Interesting tanks in video
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I'm thinking they are crusaders. based on turret shape and the soldier with the beret. I wish the suspension was visible

Something just doesn't 'feel' right about the angles and details - could they be wooden mock up Crusaders used to try to disguise the location of the US forces?

Just a thought

Hi Guys

I was thinking more along the lines of a Matilda looking at the hull shape, with a wooden mock up shell. Did they not have a round fuel drum attached at the rear, you can see one in the video.

As regards the turret, it looks like it has benn made to resemble a Cruiser Tank Mark VI (A15 Mark III, Crusader).

Regards

Richard

I'd say Crusaders with sand shields and rear fuel drum:

Any special significance to the colors (including the stars on the trucks)?

Early in the North African Campaign (early for the US, that is, i.e., Nov.-Dec. 1943 & the first several months of 1943) the standard American markings such as the stars and turret stripes were often painted in a yellow drab, instead of white. This yellow drab gave way to white marking later in Tunisia, and into Sicily & Italy. Why yellow? Who knows?

The yellow painted turret top on the Sherman is similar to the white turret top seen on the M4A1 Sherman (page 35) in Steve Zaloga's US Tank Battles in North Africa and Italy 1943-45. The artwork in the book depicts a tank of the US 2nd Armored Division, circa 1943 in Oran, Algeria.

My vote for the other entrained [British] tanks is Crusader III . . . the British 6th Armoured Division used them in Tunisia, generally painted overall dark green. The turret hatch is specific to the Mk III version mounting the 6 pdr. gun.
