The M10 Tank Destroyer Platoon is now rolling from the factories to a battlefield near you, order your reinforcements now!
Our plastic set brings to the US and British armies a hard hitting answer to the much feared German big cats of the European battlefields in WWII. The kit is simple to build but is packed with fantastic details and parts to make both American and British crewmen.
The US Tank Destroyer Board wanted a gun that was more powerful than the 75mm, mounted in a vehicle that had a lower silhouette than a Sherman tank. To meet this requirement it was decided to opt for an open-topped five-sided welded turret and relatively thin armour. The final plans were standardised in June 1942 and production began in September.
The M10 had an M7 3-inch (76.2mm) anti-tank gun, which was a considerable improvement over the 75mm carried by the Sherman. The M10’s mere 37mm of armour made it vulnerable to anti-tank weapons so its main role was defensive, firing from concealed positions.
US and British
The M10 was also widely used by the British, who called it the Wolverine. As such the kit includes parts to make both American and British crewmen as well as decals for both nations.
