British Churchill Mk. VII Infantry Tank - "Briton", 34th Armoured Brigade, 79th Armoured Division Grande-Bretagne, France, 1944 British Churchill Mk. VII Infantry Tank - "Briton", 34th Armoured Brigade, 79th Armoured Division, Grande-Bretagne, France, 1944 (1:43 Scale)

The "Churchill" began life as a 1939 requirement that envisaged a return to trench-warfare, and was therefore slow and heavily armored like the Russian KV-1 series. That said, the final Churchill prototype was much lighter than had first been thought acceptable, although it still resembled a World War I tank in appearance.

British Matilda Mk. II Infantry Tank - Malta Tank Squadron, Royal Tank Regiment, Malta, 1942 British Matilda Mk. II Infantry Tank - Malta Tank Squadron, Royal Tank Regiment, Malta, 1942 (1:43 Scale)

The Mark I Matilda was developed in response to a 1934 requirement for a close-support infantry tank. Well armored for its day, it was, nevertheless, a small, simple tank. Despite being sturdy enough to withstand hits from most German tank guns in the early stages of WWII, it was too poorly armed to be of much use as the war progressed.

The M10 were, numerically, the most important US tank destroyer of World War II. In its combat debut in the North African campaign, the M10 was successful as its M7 3-inch gun could penetrate most German tanks then in service at long range.

In 1941, the British were searching for a suitable armored vehicle to mount the standard British 25-pounder gun. The Canadians were producing the Ram tank, soon to be replaced by American M3s, and these were altered to accommodate the 25-pounder, becoming known as the Sexton.
