The A22 prototype was built by Vauxhall Motors in the fall of 1940. The vehicle first entered mass production in the summer of 1941. Early modifications had no track fenders, a different fan, and a 3-inch howitzer in the hull. A total of 300 Churchill I tanks were manufactured.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Great gun
  • good DPM


Cons:


  • The 177mm armor is only found in a small portion of the hull
  • Very slow
  • Large target
  • All around armor is very weak
  • Absolutely pathetic stock grind with a 2 pdr hun that has difficulties penetrating equal tier medium and some light tanks!


Performance

The Churchill I has a large pool of hit points, tied with the premium Churchill III for the most hit points in its tier. The gun is not bad either, and it can easily pick out slow heavies and crush them. However, the Churchill's side and back armor only changes a bit from the Matilda, which is useless in Tier 5 & 6 battles. Also, it is even slower than the Matilda, usually only going up to 20 kph, which is tremendously slow even by heavy standards. As with the Matilda and proceeding vehicles, fast tanks can easily outmaneuver and destroy the Churchill. Once a Churchill starts going somewhere, it is feverishly difficult to go another way, so choose wisely! Overall, the Churchill is for those who have tired of the same old heavies and those that excel with slow vehicles
