The Churchill infantry tank with General Staff number A43, the Black Prince. This tank was assigned to an experimental development of a new Churchill tank with a longer and wider hull and a QF 17-pounder – 76 mm gun. It was named after Edward, the Black Prince, a famous 14th century military leader. The tank became obsolete before the production process even started for the Sherman Firefly and the tank Cruiser Comet used the same gun and had proven themself on the battlefields in France.
