British Churchill Mk VII Tank
© Graham K Cook
The Churchill was designed before the war and early, unreliable versions were rushed into service, proving disastrous. Between 1942 and 46 however they were improved and were used as heavy infantry support tanks in North Africa and Italy, then later in the Northern Europe campaigns. This example from 1944 was armed with the better 75mm gun, rather than the earlier versions sporting a 2 or a 6 pounder gun.
