17pdr SP Achilles is a British tank destroyer.

DescriptionEdit

As the 3-inch M7 gun is becoming less potent against the newer German tanks, the British decided to upgrade their M10 Wolverine with the 17-pounder anti-tank gun, resulting in the 17pdr SP Achilles.

The up-gunned tank destroyer is a force to be reckoned with, as it is capable of defeating most tanks. However, just like its predecessor, it is lightly armoured, therefore it should support other tanks in an armoured engagement or participate in ambushes instead of engaging enemies head-on. For self-defense against infantry, the Achilles has a rearward facing M2 Browning machine gun located at the back of the gun turret

The Achilles appears in maps set in mid-1943 and thereafter.

TriviaEdit

The vehicle is simply known as "Achilles IIc" in the game.
