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 armored 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 in mass and quite reliable. A
lack of firepower and narrow tracks, which often caused it to get stuck on
muddy terrain, were its main weaknesses.
