The American-built Sherman tank has been supplied to the British Army in large numbers, becoming the standard tank by 1944. Most British armoured squadrons (as they call their tank companies) are equipped with Sherman tanks. Combining good mobility with medium armour and a good all-round gun, the Sherman is an effective all-purpose battle tank.
Sherman armoured troops combine the general-purpose Sherman tank with the Firefly specialist anti-tank variant. The Firefly is armed with the 17 pdr anti-tank gun which is ideal for taking out the big German tanks. The Firefly will keep the enemy tanks occupied as your Sherman tanks rush around the flank to finish them off.
The Churchill infantry tank is designed to move at a walking pace ahead of the infantry, knocking out enemy machine guns as they advance, secure behind its heavy armour.
The heavily-armoured Churchill tanks work closely with the infantry, escorting them forward and providing direct fire support in order to get them onto the objective.
The American-built Stuart light tank gives British armoured regiments their own scouting capability. It's well-enough armed and armoured to deal with light opposition, and fast enough to avoid anything bigger.
A motor company is essentially a motorised rifle company, just with fewer men and more weapons to make it easier to get forward over crowded roads. Their transports are unarmed, so are usually left safely out of the way during battles.
The carrier platoon gives the motor company it's own scouting force to locate the enemy, protect its flanks, or find sneaky routes forward that the enemy hasn't guarded. Carriers might look like miniature tanks and are good at beating up infantry.
The American M10 provided the British with an effective mobile anti-tank gun, especially when they fitted it with their own deadly 17 pdr gun.
The versatile 25-pounder entered service just before the war began, and remains the main British field gun. Its main ammunition is an 11.5kg (25lb) 87.6mm high-explosive shell, with smoke and solid armour-piercing rounds also available.
