Description
 
Solido VER9026 US M10 Tank Destroyer in Olive Drab (1:50 Scale) "Seek, strike and destroy."
- Motto of the US Tank Destroyer Forces during World War II

During World War II, American doctrine called for tank destroyers to engage enemy tanks while tanks were used principally to support the infantry. The M10 "Wolverine" used a Sherman tank hull with a special open-topped turret that carried a 3-inch gun. The gun fired the AP M79 armour-piercing shell that could cut through 4 inches of armor at a range of 1,000 yards. The back of the turret carried a large counterweight which gave it a distinctive shape.

For local defence a heavy .50 caliber M2 machine gun was mounted on the turret and the crew were equipped with .30 carbines. The Wolverine is perhaps best known as the vehicle in which highly decorated Army Sergeant Audie Murphy single-handedly fought off a German combined arms attack near the Colmar region.

Pictured here is a 1:50 scale replica of a US M10 Tank Destroyer in Olive Drab. Sold Out!
