In-Game Description:

Developed from 1943 through 1945 on the basis of the Churchill tank. It featured a wider and elongated hull to carry the upgraded turret with a 17-pounder gun. A total of six Black Prince prototypes were produced from 1944 through 1945. A few vehicles underwent trial but never saw action.

 

 

Summary of Stats:

A premium version of a wider Churchill VII with much better gun characteristics other than DPM and better HP/ton...

 

A43 BP Proto -vs.- Churchill VII

+ Penetration

+ Alpha

+ Gun depression/ elevation

+ Turret mantlet strip

+ HP/ton

 

- DPM

- Aim time

- Turret traverse

- Slightly less HP

 

 

Sahm's Rating: 3.75 / 10

"The Churchill VII is marred by terrible gun depression/elevation, subpar penetration, slow speed, and unreliable armor. The A43 BP Proto basically solved the gun control weakness aspect of the Churchill VII but still has the unreliable armor. Also unfortunately, the A43 BP Proto doesn't have the essential strength that the Black Prince has, which is the 240mm turret front with mantlet cover. Overall, it's better than the Churchill VII. But then again, eating cardboard is better than the Churchill VII."

 

 

 

Comparison between Tier 6 UK HT's and the Black Prince at Tier 7

We are moving one step closer to the threshold of more premium tanks than tech tree tanks.

Who asked for this?  Which one of you mutha #μ@!$ asked for another UK premium heavy?   There are only 6 UK heavies in the tech tree and now 6 premiums.   

 

The FV201(a45) that nobody likes.

The Excelsior that is a greifer machine

The TOG that nobody should like

The Caernaevon AX 

The FV215b that everybody forgot about 

The Cheiftan that never should have been put in

And,now this.

Instead of making it premium, they should just replace the tech tree Churchill at that tier with this one.

It's funny because even at tier 6 the Black Prince would still be terrible, and this premium is going to be terrible too lmaooooooo

Because, unlike yet another Slowchill, such monster could pose a threat to soviet tanks ;]

Because they haven't figured out how to monetize it for maximum profit yet.

Lol you do raise a good point.


I think they have someone going to the Tank Museum archives doing more research than in the past.

Knowing WG they won't be giving it away expecting people to wallet another turd for which it will fail to sale, this is the fodder that should be given away for just playing the game.
