The U.S. Medium Tank M4 Sherman Early Production Model Kit by Tamiya recreates the most widely produced U.S. Army tank during the Second World War.
Production of the M4 began in July 1942. It was first deployed during the Italian campaign in May 1943. Although outgunned by the German Panzers, the M4's superb reliability, mobility and superior numbers, compensated for the smaller weapon. M4 Sherman tanks saw action on every front, from its introduction in Italy, to the end of the conflict.
The M4 used an angular shaped welded hull, and the Continental R975-C1 radial aircraft engine. Although powerful and proven, its high center propeller shaft gave the hull a tall profile. Suspension was a rugged and simple design, known as VVSS (Vertical Volute Spring Suspension), with three units (or bogies) on each side, and each with two road wheels.
