Greetings!

 

I have a Churchill VII and I don't know how it can be good, because even though the 77mm gun has a good reload time that allows this tank to fire frequently, both damage and penetration are not enough against tier 7 tanks or even tier 6 tanks with sloped armor; also, the hull armor of 152mm doesn't help this tank at all, because of his front weakspots, so you must angle this tank properly to bounce some hits, but you can still get damaged in other ways.

Considering this and the fact I saw videos on YouTube and read posts in the forums about how British HT are not good (anymore), should I continue this path?

Hi mate,

 

I suffered through the Churchill grinds myself. All I can say is that the Caernarvon, tier for tier is one of the best T8 regular tech tree heavies in the game (once upgraded), and the T10 Super Conqueror is a very strong tank. Still on the T9 Conqueror grind, but I can say T8+ are well worth it. If you have any blueprints left from holiday ops, you can consider using them to skip the CHurchill VII which I found the most underwhelming of the three Churchills, or even skip past the Black Prince too and go straight to the Caernarvon.

On tiers VIII to X British Heavies are in a very very good spot.

Thanks to the blueprints and with some free xp you can go straight for the tiers VIII.

As you don't need previous tanks modules - and with the use of crew books - you don't need lower tiers.

Everyone seem to say 'Black Prince? RUN, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!' in favor of Caernavorn and Conqueror. :D

I don't know if I have enough blueprints for the Caernavorn, but if you say that the grind for the Black Prince is painful and its performance is worse than a Leichtraktor, I'll gladly skip that.

you really should skip the BP.

 

it has the worst Pen of all regualr T7 HT (171mm with AP), the lowest alpha DMG of all T7 HT. and it´s also the slowest of all T7 HT.

and the DPM is lower than the Russians with the 122 mm.

 

so there is nothing positive about the BP.
