A Kangaroo was a World War II Commonwealth or British armoured Infantry carrier (AIC), created by conversion of a tank chassis. Created as an expedient measure by the Canadian Army, the Kangaroos were so successful that they were soon being used by British forces as well, with the term Kangaroo becoming a catch-all term for any similar tank conversion. Their ability to manoeuvre in the field with the tanks was a major advantage over earlier designs, and led to the dedicated APC designs that were introduced by almost all armies immediately after the war.
