Initial version of the M4 Sherman medium tank, the most used armored fighting vehicle by the Allied armies during World War II. It was armed with a general purpose 75 mm M3 L/40 medium speed gun that had a gyro-stabilizer, which although it did not allow it to shoot accurately while moving, it did keep the object aimed during it. It could fire high explosive HE and AP armour piercing ammunition. The latter was not suitable to defeat German tanks by frontal attack, but the high explosive destruction capacity was very much appreciated among its crews, as its main targets were unarmored. Its engine was a Continental R975 radial 9-cylinder gasoline and used a vertical spring suspension VVSS of the initial type.
