Well, nice vid, but we would prefer to drive them on live server with British decals, then just watch them :). When we will get 0.8.1? Guys, I am waiting for them almost 18 months :).

That would be very nice. There is also huge armoured train at parola. Still, very nice video and hoping to see moar of these in future. It is always nice to learn about the tanks we drive in game. +1

What a pity the 'expert' got the calibre of the MGs wrong. They were BESA Machine Guns with a calibre of 7.92, and not 7.62. The later Gimpy, (GPMG), fitted to all British tanks from Chieftain onwards, was 7.62. The BESA was a very nice gun to work on.

Even in this video it talks about the Churchills climbing ability which I feel is lacking ingame could we see a buff on this in 8.1 Devs?

Just a quickie on the name :

There is some ambiguity regarding whom the tank is named after. It may have been named after Winston Churchill,[1] who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Minister of Defence at the time, and had been involved with the development of the tank as a weapon during the First World War. Alternatively, and fitting in with other British tank names, it may have been named after John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, an ancestor of Winston Churchill-Source WIKI

So most regard as Winston but,,,just pre-empting the question  :Smile_Default:
