The Kangaroo was a Canadian armoured personnel carrier (APC) based on a converted tank chassis. The majority of vehicles converted were Canadian Ram tanks or Shermans. The armoured Kangaroo gave infantry more protection than the standard Commonwealth Bren Carrier and thus proved more suitable for infantry units accompanying tanks into battle.
