This was the most developed of all the Sherman variants.
It had a long 76mm main gun and HVSS (horizontal volute
spring suspension). The numerical superiority of the M4
made it a war winner even though it had many drawbacks
in armor and firepower. Although mechanically reliable,
it had a high silhouette and the gasoline engines were
dangerously flammable.
