I know, but it's done in the style of a commercial :)  It it really WERE a commercial, it'd probably be banned for being misleading advertising!   :lol:

This was already posted on US forums, but it's still awesome. I think "M10 Duck" holds true in WoT as well. It's about as durable as duck.

Well i have seen them in action. They pack a very accurate gun you know! They used to be in service for the reserve force in my country until some 12 years ago!

Do you see how the turret is operated? LOL. not in WOT though, they have state of the art FAST turret rotators....hehe

-The main shortcoming of the M-10'x 3 inch cannon was its APHE round, which was the round most commonly used for engaging tanks. The 3 inch APHE round was based on the naval 3 inch round and had a small charge in the rear of the round which was supposed to explode after penetration of the targeted tank's armor plating. Unfortunately it was discovered that it exploded on impact or shortly thereafter, causing the round not to penetrate. It is still a puzzling mystery as to why this problem was never addressed with a better base fuse or by deleting the small HE charge in the rear of the round. This was also the problem with the towed version of the 3 inch cannon, the M-5, in the antitank role.[4]

Combat use
M10 in action near Saint-Lô, June 1944.
M10 of the 701st Tank Destroyer Battalion advances along a mountain road in Italy, 3 March 1945.In its combat debut in Tunisia in 1943 during the North African campaign, the M10 was successful as its M7 3-inch gun could destroy most German tanks then in service. The M10's heavy chassis did not conform to the tank destroyer doctrine of employing very light high-speed vehicles, and starting in mid-1944 it began to be supplemented by the 76mm Gun Motor Carriage M18 "Hellcat". Later in the Battle of Normandy, the M10's gun proved to be ineffective against the frontal armor of the newer German Tiger and Panther tanks unless firing HVAP rounds,[5] but was effective against lighter tanks such as the Panzer IV medium tank and other lighter vehicles and self propelled guns. By the fall of 1944 the improved 90mm Gun Motor Carriage M36 began to arrive in Europe as well. In the Pacific war, US Army M10s were used for infantry support but were unpopular due to their open-topped turrets, which made them more vulnerable than a fully enclosed tank to Japanese close-in infantry attacks.

Approximately 54 M10s were supplied to the USSR though their use by the Red Army service is largely unrecorded. The M10 also equipped units of the Free French Army; one M10 named Sirocco, part of the Régiment Blindé de Fusiliers Marins composed of French sailors, famously disabled a Panther on the Place de la Concorde during the liberation of Paris. British M10s were designated as (Gun) 3 inch Self Propelled Wolverine (3in SP Wolverine) or "M10 3 in SP" and as with all British self-propelled guns were operated by Royal Artillery units. They saw action in Italy and France, many being upgunned with the more effective 17-pounder gun (as the 17pdr SP Achilles) from 1944 onwards.

The M10's open-topped turret left the crew vulnerable to artillery and mortar fire as well as infantry close assault, especially in urban combat and wooded areas. By the end of the war its armor was too thin to provide protection from the newer German tanks and anti-tank guns. The other main disadvantage of the M10 was its very slow speed of turret rotation, as the turret traverse was unpowered and the crew had to hand-crank the turret around. It took approximately two minutes to rotate a full 360 degrees. U.S. tank destroyers fired many more high-explosive shells than anti-tank ammunition, indicating that they were employed much like the tanks they were supposed to support.[citation needed]

Good to take out pz3 and pz5 and that sort, poor against Panter and Tiger.

When the M10 was deployed back in 1942, it was actually very effective.But in 1944 its gun was outdated. Just like with the stalling of the Pershing, High people in the US commanded prevented the M10 being upgraded for a long time.

If the armoured board was allowed to do what they planned, the M4 sherman for example, would have been phased out in 1943 already, supplemented by and replaced by the M27, wich was a combinment of all the good things of the T20-22-23 program

um, no
germans tried to mask panther to look like M10. it dodnt work for too long.

M10 was good, surely good against main tanks of the german force (panzer 3 and 4) but did not stand much chance against panther or tiger.

Nope. 5 Panther tanks where disguised as M10 wolverines
and used during the battle of the bulge

They got quickly recognized and destroyed by a single 57mm gun
