2nd Armored Division (USAB13)

2nd Armored Division (USAB13)
The 2nd Armored Division was raised on 15 July 1940 under the command of Major General Charles L. Scott. Later that year Scott was promoted and com-mand of the division fell to one Brigadier General George S Patton. The division trained hard, prompting  Patton to boast that the 2nd Armored Division would be ‘Hell on Wheels’ when it met the enemy. The nick name stuck.

Sherman 75mm

 The M4 Medium Tank—best known by the nickname ‘Sherman’ given to it by the British— is the most famous American tank. It is operated in large numbers by the US and their allies across all theatres. Over the course of the war there were numerous variants, changing the engine and suspension, adding more armour and bigger guns, but all with the same tall, solid shape.

When the German Panther hit the battlefield in 1943, American engineers designed a new turret for the Sherman mounting a more powerful 76mm gun. This weapon has increased firepower against enemy tanks, giving tank formations a way to crack the front armour of Germany's heavier tanks. While redesigning the turret they added more armour protection as well as better ammo storage bins to stop ammo fires.

M10 Tank-Destroyer

The most potent weapons the US Army has for dealing with enemy tanks is the M10 tank destroyer, officially named the M10 3-inch Gun Motor Carriage. It has one job: to stalk and destroy enemy tanks, breaking up the focused armoured attacks for which the German panzer divisions have become famous.

Some commanders have used the light tanks' speed to charge, acting as a distraction while the medium tanks follow up. Facing the choice between engaging the light tanks threatening to overrun your position and the more dangerous mediums behind, many German commanders have stumbled. Others send the light tanks in a flanking manoeuvre to draw the enemy’s forces away as he scurries to protect now vulnerable artillery, transport and anti-aircraft positions.


M8 Greyhound

M8 Greyhound

Cavalry patrols operate over large areas of ground, constantly reporting on German positions. Most cavalry patrols have a single M8 Greyhound armoured car backed by a pair of jeeps. While the jeeps scout out targets, the M8 Greyhound covers them.

The Jeep

The patrol has a pair of jeeps to extend the unit's eyes and ears. One of the jeeps carried a .30cal machine-gun, while the other carried a 60mm mortar aboard that could be rapidly dismounted and fired to cover the patrol's retreat or knock out a small target.

The bulk of US infantry in Normandy are from the rifle companies. These are large formations, backed up by a tremendous amount of firepower support. American artillery, tanks, and reconnaissance are never in short supply for the American 'doughboys'.

105mm Howitzer

The M2A1 Howitzer has proven itself time and again throughout North Africa, Sicily, Italy, and now in Normandy. The field artillery batteries are well-trained to deliver massed firepower with devastating results.
