The Crusader was a 4x2 or 6x4 tractor unit that was manufactured by Scammell using a Motor Panels supplied steel cab, available in a sleeper or day-cab forms. Offered with the option of Detroit Diesel, Cummins, Rolls Royce, or Leyland engines. The Crusader was used by the British Army as a 6x4 tow-truck (with EKA under lift equipment) and as a 6x4 tractor unit normally used for towing 35-ton plant trailers or 30-tonne tank bridge transport trailers. A recovery variant was also in use. The British Army replaced the Crusader in the late 1990s with a Seddon Atkinson tractor unit with a 40-tonne plant trailer and a specialist tank bridge transporter. Many have seen use in the heavy haulage industry due to their incredibly strong chassis. The military specification vehicles were usually equipped with 15-speed Fuller gearboxes and an 8-tonne capstan winch.
