The M4 Sherman is an American tier 5 medium tank.

The first production version of the Sherman, the most common American tank, with an amazing total of 49,234 vehicles manufactured. The Sherman first saw combat in North Africa.

It was the U.S. Army's legendary tank of WWII. It has good mobility and speed, but lacks in armor and the narrow tracks created high ground pressure affecting performance in mud and snow. The tank offers excellent guns for its tier, either using the 105 mm SPH M4L23, dealing large HE damage at close ranges, or the 76 mm Gun M1A1, offering a fast rate of fire and good penetration.

The M4 Sherman leads to the M4A3E2 and the M4A3E8 Sherman.

Pros and ConsEdit

Cons:Edit
  • Master of none


PerformanceEdit

Depending on the weapon loaded, the tank may need to change tactics to match. The 76mm is accurate, and able to shred lower-tier tanks, especially light tanks, with anywhere from one to four hits. While the 105mm can destroy lower tier tanks in one hit, but also do incredible damage to heavier tanks. The tank is a versatile tank, able to be fitted for a variety of roles, and is an excellent tank for its tier.

Both of the gun upgrades are effective. The 105 mm SPH M4L23 is a close range howitzer that only uses HE ammunition. It does high damage, but you need to get close and it has a comparatively long reload time. The 76 mm Gun M1A1 fires much faster and is accurate enough for long range shots. The howitzer, with the right angle, can fire over the crest of hills due to its trajectory without exposing the turret.

Like all mediums, the Sherman should advance from behind allied heavy tanks when possible, providing fire support. Sniping is also possible in some matches when equipped with the 76 mm.


Early ResearchEdit

  • Upon purchasing this tank, the only thing that carries over from the Lee is the SCR 506 radio.
  • You can't really go wrong with any of the research choices on this one. If you want to use the 105 mm SPH M4L23 gun, you'll want to upgrade the engine ASAP. Otherwise, go straight for the 76 mm Gun M1A1.
