Response to Churchill in Tunisa and Italy

The Churchill you mention with a 3" in the turret was the Churchill I CS (close support).

Never heard of the 2 pdr being mounted in the hull, though, not sure what the point would be either- by then the Is and IIs had been replaced by the IIIs and IVs. Could see the I CS lasting into Italy- as you say each regiment had 6 'Close Support' tanks, which would be their purpose, and there seems to have never been a CS version of the IIIs and IVs

As far as I knew, the US 75mm had HE (high explosive) rounds available, so not sure that IV (NA75) equipped regiments would have needed them.

Mind you, there was a HE round available for the 6pdr- and those regiments had CS troops so...

Indeed the british 75mm had an HE round, but there was still the Churchill V and VIII with a 95mm Howitzer, so go figure....
