The Churchill, referred to officially as the Tank, Infantry, Mk IV (A22), was named after the British prime minister at the time of its design in WWII. The tank was heavily armored and it featured a long chassis with long track runs that enabled it to cross difficult terrain. The first Churchills were hastily churning off Vauxhall production lines in June 1941, within a year of the tank’s design in the aftermath of the humiliating Allied defeat in Europe. Various improvements occurred, with the Churchill Mk IV variant featuring a cast turret instead of the all-welded turret found on the visually similar Mk III. Its main armament was a QF 6 pounder gun. Weighing in at approximately 40 tonnes, the Churchill had a particularly slow top speed. The Mk IV was the most numerically common model of the Churchill, with 1,622 tanks produced.

Dragon Armor is offering a fantastic 1/72 scale rendition of the Churchill Mk IV. The accurate miniature model depicts a tank from A Squadron of the North Irish Horse serving in Tunisia in 1943. The North Irish Horse of the British Army landed in Algiers in February 1943 as part of Operation Torch. One of the famous battles was when the unit’s Churchills climbed ‘unscalable’ heights at Djebel Rhar and helped overcome Afrika Korps troops there. The model’s finished in an unusual, but typical of the period, coat of khaki brown paint. This color was known officially as Standard Camouflage Colour 2 (S.C.C. No.2) and the vehicle still carries its ship movement stencils. For modelers wishing to strengthen their British tank regiments, this North African Churchill is a must-have item!
