Hi guys.

 

How would I spec out the Churchill in todays play climate. I shouldn't get into any real trouble with her. ie: being slow and steady with reasonable armour etc. Also whats the best first crew skill for them. Is it repairs as i feel they would get tracked a lot.

 

Also the Matilda is still amazingly strong. I thought she'd struggle with all the lights in game but I'm flying up the XP grind to tier 5.

Repairs yes.

 

Vents. GLD. Rammer.  I think I may use a toolbox rather than GLD as the aim time and reload are pretty similar anyway and getting your tracks back up as quickly as possible is important.

 

Don't rely on your armour.  Rely on your hitpoints and your ability to machine gun things down.

Because the gun fires faster than your aim time, this would be one of the few ranks were it would be worthwhile dropping rammer for GLD.

Exception is if your in the sub 100m CQC fights where you need the DPM.

I run Vents, Rammer and Optics.

Boosts View range to near Max.

Skills...

Commander - Recon, Because the the Church can run at Maximum view range.

Gunner - Snap shot, Shooting on the move from a stable Church, accuracy is enhanced with Snap Shot.

Gunner 2 - Armorer, could be repairs or Fire, but my gun was getting damaged before the New Consumables hit, so being able to fire a damaged gun was of help.

Driver - Smooth Ride, - Again firing on the move, anything that makes this better is Good.

Loader - repairs, because there's nothing for him to do until a loader skill reaches 100%, so anything will do.

 

Good luck.

Which Churchill are we talking about? The Churchill III or the Churchill I? 

 

If it's the Churchill III I use:

- GLD, Rammer, Spall Liner 

 

If it's the Churchill I it depends on the gun:

- 75mm: GLD, Rammer, Spall Liner

- 6-Pdr: Vents, Rammer, Spall Liner

Try the 6-Pdr instead of the 75mm. The extra DPM, better aim-time, and gun depression make it a decent top gun. Carry a bit of gold for those few tier VII games.

Sell it. 

 

Then grind the proper tier 5 HT, a KV1 or better still in the latest always bottom tier MM: a KV1s. Install derp gun, load HEAT. Win.


Gold Brother, glorious gold.

I disliked the KV-1's because it seemed that anything (including lower tier lights) could pen it with every shot and there were not a lot of opportunities for corner fighting.

A KV-1 angled at 45 deg is very difficult for equal or lower tier tanks to pen.

Front on, they're easy as most players aim at the drivers hatch strip.

never fight alone. as much as possible play in a platoon.

regardless of what tanks your platoon with in your Churchill, you're a support heavy tank. your armor is not to be relied upon. maintaining distance is paramount especially when (not if) you do get tracked to prevent flanking.

 

definitely mount a tool box. its only a matter of when you get detracked, not if, and the sooner you get moving the better

 

PS the Churchill I "elite" turret, thanks to some crackpot British designer, has no gun mantlet or thick plating and so you can't go hulldown in it.

I've got the top gun now but I do wonder if the quick firing gun is a better option just for raw dpm.

+ The O-I could presumably be using the derp gun in which case it doesn't even have to aim.

O-Is are different because they are [edited]tanks that require no skill.  Point big gun at enemy and do whopping damage.

I should have clarified my statement to say that KV-1's can be difficult for same or lower tier meds and lights to pen if angles well.
