HobbyMaster Prebuilt 1/72 US M10 Tank Destroyer 601st Tank Destroyer Bttn HG3424
HobbyMaster Prebuilt 1/72 US M10 Tank Destroyer 601st Tank Destroyer Bttn HG3424
In 1943 the US introduced the M10 as a SP anti-tank gun using the carriage of the M4
tank and a 3-inch M7 AA Gun. The British took their M10s and exchanged the 3-inch gun
for the larger 17-pdr that had much better stopping power against the Panther and
Tigers. They added some armor to the turret and named it Achilles. The first modified
tanks went into service in 1944 and by the end of WWII 1,100 of the 1,650 M10s the
British received under the Lend Lease Program became known as Achilles.


On July 9, 1943; now equipped with the M10 Tank Destroyer the 601st Tank Destroyer
Battalion was part of the assault on Sicily that lasted until August 17, 1943. From
September 9, 1943 until January 1944 Naples was the primary target for the Allies
because of its port for re-supply and nearby Foggio had an important airfield. On June 4,
1944 Rome was finally liberated and the 601st TDB would transfer to Southern France in
August 1944. The M10 proved to be lacking because of its poor speed, poor frontal
armor and high profile.
