The M18 Hellcat is an American tank destroyer. It is lightly armored but extremely fast and armed with a powerful 76mm cannon. The Hellcat’s speed is used to flank the enemy hitting heavier tanks in the side or rear.

Hetzer means ‘chaser’ in German and that is exactly what this small and fast tank destroyer does best. Low profile, sloped armor and a powerful 75mm cannon makes it a difficult to see, hard hitting opponent on the battlefield.

If you encounter this rare monster on the battlefield you know you are in trouble. Armed with a VERY powerful 90mm cannon and 11cm thick frontal armor it is more than a match for the heavy German tanks. On the other hand, if you DRIVE it, you truly are playing with power.
