M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo Diecast Model
US Army 4th Armored Div, First in Bastogne, Bastogne, Belgium, Battle of the Bulge, December 1944, w/1 Figure

1:32 Scale   Length   Width
M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo   9.5"   3.5"

From May to July 1944, the Army accepted a limited run of 254 M4A3E2 "Jumbo" Shermans, which had very thick hull armor and the 75 mm gun in a new, better-protected T23-style turret ("Jumbos" could mount the 76 mm M1 cannon), to assault fortifications, leading convoys, and spearhead armored columns. The M4A3 model was the first to be factory-produced with the horizontal volute spring suspension (HVSS) system with wider tracks to distribute weight, beginning in August 1944. With the smooth ride of the HVSS, it gained the nickname "Easy Eight" from its experimental "E8" designation.

Please note: An optional Metal Track Upgrade set is available separately to further increase the realism of this model.

M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo

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.

Forces of Valor's 1:32 scale M4 Sherman tank is beautifully detailed-the top portion of the hull and turret are made of plastic, which gives the welding beads joining the hull's armor an authentic look and feel. Rear hatch opens to reveal finely detailed Chrysler A57 Multibank engine. The 360-degree rotating turret has two opening hatches and an elevating diecast metal cannon. A moveable machine gun mounted on top is included on some releases. Each release features beautifully applied weathering effects, rolling rubber tracks and wheels, a full load of separately applied battlefield equipment and a variety of battlefield diorama accessories to provide a variety of display options.
