The US M10 tank destroyer was designed for use against armored vehicles, combining heavy firepower, excellent mobility and sloping armor with good ballistic qualities. The M10 boasted a 3-inch gun mounted within a semi-open turret on a medium tank chassis. Powerful and agile, the open-topped turret was nevertheless a hindrance since it did not provide protection to its crew against air bursts and falling debris.
