Churchill Mk VII tank.....
The early war years exposed the inferiority of British tanks
compared to their German counterparts. Of course, much of the
success of the German war machine was due to the adoption of the
new "Blitzkrieg" tactics whereby fast moving massed armour was
used in combination with air attack. True to the old adage that
"Generals always plan to fight the last war" the Allies
distributed their tanks in penny packets accompanying slow
The Churchill was introduced to counter German tank superiority.
However, shortage of materials, suitable engines and larger
calibre anti-tank guns rendered the early marks a shadow of what
the vehicle was destined to become. Even the designation of
"Infantry Tank" spoke volumes of the British military's failure
to grasp the significance of mobility.
The first Churchill's were equipped with relatively puny 2-pdr
guns, but soon received 6-pdr guns in a new turret under the
designation Churchill III. The 6-pdr was in fact a very good
anti-tank gun with a muzzle velocity in excess of the later
75mm. Tiger 131 was in fact disabled in Tunisia by a Churchill
carrying the 6-pdr. The lack of an effective high explosive
round for the 6-pdr later saw the near universal adoption of the
75mm on later marks. With a meagre 350-hp engine the Churchill
was slow at around 15mph maximum road speed.
An entirely new version of the Churchill with 150mm of frontal
armour was designed by Vauxhall Motors and designated the Mk
VII. The tank carried the 75mm gun. The extra weight of the Mk
VII reduced speed to around 12 mph. Although slow the Churchill
was a good cross country performer. It proved to be an
exceptional tank when operating in mountainous areas.
Reliable, with heavy armour and a good gun, the Churchill VII
was one of the most important British tanks of WWII with 5,640
built. Over 800 Crocodiles saw service in WWII and Korea.
The Churchill VII was used as the basis for the development of
the ultimate flamethrower tank. This was named the "Crocodile".
All production Mk VII's had a rectangular hatch in the hull
floor for the mounting of the flame equipment so that they could
be readily converted from gun tanks to Crocodiles.
Crocodiles were used in North Western Europe and in Italy. A
Crocodile is easily identified as the fuel for the flamethrower
was contained in an armoured trailer towed behind the tank. In
Crocodile form the Churchill retained its 75mm gun. The flame
projector replaced the hull machine gun.
