1943 - USA M18 Gun Motor Carriage "Hellcat"

Armament:       1 - 76mm gun
                            1 - 0.5" MG AA
Engine:             Continental, 9 cyl., radial air-
                             cooled, gas, 340 or 400 hp
Speed;               55 mph
Range;               105 miles

Much smaller and lighter than M-10. Over 2,500 built.
Only AFV designed specifically for TD. Excellent
power-to-weight ratio. Fastest production AFV of WWII .
Used "shoot and scoot" tactics. Also used as an assault
gun and Self-Propelled Artillery. Used the same 76mm gun
as the Sherman. Light  weight and a 400 hp engine gave it 
excellent speed and mobility. One of the best Tank Destroyers
of WWII.
