Cromwell Mk.IV Cruiser tank, which served alongside the Churchill infantry tank after the Normandy landing operation in June, 1944. The distinctive riveted armor and turret has been precisely reproduced. The form of the large road wheels, which allowed the Cromwell to move quickly on the battlefield, has also been accurately reproduced. Parts are included to depict features which were unique to Normandy: "Normandy cowl" ducts which prevented the exhaust gases from entering the tank and "Hedgerow Cutters" which were attached to the front of the tank to allow it to move through the thick brushes. Five kinds of decals and one tank crewman figure included.
