Just bought Armageddon by Max Hastings (about the end of WW2), and on the cover is this tank:

I have no idea what tank it is! Looks a bit like a T14, but it never saw service. So, I have absolutely no idea which is weird as I'm normally pretty good with this sort of thing.

 

Thanks!

Seems like a M10 Wolverine or M36 Jackson hull with a non-TD gun turret, can't identify the specific model either.

Ahh yes- so it is. Many thanks, I never played them in WoT, so that explains the lack of recognition (nor do I see them much on the battlefield!)

 

Cheers :)

Is it? It seems like a Sherman-ish turret to me...
