The British A10 Cruiser Tank MKII was developed alongside the A9, with the intention of creating a heavier, infantry tank version of the same type. However during testing it was not deemed suitable for the infantry tank role and was classified instead as a “heavy cruiser”.
Mark IIs were part of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) sent to France in the early stages of World War II and were still being used later in North Africa at the defence of Tobruk in 1941, where reliability and suspension performance in the desert conditions was praised.
From early campaigns in Europe to the deserts of North Africa and the jungles of the Far East, the Armies of Great Britain covers wherever the British forces faced the Axis threat, including rules for the A10 Cruiser Tank MKII.
Armies of Great Britain allows you to field the British Army, British Airborne, Commandos, Commonwealth troops such as Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians, Polish Airborne, Gurkhas, Chindits and of course the SAS!

Written by Jake Thornton, a copy of the Bolt Action rulebook is needed to use this supplement.
This book comes from Warlord with the special release miniature of New Zealander Captain Charles Upham, VC & Bar – exquisitely sculpted by Paul Hicks. This model is only available when you buy Armies of Great Britain directly from Warlord Games.
For all his remarkable exploits on the battlefield, New Zealander Upham was a shy and modest man, embarrassed when asked about the actions he had been decorated for. “The military honours bestowed on me,” he said, “are the property of the men of my unit.”
