The M4 Sherman, formally Medium Tank, M4, was the primary tank used by the United States during World War II. Thousands were also distribuded to the Allies, including British Commonwealth and Soviet armies, via lend-lease.The original Shermans were porwerful enough to defeat the relatively small Germans tanks in North Africa. Later, they found themselves seriously overmatched against newer Tiger I and Panther heavy tanks, suffering high casualties against their heavier armourd and more powerful 88mm and 75mm cannons.
