17pdr SP Achilles Mk Ic (M10)

This tank is actualy a British variant of the M10. They mounted a better Ordnance QF 17 pounder Mark V anti-tank gun in a modified turret. The 17 pounder was of a similar bore but had a superior armor penetration. It was used by the British, Canadian and Polish armies.
Here you can clearly see the difference of the gun, which is the muzzle brake and a small counterweight bolted to the gun barrel.
See picture #992 also.
See picture #212 for info on the M10 Achilles.
