Infantry Tank, Black Prince (A43)

The Black Prince Infantry Tank (A43) was produced in an attempt to mount the 17-pounder anti-tank gun on a tank that used as many components from the Churchill as possible.

Draft specifications for the A43 were issued on 2 December 1943. The new tank was effectively an updated version of the Churchill, to be armed with a 17-pounder anti-tank gun, with a 3.7in gun as an alternative. Sloped armour was suggested, and it was to weigh around 50 tons.

The aim of the project was to produce a tank capable of carrying the new 17-pounder gun. This had been developed by Vickers as a 77mm gun, and in September 1943 it was selected for use by the Director of the Royal Armoured Corps, who preferred it to the US 76mm high velocity gun that was used in later Shermans. In turn the most successful wartime tank to carry the 17-pounder was the Sherman Firefly, a British modification of the tank. The A30 Challenger had run into problems, and work on the A41 Centurion was at a very early stage, so in September 1943 Vauxhall was asked to produce a version of the Churchill that could carry the new gun.

Vauxhall came up with an initial design that would have used a 350hp Bedford engine. In order to test this they took a Churchill, gave it a new five speed gearbox and added weights to bring it up to 50 tons. On 28 December 1943 this vehicle was tested against the Heavy Assault Tank A33 (Excelsior), another design that didn’t go anywhere, and reported that it was 'hardly worse'.

In May 1944 an order was placed for six prototypes, with three different configurations. The first was to carry a 17-pounder and an independent 20mm cannon in the turret. This had the highest priority. The second was armed with a 77mm gun and the third with a 95mm gun. If all went well 300 of the 17-pounder armed variant would be ordered, with deliveries to begin in May or June 1945. They would be followed by a version powered by a 600hp Meteor engine. Some, including the Director of the Royal Armoured Corps, pointed out that the original version would thus be underpowered, but their protests were brushed aside. When the A43 was completed it had a top speed of only 11mph, proving their case.

A full sized wooden mock-up was ready by August 1944, and the first prototype of the A43 Black Prince was completed by January 1945. It resembled an enlarged Churchill, with a wider hull to take the larger turret required and stronger suspension to cope with the extra weight. Otherwise it was visually similar, with a series of small road wheels, a horizontal return track, and the top of the superstructure level with the top of the tracks. It had the same frontal armour as late production Churchills, and the turret was similar in layout to the Churchill turret. It was armed with the 17-pounder and a coaxial Besa machine gun, with another Besa gun in the hull.

The third prototype of the Black Prince was examined at the tank ranges at Lulworth, and a report was produced in March 1945. The armament and turret was seen as a success, but the flat front to the hull and the turret mantlet were both criticised.

Work on the Black Prince was cancelled after the end of the war, in favour of the superior A41 Centurion, which was almost ready to enter service as the fighting ended.

Black Prince

The A.43 Black Prince is a premium gift rank IV British heavy tank with a battle rating of 6.0 (AB/RB) and 5.7 (SB). It was introduced in Update 1.53 "Firestorm" and is one of the first British tanks to be introduced into the game. It was initially available as a pre-order pack from the Gaijin store, but was discontinued after the 2017 Winter sales.

The A43 Black Prince is a modified Churchill tank equipped with the legendary Ordnance QF 17-pounder cannon a weapon made famous by the Sherman Firefly, M10 Achilles, and its ability to destroy the German 8.8 cm heavy tanks such as the Tiger tank. It also features a single 7.62 mm BESA machine gun, which works great for destroying light tanks and SPAA vehicles.

The A43 Black prince offers one of the most powerful guns available in the game, capable of destroying a Ferdinand, IS-2, and other tanks from over 1 km away. The reload time is great for its rank, at a mere 7.6s and when coupled with the tank's heavy armour, can stand as quite a lethal opponent.

However, the Black Prince does have some downsides. The extra armour adds extra weight to the vehicle, which makes it extremely slow with a top speed of 17 km/h (10 mph) and only -2 km/h (-1 mph) reverse speed. With the tank's low profile, it makes it difficult to see over foreign obstacles such as debris, hills and walls.


Survivors

The only intact Black Prince is held by The Tank Museum in Bovington, UK it is the fourth of the six prototypes that were built. It has recently been restored to running condition. Α] A Black Prince hull was recovered from Salisbury Plain in the 1980s as part of the Tony Budge Collection, and is now held by the Rex and Rod Cadman Collection. Β]


Black Prince

The Black Prince has a similar playstyle to the preceding Churchill series of tanks. However, being the most advanced Churchill infantry support tank ever developed, it is a far more enjoyable tank to play than the Churchill VII. Oddly enough on paper, the Black Prince's armor is in fact worse than the Churchill VII, having less rear armor than its predecessor (it does have the same front and side armour). Despite this, the Black Prince's armor is actually more reliable with very small weakspots that can be covered through angling, which isn't difficult due to its decent traverse speed. Add the fact that the Black Prince the largest health pool of the tier VII heavies and you've got a tank that can really tank shots.

If you are top tier, you can have a lot of fun. Unlike the first two UK heavies, the Black Prince has better agility than it seems on paper (most likely due to its good terrain passability), and when used tactically it can make a brawler in a pinch, though it is generally a better idea to avoid close combat in order to fully utilize the advantages of your gun. It is vital especially in close quarters to angle your armor, preferably slightly to the right at around thirty degrees. Aside from the hatch and machine gun on the unsloped face of your driver's compartment and your very shallow commander's cupola, you are extremely difficult to penetrate from the front, even at point blank range. Use your decent turning speed to your advantage and make those weak points harder to hit, and you will survive for a long time. If you can jam your front end against a rock or other cover with just your sharply angled side and your turret exposed to enemy fire, you can also become a frustrating blockade for any tank at your tier (this tactic is also known as sidescraping). While Black Prince's armor can bounce shots from KV-1S' and IS's 122 mm gun, driver should fear the Tiger and T-29, which with a suitable drivers can reliably penetrate you armor and empty your health pool.

Note that once you're set in a direction, it will be rather difficult to backtrack as the Black Prince's mediocre top speed won't get you there in time instead, you should consider where your allies are going and where you can be of most use. If you are close to the middle or bottom tier, stick to the second line and provide support with the excellent 17 pounder, which can penetrate weak spots on most high tier tanks easily thanks to its great accuracy and aim time and good penetration. The damage will seem lacking but the rate of fire is impressive and the gun will drain all but the largest health pools in a short time. Do be ready to take the initiative though and to lead an assault through where the enemy lines are weak. Given the fast reload of your gun and your heavy armor, you can charge through enemy fire and get into their faces as your allies follow you up.

No matter what the fight, don't stray too far from your support. The Black Prince can fight a lot of things and win head to head, but if you enter combat with more than one agile, well-armed tank in close quarters your chances of victory plummet. Shots to your exposed sides and rear carry a high chance of injuring a crew member, track your tank, or worse destroy your ammo rack. This will more than double your reload time and make your cannon far less potent due to its low alpha damage.

Take note that when cornering or making tight turns your sides will be exposed long before your turret and gun, allowing enemies to potentially cause extensive damage to your exposed hull. Instead of making tight turns, you should take corners from far off the edge and angle yourself diagonally. This makes it harder for enemies hiding around the corner to penetrate you due to the shallow angle of your sides, and will leave your gun clear to fire at the enemy. This tactic is valid on all Churchill Tank Models.

Despite it's flaws though, Black Prince is basically a TOG that has excellent armor, more health, a tier higher, more mobility, and the same gun. So if you like the TOG, this is for you. When put into tier 7 battles, it is unstoppable. With a combination of insane armor and health, it can 'TOG' it out and even beat the heaviest tanks.

Early Research

The tank doesn't have many research options, and those don't make any big differences, including the unrequired suspension. The choices will depend if you favour fire-power over mobility, but once again, no change will have outlandish results. The 2nd engine is MUCH lower weight than the first, so you can easily mount a full set of equipment without ever upgrading the weight limit. The upgrade to your gun seems small on paper but the performance in battle is noticeably improved, especially against thick armor.


Allied Tanks and Combat Vehicles of World War II

First attempt to mount a large calibre high velocity gun in the Churchill chassis resulted in the Churchill 3in Gun Carrier, proposed and developed from September 1941. Production was limited by a reversal of policy in favour of concentrating on Churchills with 6pdr guns in 1942. For a variety of reasons, including limited numbers and indecision as to employment of a limited-traverse vehicle of this kind, the entire project was dropped in 1942 and the 3in Gun Carriers were later used to carry Snake mine detonating equipment. Meanwhile the A30 Challenger was developed as a cruiser tank with 17pdr gun in a widened, lengthened, Cromwell chassis. By September 1943, however, it had become clear that defects in the Challenger design were going to delay production at the crucial period when tanks with 17pdr guns were urgently needed for the forthcoming invasion of Europe. Design work on the new A41 (Centurion) had only just begun, and Vauxhall were therefore asked to go ahead and produce a version of the Churchill armed with the 17pdr gun as an interim vehicle with this armament. A proposal for doing this had been briefly considered and rejected two years previously in favour of the Gun Carrier, the main drawback being the narrowness of the Churchill hull which precluded the fitting of a turret wide enough to take the 17pdr.

Designated A43, the new vehicle was initially known as a "Super Churchill", but was later officially named Black Prince. While it utilised Churchill VII mechanical components as much as possible, the A43 involved much redesign work, mainly because of the wider hull required. The same Bedford twin-six engine was used as in the Churchill and this, combined with the increased weight (to 50 (long) tons), reduced the A43's top speed to only 11mph. Similar in external appearance to the Churchill VII, the Black Prince had wider (24in) tracks, and the air intakes were mounted on the hull top instead of at the side, with the engine exhausting at the hull rear. Six A43 prototypes were ordered and these were delivered for trials in May 1945, too late for combat as hostilities in Europe had ceased. Though given a full test programme, no production order was placed since the A41 Centurion was ready at the same time and proved a much superior vehicle.

The British Black Prince (A43) infantry tank. (790 x 474)

What is an Infantry tank? Ground support? Bunker buster?

British tanks were divided into Infantry and Cruiser variants

Infantry tanks were designed to be used in frontal attacks with the infantry, so theyɽ need to be heavily armoured, and it didn't matter if they were slow because the infantry can only move at walking pace

Cruisers meanwhile were designed to be fast breakthrough tanks, that could punch through the breach created by the infantry assault and quickly cause havoc behind enemy lines, making flanking attacks and disrupting supply lines. And because of the need to be fast they had to be lightly armoured

Generally speaking, the tanks were very good at their designed roles, Matilda 2s and Churchills were just about indestructible, and Cromwells and Comets were incredibly quick and dangerous. But they tend to face criticism because they weren't "jack of all trades" medium tanks like the Sherman, T-34 and Panzer 4

Potential history made a great video about British tanks (as part of a series on all the major power's AFVs)

Something that the troops can run behind, take cover behind and push up with i think, that doesn't easily get bogged down and that is quite steady-going. Bunker busters were more like the AVRE variants - also based off the Churchill chassis because it was so good at the stuff listed above.

In the Churchill's case this was proven by it's slow speed (12 mph foreward I think) but relative mobility, it didn't slow down and could climb steep hills.

The black prince improved on this with more armour, but was also slower (something that wasn't needed) but was fitted with a 17 pounder for better AT capability - something that the other Churchill's weren't very good at.

It also had its reliability issues and was eventually cancelled, there was no need for it in the end I think - though I'm not very knowledgeable on that part of its story.

If anyone could correct me on anything I've got wrong, please do. I love to learn about this kind of thing especially so it would well received of course.

Edit: wow sorry for the complete library I just deposited in your inbox.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

  • Low tiers will struggle against the armor.
  • Tracks absorb a lot of damage sidescraping can be effective.
  • Armor is very effective when angled.
  • Good rate of fire, accuracy, and depression (-8°) good when hull-down.
  • Large hit point pool.
  • Worst Alpha and penetration amongst T7 heavy tanks.
  • Second worst DPM amongst T7 heavy tanks.
  • Very low top speed.
  • Extremely painful grind to research this tank from the Churchill VII.
  • Armor is very flat and will struggle to withstand even concurrent tanks (like Tiger 1).

Performance

The Black Prince has a similar playstyle to the preceding Churchill series of tanks. It used to be the only tank of the Churchill series that had working armor, but sadly the HD transformation did change that. Not to mention that credible threats will simply load gold and easily penetrate your average armor.

Unlike the first two UK heavies, the Black Prince has better agility than it seems on paper (most likely due to its better terrain resistances), and when used tactically it can make a brawler in a pinch, though it is generally a better idea to avoid close combat in order to fully utilize the advantages of your gun, what little there are. It is vital especially in close quarters to angle your armor, preferably slightly to the right at around thirty degrees. If you can jam your front end against a rock or other cover with just your sharply angled side and your turret exposed to enemy fire, you can also become a frustrating blockade for any tank at your tier (this tactic is known as sidescraping). While the Black Prince's armor can often bounce shots from KV-3' and IS's 122 mm gun..

Note that once you're set in a direction, it will be rather difficult to backtrack as the Black Prince's awful top speed won't get you there in time instead, you should consider where your allies are going and where you can be of most use. If you are close to the bottom tier, stick to the second line and provide support with the accurate 17 pounder, which can penetrate weak spots on most high tier tanks easily thanks to its great accuracy and aim time and good penetration with premium rounds. The damage will seem lacking but the rate of fire is acceptable and the gun will drain all but the largest health pools in a short time. Be ready to take the initiative though and to lead an assault through where the enemy lines are weak. Given the fast reload of your gun, you can charge through enemy fire and get into their faces as your allies follow you up.

No matter what the fight, don't stray too far from your support. The Black Prince can fight a lot of opponents and win head to head, but if you enter combat with more than one agile, well-armed tank in close quarters your chances of victory plummet. Shots to your exposed sides and rear carry a high chance of injuring a crew member, track your tank, or worse destroy your ammo rack.

This tactic is valid on all Churchill Tank Models.

Despite it's flaws though, Black Prince is basically a TOG that has thicker armor, more health, a tier higher, more mobility, and the same gun. So if you like the TOG, this is for you. When put into tier 7 battles, it is usefull. Above that not so much, the 17 Pdr has no business being on a Tier 7 heavy tank.

The Black Prince was designed to mount a 17 pounder gun.

It was decided that the Churchill.

  • The Black Prince was an infantry support tank mounting the 17 pdr gun. It was conceived as a sort of super Churchill but despite being massively bigger and heavier it had the same engine. Only six were made and by 1945 the Centurion outclassed it so it was abandoned and never went into production. Only one complete example now survives at Bovington. I used Churchill wheels- adding extra bogies.

Infantry Tank, Black Prince (A43) - History

This vehicle was recovered to Bovington and held in storage at Sturminster Marshall, Dorset. The lower photograph (Source M.A.F.V.A) shows the vehicle as was before arrival at Bovington. The upper photograpg taken at Bvington some years ago..

The vehicle is now undergoing complete restoration on the Isle of Wight, probably back to a MkIII gun tank.

Early production vehicle without frontal turret bulges.

In Storage.
Reg. T251952/D - not thought to be original. There are photos
of this tank at Bovington in the 1950s with the number T251949 but number is also doubttful.

This vehicle would appear to be an early re-worked MkI or MkII which has been re-turretted and then upgraded to MkVI spec. by the mounting of a 75mm gun, ARV cuppola and MkVII suspension..

One of four gun carriers discovered burried on a range. The other three are with the Cadman brothers.

Imperial War Museum, Duxford.

Previously at Hermanville-sur-mer, Normandy. It is marked bulldog with a welded cradle on its upper hull front, Cheiftain tow ropes fitted as well as oddly shaped tin track guards. All welded up & epescopes missing. This vehicle will now undergo some restoration before becoming a centre piece of the part of the Land Warfare Hall's D-Day display.

Previously restored by 6 Armoured Workshop and 26 Engineers Regiment in 1986/7.

From Pounds Yard, Portsmouth.

Best of the three gun carriers owned by the Cadmans. There are plans to use parts from the other other two to cosmetically restore this vehicle for display in an international museum.

Gate guardian on the site of the old tank works now an industrial site.

Although now having the appearance of a gun tank, the turret attachment points for smoke lauchers, manlet cover fixing bevel and hull dozer attachment points indicate that this was originally an AVRE.

Sports the name SANDDUNE and markings of C Squadron 141 RAC. W/D number is displayed as T173174 and whilst this may be correct for the 'original SANDDUNE' the Museum vehicle is a later producion churchill.

Owned by the Lowick Homeguard Unit, Lowick, North-Northumberland

Formerly on Display at Museum of Army Transport, Beverley.

Displayed to represent a MkI, this vehicle is without doubt a MkII with a dummy 3" howitzer barrel mounted in what appears to be the BESA mount apperture. Also fitted with a ARV cupola !

Gate Guardian
The Hop Farm
Beltring.

Early production vehicle without frontal turret bulges. Suspect track guards, no air-intakes and a very suspect 17pdr gun !

Ran when placed in the Museum - not since.

Early production vehicle without frontal turret bulges.

Restored to running condition. From Pound's yard.

Manufactured by Vaxhalls 1944, as part of contract M 7454 for 1000.
Post-war Reg. No. 34ZR24 T251892
Wartime No. A22/12399/R7

Preston Isaac the Vehicle's Owner has contributed the following background info:

"Like most Crocodiles I got it came from Pounds, I think in 1975. We restored it to running order, but has not been run for a few years now, although we have plans afoot to get her going again, especially as we now have a spare recon engine.

All the internal fittings are original manufacture, being taken from donor vehicles in Pounds, which was possible in those days.

Army records showed she was one of a batch allocated to the R E's , which makes sense if she was either built as a Croc, or converted when new."

Gate guardian for the newly built Royal Wessex Yeomanry RHQ at Allenby Barracks, Bovington

Previously ATDU gate guardian and before that from Shrivenham R.C.M.S. where it was used as a nuclear phyisics test vehicle. Cosmetic restoration by B. Grundy.

Previously a range target at Larkhill

In storage, awaiting restoration. It was bought about three years ago from the Hall House Farm Historic Collection (a small museum near Kendal owned by David Cheeseman but now closed). It is a runner and it is totally complete less trailer (however a trailer has been located).

Bovington vehcile loaned out. Bridge absent, deteriorating.

Salvaged from a gunnery range in Germany some 30 years ago and given a cosmetic restoration by members of S.E.M.E.. (School of Electrical & Mechanical Engineers). Lacks the rear spade anchor, engine and winch.

Attached plaque reads:
"This Churchill A.R.V. was restored to its present condition by Mr L Marshall, Mr A Hansford of HVFS SEME Bordon from July 78-Sept 79"

located on a disused anti-tank range - source: After the Battle No.90 (1995).

Identifiable as a MkV from the turret mantlet apperture. May have been driven into position as the cover plate over the sprocket centre is intact (towing usually generally requires the disconnection of the final drive spines and hence the removal of his plate).

ACCESS: By foot along path from South Downs Way, Springhead Hill. Map Reference: TQ 072122.

"It was during the training leading up to the Dieppe raid that 'A' Squadron, 14th Canadian Army Tank Battalion (Calgary Regt.), suffered what was then unceremoniously termed a 'dead-head'. This was the serious breakdown of a tank, and it is believed that due to the impending Dieppe raid and the gradual re-supply with Mark IIIs, this 'dead-head' was deemed as unsuitable for repair and withdrawn from service. It was then handed over to the infantry units of the 2nd Canadian Army Division and taken by them to the infantry training grounds above Storrington. Here the tank was used as a range target being fired upon by PIAT anti-tank weapons, amongst others, and when the troops pulled out after the war, was left sitting on the Downs. After the war, a member of the range clearing teams, who now lives in Storrington, remembers that to remove the tank it was simply rolled over into a bomb crater and buried!

On the 20th November 1993, the tank was recovered by the R.E.M.E. having been unearthed over the previous years by a number of hardy enthusiasts. Once rolled out of its grave it was placed on the edge of the field where it remains to this day."

This tank was buried in the late 1970s and unearthed in 2002. The vehicle has now been cosmetically as a gate guard for the North Irish Horse in Belfast.

The vehicle has a late MkIV/MkV turret with ARV cuppola and applique armour to the hull sides so may be a MkXLT.

Recently unearthed south of Bordon Camp in Hampshire

In very poor condition but possibly to undergo a comestic restoration to provide a gate guardian.
