|Notes||When the Crusader was withdrawn as a battle tank, the decision was made to utilize the basic hull design to incorporate the standard 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft gun. The turret was removed and the gun was mounted on top, armour protection was provided by the original gun shield only. These were first used during the Normandy landings to provide cover against German air attacks. Many were taken out of service later in the campaign due to the lack of Luftwaffe attacks.|
