|Notes||The M36 was mounted on the same chassis as the M10 but with a new specially designed turret. It was developed in hindsight by the designers who foresaw the threat of more heavily armoured German Tanks. The turret was opened topped but later models had a folding roof for overhead protection. The 90mm M3 Gun could engage Panthers and Tigers at ranges over 1000 yards, which made it a potent Tank Destroyer. The M36 saw service in World War Two and Korea.|
