M10 Wolverine is an American tank destroyer.

DescriptionEdit

The M10 is the standard American tank destroyer, which is also fielded by the British and the Free French. Its main armament is the 3-inch M7 gun, which is powerful against the more common medium tanks, but less so against heavy tanks. However the tank destroyer is lightly armoured, therefore it cannot withstand much punishment in an armoured engagement. For self-defense against infantry, the M36 has a rearward facing M2 Browning machine gun located at the back of the gun turret.

Over the course of the war, the Wolverine's 76mm gun proved to be less and less sufficient against the newer German tanks. The British remedied this by equipping the tank destroyer with the 17-pounder anti-tank gun, resulting in the 17pdr SP Achilles. The Americans upgraded theirs with the 90mm M3 gun, resulting in the M36 Jackson.

The M10 appears in maps set in 1943 and thereafter, fighting in multiple theatres, including North Africa, Italy, and northwest Europe.
