Crusader? Never heard of'em:
Which country's was that?
I have a dad who fought in the Pacific, and a horde of uncles who fought with the Commonwealth in Europe, so when it comes to the ETO I am really into the Commonwealth stuff. (Even one of my 'merican uncles was attached to a British unit).
Anyway, some people will tell you outrageous lies about the Crusader, like it was mechanically unreliable, undergunned and its armor was paper-thin. They will concede its speed, especially since crews often modified it by removing the governor from the engine enabling it to hit speeds approaching 40 mph.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
