The Australian Cruiser Tank


The book describes theĀ  tank-building industry in Australia during World War II, resulting in the development of the Australian Cruiser Tank. The project drew on expertise from various countries, particularly Britain and the United States. Although the project was cancelled in 1943, the Australian Cruiser Tank reached a high degree of success with regard to mobility, fire power and protection. The book provides evidence that the tank was considered better than those produced by our Allies. The cancellation of the project may have been due to geopolitical factors rather than to inadequacies in performance. The book also describes the role that the civilian sector played in the defence of Australia during the war.
