Creighton Abrams tanks christened this Sherman M4A3E8(76)W "Thunderbolt VII". Abrams fought in this tank while he was commander of the 37th Tank Battalion of the 4th Armored Division. He was an aggressive commander and his unit was frequently in the vanguard of the Third Army's advance across Northwest Europe. While the Sherman was outmatched by larger and heavily armed German tanks, Abrams used the reliability and speed of his own vehicles to overcome his adversaries. This is a classic model of an important tank of a historic commander - the original "Abrams" tank!

M4A3E8 Sherman

The pilot model of the M4 was completed in September 1941, and the Sherman became the most widely produced tank of the war. The M4 Sherman defeated heavier tanks with superior numbers, and by using outflanking tactics to strike thinner enemy flank armor. Shermans also achieved success with progressively upgunned models and by working with tank destroyers. The Sherman tank--named by the British--was fast, maneuverable, mechanically reliable, easy to manufacture, and effective in its infantry support role. It served with the US Army and Marines during World War II, and the US transferred large numbers to the United Kingdom and allied forces of many countries.
