Historical Reference

ПТ-САУ была создана в 1942 году на базе удлинённого шасси танка Cromwell. Одним из её несомненных преимуществ являлась мощнейшая на тот момент британская 17-фунтовая танковая пушка, что позволяло A30 поражать любой танк противника на дистанции до 1000 метров. Среди недостатков ПТ-САУ можно отметить перегруженность шасси и внушительные габариты. За период серийного производства было выпущено всего около 200 машин.
