Au contraire, it should be Damsels and Dreadnoughts. It's a British technology, and they should be recognized for it. That sort of goes for Girls und Panzer, come to think of it.

She needs chocolate gloves than.

Damsels and Dreadnoughts is fine, but British tanks aren't very iconic for the Second World War.

Sure they are. Matilda IIs are pretty famous, and so are Churchills. Everyone should also know about Centurions too, given how game-changing they are.

If anything, the German tanks are better known than they really should be.

But... Battle of the Bulge movie was hardly accurate

We've already had a Kelly's Heroes homage, and that was entirely fictional, so why not?

What about a Hetzer from the side or rear?

Though it looks to me like the jadgtiger is there to cover the flag tank from Miho and company's fire.

Well, it's not quite the correct Churchill model (I think yours is a Mk. IV NA75 with a Sherman gun mantle and 75mm M3 gun, whereas St. Gloriana uses a Mk. VII), but still that looks quite nice.

The best Churchill gun and the best hull never served togeather.
There's nothing unwise about the British decision to go with a 75mm gun on the Churchill. Churchills are primarily infantry support tanks, so they would be shooting at non-tank targets the vast majority of the time. And so a larger-caliber gun with good HE rounds is preferable over a good anti-armor gun with less HE capability. The Soviets made the same choice to go with a 122mm gun instead of a 100mm gun on the IS-2.
