The M10 Tank Destroyer (christened the “Wolverine” by the British) was a WW2 US tank destroyer based on the chassis of the M4 Sherman tank fitted with the 3-inch (76.2 mm) M7 Gun. It was numerically the most important US tank destroyer of WW2 and combined a reasonably potent anti-tank weapon with a turreted platform. Despite the introduction of more-powerful types as replacements, it remained in service until the end of the war. A total of 6,706 were built between 1942 & 1943. The British converted some M10s to use their successful 17-pounder (76 mm) anti-tank gun, which they designated as “17pdr SP Achilles”. The turret needed modification to take the longer gun. The 17-pounder was of a similar bore, but longer and using a larger propellant charge had far superior armour penetration capability. It was used by the British, Canadian, and Polish armies in Italy and northwest Europe. About 1,110 were built.
