The M4 Sherman was the workhorse medium tank of US and western Allied forces during World War II. Armed with a multi-purpose 75mm gun that could fire both high-explosive and anti-tank rounds, it ruled the battlefield when first introduced. The Sherman would later prove inferior in firepower and armor to heavier German Panther and Tiger Tanks, but it’s superior mobility, reliability and ease of manufacture proved to be a war winner.
The M4A1 Sherman was a variant produced by the Lima Locomotive Works and is characterized by one-piece cast armor hull, which had a rounded appearance in compared to the boxy, welded hulls of the other Sherman types.
