Tank Chats #112 | Churchill Mk I and II | The Tank Museum



Tank Museum Historian David Fletcher discusses the British Second World War Churchill Mark I, the very first Churchill, as well as its successor, the Mark II. This chat also covers the development of the A20 prototype and how this became the production Mark I variant. The Churchill displayed is actually a Mark II made to look like a Mark I, and is the oldest surviving Churchill in the UK.

  1. One of the other good things about the Churchill was that it had very low gearing, which meant it could climb hills that were generally thought too steep for any tank. This came in very useful in the fighting in Italy.

  2. As always a very interesting video also because I know very little about the Churchill and it's variants! I only know that it was a very good hill climber but had an
    Bedford 12-cylinder, horizontally opposed, L-head petrol engine that was rather underpowered with only 350 hp….

  3. Tell you what these Tank Museum vids are a success and I wish them all the best. Much more engaging than many documentaries thanks to the excellent presentation and interesting dialogue. im a fan!

  4. People like Mr. Fletcher should teach history in school. It's really a lot more interesting if the person teaching something is interested in the subject himself.
