||includes four M10 Tank Destroyers (with optional Duckbills & Top Armour upgrades) with crew and plastic parts sprue, two Tank Stowage sprues, one Decal sheet & eight Rare-earth magnets.
The M10 3” GMC (gun motor carriage) tank destroyer was developed to handle medium and heavy German tanks. It was the first destroyer to incorporate a turret, which housed the 3” anti-tank gun, the best in the US arsenal at the time.
The M10 soldiered on from the North African campaign to the end of the war. During that time crews made some field modifications to improve some of the vehicle’s major weaknesses, such as the open fighting compartment and the thin frontal armour, with overhead protection and improvised armour using sandbags.
The M10s typically served infantry divisions, offering their guns to blast German pillboxes when not otherwise engaged with enemy tanks.
