Nice looking kit. I thought it looked a bit complex at first but it went together really well.

Description

Churchill Infantry Tank

The Churchill, undoubtedly one of the most successful and famous British tanks of the Second World War, is arriving to bolster your army very soon and here is your chance to grab 3 of the beasts early so you can represent no less than 7 variants on your battlefield and keep the enemy guessing!

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… and the Churchill was a prime example of the latter – one of the heaviest Allied tanks of the war, it featured thicker frontal armour than that even of the Tiger!

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 was the basis 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!

In this new plastic kit from Warlord and Italeri you'll get 7 turret variations (yes – we said 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!)
