Churchill MK IV 3D model originally modeled in cinema4D. Detailed enough for close-up renders. The zip-file contains bodypaint textures and standard materials.
The undercarriage was one of the characteristic features of Churchill, on which the track, for better maneuverability, was made covering the entire hull, whose width was now equal to the full width of the tank, which significantly increased the internal space. On each side, the undercarriage consisted of eleven dual support rollers with a diameter of 254 mm, a drive wheel, and a sloth - a wide-body forced the use of rollers of small diameter. Suspension rollers - individual, spring. The axis of each roller was mounted on a balancer, with one end hinged to the bracket on the tank hull, and the other resting on the spring attached to the bracket. The first and last rollers of each side were raised from the ground and worked only when the tank overcame obstacles, and the 2nd, 9th and 10th track rollers had a shortened suspension travel and worked mainly when the tank was moving on soft ground. There were no supporting rollers, instead, the upper branch of the caterpillar slid along special guides.
Churchill used two types of tracks - from 70 tracks with a pitch of 211 mm or from 72 tracks with a pitch of 202 mm. The role of guides, on tank tracks, usually performed by their crest, was performed here by the edges of the tracks, along which support rollers rolled like on rails.
The Churchill tank was the only heavy tank that was supplied by the Allies in the USSR under the Lend-Lease program. The first 10 units arrived in mid-July 1942 (5 Churchill II and 5 Churchill III) with a convoy of PQ-17. In September, 74 tanks arrived last with a convoy of PQ-18 (19 Churchill II and 59 Churchill III). On January 27, 1943, a convoy of JW-52 arrived in Murmansk, with which the next 40 tanks arrived. The delivery was already February. Among the tanks that arrived were Churchill III and Churchill IV. The largest supply in the amount of 121 tanks was credited in March. In fact, these tanks arrived in the USSR at the end of February 1943, along with a convoy of JW-53. The last 8 tanks arrived in August 1943 through Vladivostok.
Already in the early stages of familiarization with the tank, a number of design and manufacturing defects were discovered. The defeat of the PQ-17 convoy had a strong influence on the formation of the units into which the British heavy infantry tanks were supposed to go. Until the end of September 1942, Churchill was concentrated in the 194th Training Tank Brigade. It was formed in April 1942 to train British crews. In addition to the Churchilli crews, the crews of Valentine and Matilda prepared here. Later, all who arrived at the Gorky Automobile-Armored Center "Churchill" also first passed through the 194th tank brigade. In addition to training the crews, malfunctions were also detected here.
The formation of new units began in October 1942. All British tanks of this type fell into separate Guards tank regiments, which were formed according to staff No. 010/267. According to the staff list, each regiment consisted of 21 tanks and 3 armored vehicles. The first on October 8, 1942, formed the 47th, 48th, 49th and 50th separate Guards tank regiments. 50th Guards. TP originally was armed exclusively with Churchill II (out of 20 Churchill II supplied, 19 were sent to the 50th Guards Heavy Tank Regiment; another tank was in the 194th Tank Training Brigade), but later it was equipped with two Churchill III. In general, statistics on the number of tanks that had various defects looked far from rosy. In the 47th Guards Tank Regiment, certain faults were found on 12 tanks, in the 48th Guards. tp at 16, in the 49th Guards. TP 15 and 50 Guards. TP - to 8. It is not surprising that the sending to the front was delayed.
During operation, it was found that the tanks were stalling on the icy hillsides since their tracks did not provide a sufficiently reliable grip. As a result, small metal spikes were riveted on the tracks, which made it possible to improve the tank maneuverability.
The 48th Guards Tank Regiment was the first to be recognized as combat-ready. December 31, 1942, he entered the disposal of the commander of the Don Front.
48th Guards. TP was not the only Churchill regiment that fought at Stalingrad. Nearby acted 47th Guards. tp, which since January 9 was used as part of the 65th Army. He acted jointly with the 91st Tank Brigade, 33rd Rifle, and 67th Guards Rifle Divisions. By the end of January, the regiment was fighting in the area of the Barricades factory, while only 3 of its vehicles remained fully operational. As in the case of the 48th Guards. tp, most of his cars were not lost forever but required repairs.
The next unit on the Churchill, which entered the battle, was the 50th Guards Tank Regiment. On March 8, he made a march to the railway station in Gorky, and on the 16th, a train with materiel of 50 Guards. tp arrived at the station Voybokalo Leningrad region. The tanks went on the first attack on March 19th.
