M10 tank destroyer - Wolverine

The M10 was a U.S. tank destroyer, nick named 'TD' ( tank destroyer) by the American troops and the 'Wolverine' by the British. The tank destroyers were intended to counter German Panzer assaults. Their tactics were called 'shoot and scoot'. They took a hiding position and shot at the approaching German tanks and then immediately moved away before the Germans could shoot back. Tank destroyers were the only significant new concept that the U.S. army brought to armored warfare in the Second World War.
