Black Prince
1400000
Developed from 1943 through 1945 on the basis of the Churchill tank. It featured a wider and elongated hull to carry the upgraded turret with a 17-pounder gun. A total of six Black Prince prototypes were produced from 1944 through 1945. A few vehicles underwent trials but never saw action.

One of the slightly less popular Tier 7 tanks. This is due to its sluggish speed and lack of agility. Its gun selection is also pretty mediocre for its tier, the top 17-pounder gun having very low alpha damage compared to other tanks. This tank takes a bit more patience to drive, as the stock grind is brutal.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Deep health pool, on par with the Tiger.
  • Extremely thick hull armor, the front is practically impenetrable to Tier 7 and 8 tanks.
  • Very high accuracy and firing speed on all guns.


Cons:


  • Very slow, especially when stock.
  • Guns have very low alpha damage.
  • Easy to flank, side armor is much weaker.


Performance

This tank preforms much like the past heavies in its line. It is slow, well armored from the front, and not very agile. This tank is very good at holding narrow choke-points where it can not be flanked. The damage it can do actually adds up, so long as the user keeps firing, hitting, and doing damage at a constant rate. It is best to pick a direction and stick with it, as this tank is too slow to turn back and go back if the action turns elsewhere.
