Skink AA - This was developed by Canada in 1944 as a self-propelled anti aircraft vehicle to defend the Allied columns during and after the Normandy invasion. It was armed with 4 20mm cannon with a cast turret, to be mounted on Canandian built cast hull Sherman M4A1 chassis, Grizzly I. Only three vehicles were completed when the Allies realized that they have already achieved air supremacy. The project was cancelled in April 1944 before D-Day. But the sole completed Skink sent to Britian for testing did saw action serving in 2nd Canadian Armoured Brigade, and entered combat on 4 February in support of the 6th Canadian Armoured Regiment north of Nijmegen bridge; and in December supporting the 22nd Canadian Armoured Regiment in the Hochwald Forest.
