German Puma Tank Expansion

The Puma matched a fast and nimble armoured car design with a reliable 50mm cannon that was capable of knocking out enemy Sherman and T-34 tanks. Of course this sometimes tempted the crews to pick fights that they otherwise should have avoided. As the war progressed the Pak Wagen version mounted a 75mm gun in place of the turret.

Soviet M10 (Lend-Lease) Tank Expansion

The Lend-Lease program saw thousands of tanks supplied to the Soviet Union during the war. Amongst these were a small number of M10 tank destroyers that somehow found their way to the Eastern Front. Whilst not as heavily armed or armoured as some Soviet designs, the turret meant it was one of the few self-propelled guns that could not easily be outflanked.
