The Churchill Crocodile was a British flame-throwing tank of late Second World War. It was a variant of the Tank, Infantry, Mk VI (A22). The Crocodile was introduced as one of the specialised armoured vehicles developed under Major-General Percy Hobart, informally known as "Hobart's Funnies". It was produced from October 1943, in time for the Normandy invasion. Around 800 were produced.
"The British built this war machine by placing a flame-thrower in a Churchill tank. German soldiers feared the Crocodile, often breaking contact when they encountered one."
— In-game description
The Churchill Crocodile is featured in Battlefield V. The vehicle can be called into battle by Squad Leaders as part of the Squad Reinforcement system for the United Kingdom for 20750 points. In terms of performance, it functions similar to the standard Churchill with a few additional attachments: the cannon is upgraded to a heavier 75mm round, and the tank also carries several AP rounds in reserve. It is also capable of dropping a smoke screen on its position to cover a retreat, and there are now four seats instead of the usual three. The second seat is armed with a somewhat length flamethrower facing forward, with the third seat being a standard coaxial LMG. The fourth seat is the usual exposed top gunner position. A small, two wheeled tank is towed behind the tank at all times, being the main fuel source for the flamethrower attachement.
