Overview

The M4 Sherman was a United States medium tank in World War II. It was the first American medium tank with the main gun mounted on a fully traversing turret. The Shermans were powerful enough to defeat the German tanks that they faced in North Africa, but later when they faced the powerful and resilient Tiger I and Panther tanks, the U.S tanks had to rely on number and mobility, often resulting in heavy casualties.

Production of the M4 medium tank exceeded 50,000 units and its chassis served as the basis for numerous other armored vehicles, such as tank destroyers, tank retrievers, and self-propelled artillery. Only the Soviet T-34 tank was produced in larger numbers during World War II.
