The LCM (3) was a model of landing craft designed to transport vehicles, manufactured by Higgins during World War II. It had a cargo area accessible from a movable ramp located in the forward part of the hull, with the capacity to transport up to a 30-ton Sherman tank. The 4-member crew rode on an armored bridge armed with two 50-caliber machine guns.
The M4A1 was the first one-piece cast hull variant of the Sherman. It entered service in 1942 and some 6,280 were produced by the end of 1943. Some of them were converted with superstructures that waterproofed the exhaust and engine vents to be able to land on beaches without the risk of flooding the engine with water.
