3-in. Gun Motor Carriage M10 is an anti-tank self-propelled artillery mount (PT-ACS) of the United States during the Second World War, a class of tank destroyers, medium in weight. This combat vehicle in the US Army was abbreviated as the GMC M10 or TD (an abbreviation for Tank Destroyer - “tank destroyer”). The American soldiers M10 also had the unofficial nickname "Wolverine" (eng. Wolverine - "Wolverine", which they borrowed from their British allies - supplied under Lend-Lease to the UK M10 had the official designation 3-in. SP, Wolverine).
Before the start of World War II, the American military command seriously underestimated the role of tanks. In connection with the successful use of tanks during the blitzkrieg in Poland and France, the issue of anti-tank combat became extremely acute for the Americans. After a brief debate, General McNair's point of view prevailed that the fight against enemy tanks should be taken over by specialized anti-tank units, suitably equipped. Such a doctrine was convenient in that it did not require changes in the structure, tactics and equipment of existing ground forces. It was assumed that anti-tank units would be deployed where they were needed and would create a powerful anti-tank defense in tank-prone areas, preventing tank breakthroughs by concentrating anti-tank weapons. It was believed that such a technique was more effective against the German strategy of tank strikes than the traditional anti-tank defense.
