The Churchill Mk. VII Infantry tank is unlocked via Anvil Specialization. The Mk. VII is improved from it's predecessor featured in Company of Heroes: the Mk. IV. It has incredibly thick armor and an insane hitpoints pool, making it an ideal damage sponge. Use this tank to spot and take fire for your damage-dealing vehicles, such as Sherman Fireflies. The Churchill is basically the British counterpart to the Soviet KV-1 heavy tank, better at withstanding damage than dealing it. Effective versus all targets. Weak versus heavy tanks and tank destroyers.


This tank is excellent when facing any variety of targets, except only the heaviest Axis armor as it has excellent cost to hitpoint ratio. It's frontal armor is amazing and can deflect all but the best guns but watch out for flanks. The Churchill turns quite slowly and can easily be flanked to expose it's weak side and back armor, so it's best to have support. The Crew Self Defense ability makes this tank able to roll right up to an anti-tank gun, kill its crew, and roll back to safety for repairs. Like the Comet, it sports a short range grenade attack.

While the Churchill doesn't have the speed or overall firepower of the Comet Tank, it is a little less expensive and therefore slightly easier to replace. Of course, the Churchill requires a little less fuel than the Panther.
