M10 IIC Achilles. A British modification of the American M10 Tank Destroyer. It’s main upgrade was replacing the M10 75/76 mm gun with the British 17 pounder anti tank gun. It could penetrate Tiger and Panther armor from 1km away and saw action with the 62nd Anti Tank Regiment in Caen in July 1944 where they destroyed 13 German tanks. At bottom is a comparison of it and my standard M10
