Description

Although obsolete in the European theatre, the A12 Matilda II infantry tank’s heavy armor and proven weaponry were ideal against the lightly equipped Japanese forces in the Far East.

The nature of the terrain precluded the large armored formations experienced in North Africa. Instead, the Matilda-equipped Australian 4th Armored Brigade was broken up and deployed as individual troops of three tanks in direct support to the infantry.

The Australians made several field conversions to the standard A12 Matilda II, the two main additions being armored guards fitted to the front tracks and protection against the turret ring becoming a shot trap.
