Product Info


The M4A3E8 Sherman is an American tier 6 medium tank.

Also known as M4?3(76)W HVSS. At the end of August 1944, a new bogie suspension was designed. The vehicle variant was mass-produced and saw battle beginning in late March 1945, with a total of 4542 vehicles of both suspension types manufactured.

Nicknamed as the "Easy-Eight" or "E8", this tank is a quicker, slightly better armored version of the M4 Sherman. It also has an upgraded 76mm gun with an improved rate of fire and better accuracy. Considering all this, the M1A2 should not be overlooked on the upgrade path in comparison to the M1A1 as it really brings out the E8's strengths. Despite the increased armor compared to the M4 Sherman however, the E8 is still a very soft target and will be easily destroyed if it stays exposed to enemy fire. In addition it's twin, the M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo has thicker armor, more firepower, and more hitpoints than the M4A3E8 Sherman.

Finding a balance is a necessity and is excellent practice for the American mediums that are to follow, which all share a similar lack of armor. Its strongest point is its excellent mobility. It accelerates very quickly on all grounds, and loses little energy in turns which makes it an ideal flanking tank. Anyone who underestimates this gem will very soon become a smoking wreck.
