Thanks to Jusuchin for this one. Hello everyone, some of you probably know and follow the video series and the site, called “Forgotten Weapons”. Its owner mostly deals with small arms, machineguns and generally exotic infantry weaponry, which makes the show kinda beyond the scope of FTR, but this time, he had a look at the 37mm M6 GMC, which was basically an early stopgap tank destroyer, introduced by the Americans in 1942. It was mostly used in the early fighting in Africa and in limited numbers also in the Pacific. The 37mm gun M3 was pretty much outdated by the time the vehicle got introduced, it was not very well liked and by 1943, this ad-hoc tank destroyer was completely obsolete. Of cca 5000 M6 GMC’s made, some were sold to the French, some left on Philippines, the rest was dismantled and the the trucks and guns got repurposed. You can read more about it here. *
