Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • The cheek area of the turret is significantly reduced and well sloped sideways (previously a major weak spot of Churchill III)
  • The 75 mm gun offers a significant improvement in firepower
  • The M61 APHE shot makes engaging and destroying enemies much easier than with solid shots
  • A great gun depression of -12 degrees makes fighting in mountainous terrain easy
  • Excellent armour for its BR range; can withstand multiple enemy shots (except the German long 75 mm guns)
  • Has smoke grenades to lay a smoke screen

Cons:

  • Vehicle difficult to manoeuvre in tight and narrow streets, and with a terrible and slow reverse speed (-3 km/h)
  • Slow top speed and poor mobility are inherent weaknesses, requiring extra caution in close quarters engagement.
  • No primitive gun stabiliser for the 75 mm gun, sudden stopping of the tank causes the gun to wobble

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
