Historical Background:

M10 Tank Destroyer (Wolverine): Based on the M4 Sherman chassis, the M10 was armed with the 3-inch (76.2 mm) M7 Gun. It served as a mobile tank destroyer for the US Army during World War II, known for its turret-mounted gun and effective anti-tank capabilities. Approximately 6,706 units were produced.

17-pounder SP Achilles: A variant of the M10 used by British, Canadian, and Polish forces, equipped with the powerful 17-pounder (76 mm) anti-tank gun. This variant provided superior armor penetration compared to the original M10's 3-inch gun.

M36 Tank Destroyer (Jackson): An upgraded version of the M10, the M36 replaced the 3-inch gun with a formidable 90mm gun. It first saw combat in Europe in 1944 and proved highly effective against German armored units. Around 1,400 units were produced during the war.
