Does anyone have any info on what the T-18 Tank destroyer is? The only tank I can find is an Armored Car the US produced the brits.

Search for T18 75 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage.
It used a M3 Stuart Hull.

Me, too !

It has great armor for its tier, a nice HE gun which can do a lot of damage and is really mobile/fast.

Sold my elite AT-1, because this little "blockhouse on wheels" is so much fun to play.

PS: Hold a flank completely alone against 4 tanks yesterday with the T-18:  Me: 4 / Enemy tanks: 0  :)

For its tier it's a great TD, good armor great gun and and is really mobile. Only problem it's always the lowest tier in battle :blink:

the front armour thickness is beyond anything i've seen in a tier two vehicle.
the upgraded 75mm howitzer is hilariously overpowered. i've oneshotted loads of tanks and crippled others it's just ridiculously easy to play.

To answer the OP, two Howitzer Motor Carriages T18 were built. The decision to cancel the program was made in April 1942 since the M8 GMC seemed to be far more satisfactory a design. The first was delivered in May 1942, so it was just a case of finishing off the production run which had been ordered.

The specs were for a 75mm pack howitzer (M1A1) with elvation of +20 -5, and traverse of 15 left and right. 42 rounds of 75mm were carried. Armor was 2" frontal, 1 1/14 to the sides and top, and 1" in the rear.
