battles even with strong opponents in its class.
The "Cruiser Mark III" DIY model is a collaboration between Wargaming and Metal Time Workshop. On the bottom of the model is the logo "WoT" and a bonus package from "Wargaming" is attached to each set. It contains an activation code for the game, with which you can start playing the most popular online real-time strategy tank, as well as T2 light tank + Slot +7 Days of “WoT” premium account + 500 gold. A great start for a beginner online tanker!
The "Cruiser Mark III" features the tank's recognizable design: rotating turret geometry, Christie's chassis with full-size rollers, crew observation hatches and turrets, armament, and engine bay radiators. Textures and images are applied to the surfaces by electrochemical etching, giving the model a resemblance to the original combat vehicle. All parts of the model are made of stainless steel used in the food industry, the production of consumer goods, and toys. The "Cruiser Mark III" assembly eliminates any harm to the owner. Accurate cutting allows you to assemble models without the use of additional tools, soldering, and gluing.
The DIY scale model of the "Cruiser Mark III" light tank can be used as a souvenir, interior decoration, or a valuable prize for “WoT” fans. It can also be used to create installations, models, or reconstructions of tank battles of World War II. It will take its rightful place at the stand with a collection of prefabricated models "Metal Time workshop" and the game "World of tanks". But its main purpose is technical creativity, joint modeling, and the development of handicraft skills.
