The M4 Sherman,
also known as the
“Medium Tank,”
was the primary

Allies during
World War 2.

Manufactured by the
United States, the
Sherman tank was sold
to a variety of Allied
nations such as Britain
and France. Sherman
tanks were even sold to
the Soviet Union,
although in small
numbers.

The Sherman was highly
mobile, powerfully
equipped with a 75mm
gun mounted on a fully
traversing turret which
allowed the gun to be
swivelled 360 degrees.

Equipped with a
gyrostablizer, the turret
was able to remain
stable while the tank or
turret was in motion,
providing increased
accuracy when aiming.

Due to constant innovations in firing power and
armoring, the M4 was equipped with a variety of
different weapons during the war.

While the 75mm gun was sufficient during the
M4′s original release, the increase in armoring
on German tanks eventually necessitates
advancements in armament, such as the 76mm
gun and the British “17-pounder.”

The M4 was notable for
being easy to produce.
Originally produced for
to be sold to the United
Kingdom, the M4 would
become a staple of the
Allied war effort.

Prominently associated
with its home country,
the U.S. During its
production from 19411945, over forty nine
thousand M4 tanks were
produced.
