Assembly instructions

You know that:

  • The M4 Sherman tank was produced in many versions from 1942 until 1945 in 6 different American and British factories.
  • In addition to many modifications, the tank was also produced with a square (welded) or round (cast) hull. Crews favored the cast version because they believed in greater resistance to enemy shells. This has never been independently verified.
  • The last units were retired from the US Army in 1974.
  • A total of 49,234 Shermans were produced in various versions.
  • In addition to many upgrades, versions such as the bulldozer, bridge carrier, recovery vehicle, mine explodes and flame throwers were produced.
  • The tank had ammunition stored in water with glycol to reduce the risk of fire in the event of a hit.
  • More tanks were produced only by the Soviet Union, namely the T-34 model.
  • Sherman tanks were also in the armament of the Czechoslovak Independent Armoured Brigade, consisting of young men who managed to escape the occupation.
  • This armoured brigade relieved a British group at the siege of the fortified port of Dunkirk in August/September 1944.
  • More than 4,000 pieces were also delivered to the Soviet Union as part of the relief effort.
  • The tank was very popular with Red Army crews because of its high reliability. The T-34's steel tracks lasted approximately 2,500 km of driving, while the rubberized ones on the Sherman more than doubled that.
  • However, even the Sherman had its weak points. The driver's hatch was so unfortunate to open that the gun barrel could hit it when the turret was rotated, and you can imagine what happened when the 20 kg heavy hatch fell on the driver's head.

From the memoirs of the commander of the Soviet 46th Guards Tank Brigade, Colonel Dmitri Fyodorovich Lozi:

"I have no words for that! The Shermans were beautiful, beautifully painted. The seats were very comfortable, covered in some kind of artificial leather. If there was an abandoned Sherman somewhere, the Russian infantrymen would shave it of all the upholstery in a few minutes. They could make a fine pair of boots out of it."
