British Churchill Tank

The UK Churchill Tank, was undoubtedly one of the most successful and famous British tanks of the Second World War!

The British Army adopted a doctrine centered around the use of light, fast 'Cruiser Tanks' coupled with slow, better armed and armoured 'Infantry Tanks', that would be used to smash the enemy defences with infantry support. The Churchill was a prime example of the latter! One of the heaviest Allied tanks of the war, it featured thicker frontal armour than even the Mighty German Tiger could claim!

Although it suffered from being under-armed, a defect common to most British armoured vehicles of the period, it was nevertheless loved by its crews. Its cross-country ability was unrivalled and it was less inclined to ‘brew-up’ from a direct hit than the Sherman.

It will be no surprise to you to know that it was named after the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, but you may not know that he had also been involved with the development of the tank as a weapon during the First World War.

Taking the form very reminiscent of earlier WWI tanks, the Vauxhall motors built Churchill to allow for a slew of variants from the MkI with a 2pdr gun to the MkVII 75mm guns. Other versions would see more specialist engineering equipment added including the likes of bridging equipment and minesweeping devices - and a favoured 'close support' option of the 95mm howitzer!

Box set included 7 turret variations (yes - SEVEN!) allowing you to build the following marks:

  • MkIII - with 6pdr gun
  • MkIV - Cast turret with 6 pdr gun
  • MkV - Cast turret with 95m Howitzer
  • MkVI - Cast turret and Welded turret with 75mm gun
  • NA 75
  • AVRE (Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers) with 290mm Petard Mortar (aka the flying dustbin!)

*Can also be used in games of Achtung Panzer!, the game of close-quarters tank-on-tank combat, its rules can be found in the Achtung Panzer! rulebook.

*Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
