    Project Archer was summoned to the decision to strengthen the caliber of life

    antitank guns from 57 mm to 76.2 mm. But a new tool

    was too heavy for the then existing tanks. Therefore,

    was accepted workaround to base chassis setup

    Tank Valentine and create on its basis a tank destroyer. First

    Released Archer, became known as the new machine,

    appeared in March 1943, but only in October 1944, he was

    At the front. Initial fears of facing his back

    (compared with the original layout of the tank) were cannon

    groundless. Low silhouette was perfect for ambushes and gazing

    Back

    weapons allowed the car to go fast from the blow.

    By the end of the Second World War were fired 655 of these

    Machines, Archer continued to serve in the British armed forces to

    Mid 50s.
