Kit of the famous American medium tank Sherman M4A1 in traditional green army camouflage. The model has a rotating turret with adjustable gun sight, rear position lights and toolbox. The tracks are functional and the model can be easily rolled on non-slippery surfaces. The 1:48 scale kits are smaller compared to standard COBI models and are space-saving when stored on the shelf.

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. The crews preferred the cast version because they believed it was more resistant 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.
  • The tank had ammunition stored in water with glycol to reduce the risk of fire in the event of a hit.
  • Only the Soviet Union produced more tanks, 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 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 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, within a few minutes the infantrymen would strip it of all its upholstery. They could make a fine pair of boots out of it."
