The Churchill 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. The Churchill Mk IV tank was a variant that featured 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 tons, the Churchill had a particularly slow top speed. The Mk IV was the most common Churchill, with 1,622 tanks produced.
