The Real Thing
Here is the WW2`s M18 76mm Gun Motor Carriage Hellcat, in a perfect paper version in 1/50 scale offered by World of Tanks, Russian website. The M18 Hellcat (also known as the M18 Gun Motor Carriage) was an American tank destroyer of World War II, used in the Italian and European theatres. It was the fastest armored vehicle until the turbine powered M1 Abrams tank appeared decades later. The speed was attained by keeping armor to a minimum, no more than one inch thick, and by powering the relatively small vehicle with a radial engine originally designed for aircraft usage. The Hellcat, along with the M10 Wolverine and M36 tank destroyer, provided American and Allied forces with a respectable mobile anti-tank capability against the newer German armored types. Despite being armed with an only partially effective 76 mm cannon, it performed exceptionally well and even outperformed much more heavily armored vehicles with much larger weapons, such as the American 90mm M36 or the British Ordnance QF 17-pounder armed Sherman Firefly. The Hellcat holds the record for most effective American tank destroyer during World War II. It has a higher kill to loss ratio than any tank or tank destroyer fielded by American forces in World War II. - read more at Hellcat.at.Wikipedia

O M18 Hellcat (também conhecido como M18 Gun Motor Carriage) foi um tanque destroyer norte-americano da Segunda Guerra Mundial, usado em território europeu. Era o veículo blindado mais rápido até que o tanque M1 Abrams apareceu, décadas mais tarde. Construído pela Buick, foi apelidado por ela de Hellcat (Gato do Inferno). Foi o veículo blindado de esteira mais rápido da Segunda Guerra, passando dos 97 km/h (60 mph). A tripulação do Hellcat usava a velocidade como defesa, já que sua blindagem era muito fina. Muitos tanques Panther e Tiger foram destruídos pois suas torres não conseguiam acompanhar o avanço do Hellcat. - leia mais em Hellcat.na.Wikipedia
