The subject of this article, Churchill AVRE, has been cut from the final version of a Battlefield game.


The Churchill AVRE (Assault Vehicle Royal Engineers) was a modification of the Churchill infantry tank used during World War II. Developed in response to the disastrous Dieppe Raid, the AVRE was one of several in a series nicknamed Hobbart's Funnies which were specialised engineering vehicles intended for obstacle clearing during beach landings. The AVRE was equipped with a 290mm spigot mortar dubbed the "Flying Dustbin" which could launch high-explosive charges for destroying barricades, bunkers and minefields. The vehicle saw action during and after D-Day.

Battlefield VEdit

The Churchill AVRE is a vehicle cut from Battlefield V. It is one of a class of self-propelled artillery vehicles planned for and eventually cut from the game, alongside the Bishop, Hummel and Grille SPGs. The AVRE can be seen in the Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer.

The vehicle featured a two position layout, seating a driver and hull machine gunner. It was also intended to be equipped with Snake Launchers.
