M36 Jackson is an American tank destroyer.

DescriptionEdit

The M36 Jackson is essentially an M10 Wolverine equipped with the more powerful 90mm M3 gun. With the 90mm gun, the tank destroyer is a threat to many tanks. However, it also inherits its predecessor's light armour, making it too fragile for a head-on engagement, but ideal at ambushes or supporting tanks in armoured warfare. For self-defense against infantry, the M36 has a rearward facing M2 Browning machine gun located at the back of the gun turret.

A variant of the M36, M36B1, uses the chassis of M4A3 Sherman tank while retaining the gun and turret. This variant can be found in 4411-The Roer Plains.

The M36 appears from September 1944 onwards in European theatre.
