The American M10 Tank Destroyer served during World War II. After the United States entered the conflict and the creation of anti-tank units Tank Destroyer Force was needed a machine to equip the new battalions. After the previous models were criticized for poor construction, the army applied for a cannon vehicle in a fully rotating turret before November 1941. The prototype M10 was established in early 1942, the army got into hands in April.
After the required changes to the hull and the tower was a modified version in June 1942 ready for production under the designation 3-inch Gun Motor Carriage M10. It was carrying a 3-inch (76.2 mm) M7 gun in a turret mounted on a modified chassis of the M4A2 Sherman. Production ran from September 1942 to December 1943. The M10 was the most important tank destroyer of the United States in World War II.
This machine combined the advantages of thin but beveled armor, a reliable M4 Sherman drivetrain, and a powerful enough anti-tank gun installed in an open top turret. Although compared to the more powerful German tanks like Panther and the advent of more powerful and better designed machines to replace it, the M10 was already outdated, remained in service until the very end of the war.
