    The standard infantry anti-tank gun was the 6 pdr - a gun capable of taking out most German armour but one that struggled against the heavier Panthers, Tigers and their ilk. The much moire potent 17 pdr was very effective but at the same time heavier and more unwieldy. The British knew from past experience that German forces would usually counterattack quickly and the 17 pdr would be unlikely to be able to be positioned in time. Thus the British saw the Achilles as a perfect way to put the lethal 17 pdr in position and to manoeuvre it to react to the situation at any one time - something the towed 17 pdr could not hope to achieve. Over 1,000 M10 tank destroyers were converted into Achilles during WWII.
