Brief History Entered service in 1942 and saw extensive service with US Army and most Allied armies during and after World War II. The M4 Sherman was the most prolific medium tank of World War II and saw action in the Korean and Middle East wars. The M4 Sherman had many deficiencies compared to the Panther being out-guned and out-armoured but it made up for these shortcomings in reliability, endurance and sheer weight of numbers. Nearly 50,000 in total were produced. The M4 proved a very versatile chasis and many variants were built most notable of which were the specialist tanks designed for the D-Day landing.
