The M4 Sherman medium tank was the primary tank used by the United States during
World War II. It was the first and most basic production version of the Sherman
line and also the most commonly-produced U.S. tank of WWII. It essentially formed
the backbone of U.S armoured forces at that time.

As many as 49,234 vehicles were produced.

The Sherman evolved from the M3 Medium Tank, retaining a lot from this previous
design. However, the M4’s design introduced a fully-traversable turret in combination
with a 75mm gun.

To facilitate production, the Sherman tank family was modified into a perplexing
array of variants – from the basic M4 through to the famous “Easy Eight”.

Shermans first saw combat with British forces in North Africa in late 1942, against
the Panzer III and Panzer IV. They would then go on to be used on all fronts until the
war’s end.

The tank was easy to produce en masse and quite reliable. A lack of firepower and
narrow tracks, which often caused it to get stuck on muddy terrain, were its main
weaknesses.
