NotesThe decision to mount a 47mm anti-tank gun of a vehicle with a good cross country performance was a great success, it was intended to give the vehicle a fully armoured gun cab but due to the pressing need to get vehicles out and into service they had just extended gun shields. They were issued to independent tank destroyer batteries.
