The M4 is undoubtedly the most famous World War II Allied tank. It was the most-produced American tank during World War II, with close to 50,000 units (all versions included).
The British gave the tank its nickname, “Sherman,” when they got delivery of their first units through the Lend-Lease agreement. “Sherman” referenced the American Civil War Union General William Tecumseh Sherman. The U.S. Army quickly adopted this nickname.
This M4A4 Sherman tank recently joined the Normandy Tank Museum collection and was completely restored at the museum’s workshop. The restoration was done following very strict rules, and the tank is in running condition. It is powered by a powerful GAA Ford V8, which develops 500 hp.
