Designed as a replacement for the M3 Lee medium tank, the plans for the M4 were submitted to the US Army Ordnance Department on August 31, 1940. Approved the following April, the goal of the project was to create a dependable, fast tank with the ability to defeat any vehicle currently in use by Axis forces. In addition, the new tank was not to exceed certain width and weight parameters to ensure a high level of tactical flexibility and permit its use over a wide array of bridges, roads, and transportation systems.
The iconic American tank of World War II, the M4 Sherman was employed in all theaters of the conflict by the US Army and Marine Corps, as well as most Allied nations. Considered a medium tank, the Sherman initially mounted a 75mm gun and had a crew of five. In addition, the M4 chassis served as the platform for several derivative armored vehicles such as tank retrievers, tank destroyers, and self-propelled artillery. Christened “Sherman” by the British, who named their US-built tanks after Civil War generals, the designation quickly caught on with American forces.
