      In 1944 and 1945, the US designed some 12 variants of the tank mounted rocket launcher: the T34/T34E1/T34E2 series (series standardized as the M8 Calliope), the T39/T40/T40 Short Version (series standardized as the M17), the T72 (standardized as the M16), and the T73, T76, T76E1, T105, and T99 series. Not all of these versions saw combat. Of the ones that did, the T34/M8 “Calliope” was the most widely used, with the earliest reported use in the Normandy Campaign in June 1944. Even more rocket tanks were developed for non-combat engineering roles, such as the T31 Rocket Demolition Tank.
