The Alecto is a British tier 4 tank destroyer.

Tank destroyer, developed from 1944 to 1945 on the basis of the Tetrarch light tank. The project was canceled when WWII ended.

The Alecto was based on the Mk VIII Harry Hopkins light tank which was intended to succeed the Tetrarch.

The Alecto is more similar to its late predecessor, the Universal Carrier 2-pdr, than the Valentine AT. The Alecto has a fast top speed of 50km/h and an average shell damage of nearly double its contemporaries, it pays for this with practically non-existent armor: 10mm all-around. The open-top hull and paper-thin armor make the Alecto very vulnerable to HE and SPG shells. This TD is perhaps the definition of "Glass Cannon". It is speedy and maneuverable and boasts high damage output with extremely low profile. It's most effective harassing and relocating to hit enemies in their soft sides. The play style is similar to the ELC AMX and the M18 Hellcat; if you have had experience with those tanks you will know to avoid attracting attention while dishing out large amounts of damage.

The Alecto leads to the AT 2.

Historical Info

Courtesy of wikipedia:

The Alecto was an experimental self propelled gun developed by the British during the Second World War but terminated with the end of the war in Europe.

A project for a 3.75 inch (95 mm) howitzer was started in 1942. Two guns were made, and one of these was chosen for test mounting on a Harry Hopkins tank chassis. Like the Harry Hopkins, the Alecto had skid steering, which operated by bowing the tracks through lateral movements of the central road wheels. The gun was mounted in an open-topped structure facing to the rear. The first trials were not started until late in 1944. The trials uncovered various problems but by the time these were solved the war in Europe was over. With no prospect for use in the Far East, the project was ended with a total of five variants planned:

   Mk I    3.75 inch (95 mm), 20 cal howitzer
   Mk II     QF 6 pdr gun
   Mk III     QF 25 pounder gun-howitzer. Prototype partially completed
   Mk IV    32pdr howitzer.
