The Valentine Archer was a British tank destroyer that was developed during the Second World War. It was based on the Valentine infantry tank chassis, but fitted with a powerful 17-pounder gun that faced backwards. This design allowed the vehicle to have a low profile and a short length, as well as to quickly retreat after firing. The Valentine Archer was produced by Vickers-Armstrongs from March 1943 to May 1945, with a total of 655 units built. It saw service in north-west Europe and Italy, as well as in Egypt after the war. The Valentine Archer was classified as a self-propelled gun and operated by a crew of four: commander, gunner, loader, and driver. It had a top speed of 32 km/h on roads and 13 km/h off-road, and a range of 140 km on roads. It had a thin armour of 14-60 mm, but its main advantage was its long-range and accurate gun, which could penetrate most enemy tanks at the time.
