Bronco Models adds another to its cruiser tank series, this time releasing a kit depicting the A9.
Developed in 1934, Tank Cruiser MK. I, code A9, was the first ever built British cruiser tank. The A9 is designed not only to perform reconnaissance and patrol tasks but also capable of making forays deep into enemy territory. The A9 played a very important role in British tank technical development; such as it was the first British tank that employed periscopes and hydraulic turret traverse system. It was also the first British tank with a hull shape that can provide ballistic protection from anti-tank mines as well as perform deep wading capabilities.

Bronco Models’ Cruiser Tank Mk.I / Mk.I CS (35149) provides the modeler options to build a vehicle mounting either a 2-pounder or a 3.7in gun. It includes link and length tracks and photo-etched parts, as well as a decal sheet with three marking options.

Very unusual, but this should help satisfy the Brit armor crowd.

It would be nice to get some decently posed British crewmen to go with all this stuff. We have Germans sleeping, eating, drinking, smoking, breaking wind and urinating, the few British sets seem to be sat in/on tanks or standing around.

Whilst we're about it, how about a nice Miniart or Masterbox set of British soldiers for the back of a lorry, or working radios or something for the Dorchester?

Those inter-war multi-turret tanks make me smile. So much optimism so little understanding. Cool that they finally have a kit of this AFV. Long live weird armour!

Just add an A1E1 Independant, and a MK III medium, and we'd have em all I think!
