The vehicle was developed on the basis of the Churchill tank. The cabin with the 3-inch gun was placed in the front. Initially, 100 vehicles were ordered. Later, the order was reduced to 24 vehicles. Eventually, a total of 50 vehicles were manufactured from 1941 through 1942. However, they never saw action.

Performance

The Churchill Gun Carrier is a true sniper as it lacks proper mobility and defensive traits that alternate the AT 8 sports however has higher alpha and penetration along with overall good ROF of 8.7 which can be used to keep enemies suppressed and allow your team to push foward, as it has weak armor and is reliant on spotting if this tank is going to be played as a sniper. This tank can play toward the front lines in city enviroments if your team lacks heavies since the tank lacks over all frontal armor but can easily sidescrape with the 63mm plates on the side. This tank is often viewed as a "bad" tank but it is not a tank that should be at all on the frontlines unless your team is short on heavies this way the trollish side armor can bounce shots through sidescraping BUT if at all possible minimize your contact with the enemy this tank is intended as a sniper. The Camouflage Net, Gun Rammer, and the Binoculars are the best equipment you can use in order to snipe on this tank. Should you prefer second line support replace Binocs with Coated Optics as you will be moving yet still receiving a slight view range boost which can increase reaction time to make up for poor mobility and use Improved Vents instead of the Camo Net for better overall performance at close range.
