The M10 RBFM Sirocco: A Vehicle with a Proud History
The ultimate reward of the D-Day Challenge is the fabulous M10 RBFM, a French Premium Tier V tank destroyer with a historical custom look, Sirocco. This formidable TD became the symbol of the liberation of France and all Western Europe in August 1944.
The M10 RBFM was in service with the marines of the French Army. These tank destroyers actively participated in military operations after the Allied landings in Normandy.
During the liberation of Paris, the M10 RBFM helped destroy a German “Panther” right on the Champs-Élysées, with a precise direct shot from a 2 km distance! During World War II, a special style called “Sirocco” was applied to the M10 RBFM. This style became an integral part of its formidable image, making it instantly recognizable to enemies.
Complete every mission of the Challenge and park this legendary vehicle in your Garage for free! We recreated the M10 RBFM down to the smallest detail, so it’s fully consistent with its historical prototype. This tank destroyer is a vivid reminder of one of the most important events in world history.
The M10 RBFM boasts great view range, complemented by a good camouflage value. It’s best played at a distance, using its camo values to stay concealed behind cover. The M10 RBFM has good concealment for its Tier, so take advantage of this to get closer to enemies and pinpoint their locations.
