M18 Hellcat - Lego compatible COBI 2389 - 460 brick tank destroyer
A World War II American tank destroyer, the M18 Hellcat saw action in both the European and Pacific theatres as well as later in the Korean War. Its minimal armour, open-top turret and modified aircraft engine made it the fastest American tracked armored vehicle until the M1 Abrams battle tank decades later. The Hellcat, along with the M10 and M36 tank destroyers, provided US and Allied forces with a reasonably effective capability against the later German tanks.
Of tank destroyers fielded by American forces in World War II, the Hellcat had highest kill to loss ratio. 2,507 were manufactured between July 1943 and October 1944. At first its main armament was the M1 76 mm gun and later the M1A2.
