"Get that Fokker!"

"Get that Fokker!"

Postby Arvaker » 07 Apr 2012

"Get that Fokker!"
Crusader III AA Mark II, AA Troop, HQ Squadron, 3 Royal Tank Regiment, 11th Armored Division, Mont Pinçon, August 1944.

Image

Hasegawa Crusader kit coupled with HR Model resin conversion set. The Mk II version was less common than the Mk III version and the Centaur AA. Finding online references has been hard. In the tank regiments the Crusaders were organized in a troop under the HQ squadron. Although I don't know for sure that the 11th Armored had the Crusader AA Mk II this is how I imagine they might have appeared.

It was a very old platitude, even then........

It's interesting how the whole look of the Crusader changes radically with the new turret...sleeker somehow.
