The 76 mm M18 tank destroyer was produced by General Motors Buick Division who named the M18 the "Hellcat". The M18 was the fastest tracked AFV of WWII reaching speeds up to 60 mph. The speed was possible because of the lack of heavy armor. The theory was speed would be the vehicles protection. Quite often German Panthers and Tigers would fall victim to the M18 because the German tanks turret couldn't turn fast enough to return fire. The M18 was also present in the war in the Pacific.
