Details

Twenty three A12 Matilda Mk. II's saw action in the Battle for France in 1940. They proved invulnerable to enemy armour but suffered from a lack of speed and HE rounds. All were lost. In September 1940 the 7th RTR arrived in Egypt with a complement of the tanks and they operated extremely well in the conditions, A massive reinforcement of tanks in 1941 in North Africa included 135 Matildas in time for Operation Battleaxe, but suffered disastrous losses to the German 88's. 

Between 1941 and 1943, 1084 Matildas were shipped to the Soviet Union and took a minor role in the battle for Moscow. They served Soviet tankers until early 1944.
