Tank Destroyers

Tank Destroyer vehicles were new types of tanks that made their first appearance on the battlefield in World War II. As military tactics had continued to evolve and fast movement was vital, the use of tanks with infantry support became a cornerstone of ground operations. An effective fighting countermeasure to the tanks became the Tank Destroyer.

Tank Destroyer Patch

A Tank Destroyer is simply a self propelled anti tank gun. They were typically lightly armored, but much faster and maneuverable than regular battle tanks. This allowed them to work in small quarters but also at long range. They could maneuver for a shot and use hit an run tactics before a large tank could crank their turret around for a shot. These features made the tank destroyer very effective on the battlefield.

The most common U.S. tank destroyer or TD in WWI was the 3in Gun Motor Carriage M10. Later models included the 90mm Gun Motor Carriage M36 and the 76mm Gun Motor Carriage M18. Some TD units were assigned to Armored Divisions, while others were attached to Infantry Units.

Combat Reels has a number of tank destroyer scenes on various films. If you are a TD enthusiast, check out the following DVDs:
