Unlike tanks, which were intended for infantry support, tank destroyers were self-propelled guns used in the antitank role and which relied on speed rather than armor for their protection.
First used in 1943 in Tunisia, the M10 was successful against the German tanks of the time, but as the war progressed, the vehicle's major weaknesses of thin armor, an open-topped turret and the slow speed of turret rotation (hand-cranked), it could not prevail against the newest Tiger and Panther tanks and by the end of 1944 it began to be replaced by more effective models. The British M10 was known as the Wolverine and an improved model armed with the more effective 17 pounder Mark V gun was called the Achilles. The Red Army and the Free French Army also used this AFV.

Are you sure this vehicle is M10, not M36 ? The gun barrel looks more like 90mm.

There were 3 TDs in the US inventory during WW2: The M10, M18 Hellcat, and the M36. They all had turret mounted guns. They were meant to be used defensively against tanks as a type of self-propelled gun, but wound up being used as tanks in support of infantry.

It's place has been taken over by main battle tanks such as the Abrams, Leopard, T-90, etc. which shoot armor-piercing rounds.

you know I wonder, tanks were orginally meant to support troops but now only against other tanks is that a good idea?

The Abrams only carries ammunition to fight other armored vehicles. With the exception of a canister round that fires thousands of tiny balls like a huge shotgun, it has nothing to use against infantry, bunkers, buildings and soft-skinned vehicles. Check out this site, this guy has a lot of criticisms of US military equipment: [link]

Jackson was not post war. What was post war was the roof kit they put on it and the M-10.

here's a picture of this same vehicle listed in wikipedia as an M-36.

Thanks for catching that. I had the same picture under two different titles, so I deleted the M-10.

It's an M36. It's listed in my gallery both ways for some reason.

Where was this taken?

I also see an M551 Sheridan on the right.

American tank/tank destroyer doctrine was sooo 1930's.

There's a picture of a 37mm M3 antitank gun in my gallery. That and a jeep to tow it were supposed to drive all enemy tanks off the battlefield.

The M10 is a mini tank, and with a speed of up to 32 miles an hour, this little guy can move!

Are you into military vehicles, Skoshi?
