Before the start of the Second World War, British armored doctrine was in a terrible muddle.  The opinion had been divided between the proponents of the tank who saw it as the weapon of break-in, using it as an infantry support weapon, and those who saw it as the weapon of break-out, using it to restore mobility and to destroy the enemy’s forces behind the frontline.  In many ways, it was a division between those who saw the tank solely through the prism of the experience of the First World War and those who saw it a decisive weapon for the future.  Britain was also conscious of the continuing requirements for imperial policing, in which small tanks and armored cars had already proved their worth.  As a consequence, it was decided that Britain needed three different classes of tanks: Light tanks for the policing role that could also be used for reconnaissance duties in a general war; fast and lightly armored Cruiser tanks for break-out and exploitation, and heavily armored but slow Infantry tanks for the break-in.
