Wasn't sure where to post this, the M10 TD was factory produced with bolt patterns for armor kits. I have never seen any photos of any TDs with any of those kits. And kits were availble for the Sherman but hardly any used them saw a few pics of tanks with the frontal kits but very few seems odd since they were willing to add the weight of logs cement and sand bags. Has anyone seen pics of M10s with the armor kits even my tank destroyer book mentions it but it a single picture of tanks with the armor logs sand bags. Is it because the could dump the other stuff quickly if they had to but not the armor. Just wondered. Seems like a total waste of time and materials that nobody wanted. Saw something interesting searching. Israeli M10C I believe the article said M10 17pdr, had some modifications stowage and looked like added armor to the turret sides looked liked chimpmunk cheeks.
