This variant of the Sherman tank was powered by two General Motors 6-71 diesel engines. The hull was identical to the M4 version. As with this version, the M4A1 variant derived its running wheels from the M3 tank.

This version of the Sherman was only used by the US Marine Corps. The tank was exported to the USSR, China, Great Britain, Mexico and Brazil.

Medium tank M4A2 Sherman in the USSR

According to my notes, the units of the Ukrainian front, which occupied the city of Brno, therefore also 6. Guards Tank Army, armed with North American M4A2 tanks. They were delivered to the Soviet Union at the request of a customer with a diesel engine. They were armed with either a 75 mm North American cannon or a more powerful 76.2 mm cannon. Two variants of sprung wheels are known from the photographs - shorter and structurally older VVSS, and longer HVSS.

The term "Sherman M-4 E" below is probably due to German World War II terminology, which used its own designation for the captured technology. Similarly, the British Armed Forces gave the imported M4 tanks their own names. The M4A2 variant received the designation "General Sherman III", its version M4A2 (76) W with a more powerful cannon, is known as " Sherman IIIA "a" Sherman IIIAY "belongs to the tank M4A2E8 with HVSS type chassis.

The two pictures below represent a medium-sized Sherman M4A2 tank with a 76 mm cannon. You can find a beautiful talk about Lend-Lease dances, for example, in R. Hunnicutt Sherman's book - A History of the American Medium Tank, or on the Internet at

Thanks to my colleague Ramgee for pointing out a bug that I was able to correct.
