In the only study known to have been done to test the use of sandbags, on March 9, 1945, officers of the 1st Armored Group tested standard Panzerfaust 60s against sandbagged M4s; shots against the side blew away the sandbags and still penetrated the side armor, whereas shots fired at an angle against the front plate blew away some of the sandbags but failed to penetrate the armor. Furthermore, U.S. crews found that on soft ground such as mud or snow, the narrow tracks gave poor ground pressure compared to wide-tracked second-generation German tanks such as the Panther and the Tiger. Panzers at War. Both and BiA: 2800.9 They seemed to show that the 90 mm gun was equal to or better than the 17 pounder. Zaloga, Steven (1993).

Additionally, interest in mounting the British 17-pounder in U.S. Shermans flared anew. The U.S. Army failed to anticipate that the Germans would make the Panther the standard tank of their panzer divisions in 1944, supported by substantial numbers of Tigers. The T6 was standardized as the M4 and production began in October.[9]. Early Shermans mounted a 75 mm medium-velocity general-purpose gun. Sherman. The M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" Shermans and other late models with wider-tracked HVSS suspension corrected these problems, but formed only a small proportion of the tanks in service even in 1945. [26] By 1943, the IJA still used the Type 95 and Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tanks, while Allied forces were quickly replacing their light tanks with 75 mm-armed M4s.

Ende August 1944 wurde eine neue Drehgestell-Aufhängung entwickelt. The U.S. continued to transfer Shermans to its allies, which contributed to widespread foreign use. 100% Crew [61] United States Army research proved that the major reason for this was the stowage of main gun ammunition in the sponsons above the tracks.

During these latter years of the war, General Purpose High Explosive (HE) ammunition was preferred, because armor-piercing rounds, which had been designed for penetrating thicker steel, simply went through the thin armor of Japanese tanks, and often out the other side without stopping. In recent tests we put a captured German Mark V [Panther] against all models of our own. [31], As a result, the Bureau of Ordnance, which had developed new 90 mm and 76 mm anti-tank guns in 1943, did not provide U.S. armored forces with the guns required to optimally fight the Panther and Tiger. It retained much of the previous mechanical design, but added the first American main 75 mm gun mounted on a fully traversing turret, with a gyrostabilizer enabling the crew to fire with reasonable accuracy while the tank was on the move. After Update 5.5, it is now preceded by the M7, and leads to the M4A3E8, the Chaffee, and the T37. In WoT, the M4 Sherman is considered a very well rounded tank. It has good mobility and speed, and the armor, when manually angled, provides moderate shielding. Its hull armor is a bit lacking and will most likely be penetrated by other tanks of its tier. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. "[58] Regardless, the Sherman, like most Allied vehicles, remained vulnerable to infantry anti-tank weapons such as the Panzerschreck and Panzerfaust. Berndt, Thomas. Both: 2168.1 The projectile contained a tungsten core penetrator surrounded by a lightweight aluminum body, which gave it a higher velocity and more penetrating power. Der M4A1 Sherman führt zum M4A3E8 Sherman. IV. Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus.

Many details of production, shape, strength and performance improved throughout production, without a change to the tank's basic model number; more durable suspension units, safer "wet" (W) ammunition stowage, and stronger armor arrangements, such as the M4 Composite, which had a cast front hull section mated to a welded rear hull. Some M4s and M4A1s continued in U.S. service for the rest of the war. Shermans also went to Israel. It has good mobility and speed, and the armor, when manually angled, provides moderate shielding.

It offers great damage, but sacrifices penetration. With BiA: 0.431 m [40], The British were more astute in their anticipation of the future development of German armor: beginning development of a 3-inch anti-tank gun even before its predecessor entered service and planning for its use in tanks that would replace the M4. This was backed up in an interview with Technical Sergeant Willard D. May of the 2nd AD who commented: "I have taken instructions on the Mark V [Panther] and have found, first, it is easily as maneuverable as the Sherman; second the flotation exceeds that of the Sherman"[66]. 50% Crew: 1866.65 Advantageous Damage Per Minute ISBN.9780891410805.

By only exposing its strong frontal turret it can consistently damage enemies while bouncing shots itself. As a result, even weakly-armored light German tank destroyers such as the Marder III, which was meant to be a stop-gap measure to fight Soviet tanks in 1942, could destroy Shermans from a distance.
