Description[edit source]

The U.S. tank destroyer doctrine dictates mobility and firepower at the cost of armor protection. The M10 is armed with a hefty 76.2mm cannon and will pose a real threat to enemy tanks. It is known as the ‘Wolverine’ to the British, and simply as ‘TD’ to U.S. soldiers.

Tips

  • As with the M18 Hellcat, the M10 sacrifices armor for speed and mobility. Use this to your advantage when flanking the enemy, firing at their side and rear.
  • The velocity of the APCBC M62 round is 34% slower than the AP M79 Shot, and will thus arc more. Ensure to re-zero your sights when switching between the two.
  • The M10 does not carry a huge amount of ammunition, it may be advised to carry both APCBC and AP as backup instead of HE, when hunting tanks.
  • The M10 costs almost half as much to spawn that the M18. Consider spawning a M10 when facing weaker adversaries such as light tanks.
  • Due to the thin armor the M10 should not be played like a normal tank, but rather as a tank destroyer. I.e. avoid infantry hotspots such as capture zones, avoid open fields. Flank the enemy, relocate after a tank kill. Act from the shadows. An unaware enemy tank is an easy kill.
  • When engaging a strong enemy tank such as the Panther, it is advised to pause firing once the enemy starts turning their front towards you. Wait until they turn away before resuming fire.
  • The wrench is your best friend. make sure to repair your M10 whenever possible, for it is quite fragile.
  • Standing on top of your tank can make a good vantage point to see above bushes/ ridges using your binoculars.
