WGS New Releases - M18 Hellcat

 Mais uma das novidades da Wargames-South, o M18 "Hellcat"

Another new model from Wargames-South, the M18 "Hellcat"

From Wiki:
The 76 mm Gun Motor Carriage (GMC) M18 was an American tank destroyer of World War II. The manufacturer, Buick, gave it the nickname "Hellcat" and it was the fastest tracked armored fighting vehicle during the war with a top speed up to 60 mph. Hellcat crews took advantage of the vehicle's speed to protect against hits to its thin armor. Many German Panther and Tiger tanks were destroyed because they could not turn their turrets fast enough to return fire.

Russian Army - Sherman M4A2

U.S.Medium Tank M4A2 »General Sherman«, Early Production

Mais uma "conversão" do material fornecido pelos USA ao Exército Vermelho, ao abrigo do programa Lend-Lease.

Part of the ever increasing Lend-Lease deliveries to Russia, the first M4A2 Medium tanks entered the Eastern Front in late 1942.
The first of 2000 M4A2 75mm delivered still had the early 56 degrees front plate with the halfround antenna mount and the characteristic hoods protected by armour shields.
Two ventilators were sitting on top of the front hull. A mix of old open and new closed road wheels was not uncommon.
The low-buzzle cast turret was still lacking a loader's hatch and frequently the left pistol port as well. Applique armour was sometimes attached to the right turret side.
