The M18 first saw combat in northwest Europe and Italy during the summer of 1944. It excelled at ambush and hit-and-run tactics. Its low silhouette, high firepower and great speed gave it the capability of destroying all but the heaviest of German armor, although it was too lightly armored to stand and fight.

The M12 GMC was one of the first self-propelled weapons of WWII in the US arsenal. Essentially, the M12 mounted a WWI-era 155mm gun on an M3 tank chassis. The engine was moved forward to provide a working space at the rear of the hull. It was in this space that a WWI Model M1917 or M1918 155mm gun was mounted.
