The idea is to build any Sherman Tank or a Sherman derivative that saw action, or was used in training. Any theatre, any country or time frame.
The M4 Sherman, formally Medium Tank, M4, was the primary tank used by the United States during World War II. It was also distributed to the Allies via lend lease. It was the first American medium tank with a fully traversing turret for the main gun.
Production of the M4 medium tank exceeded 50,000 units and its chassis served as the basis for numerous other armored vehicles such as tank destroyers, tank retrievers, and self-propelled artillery.
The Sherman and its variants continued to be used in training and combat into the late 20th century, it was comparatively fast and maneuverable, mechanically reliable, easy to manufacture and service, and produced in many special-purpose variants, whose capabilities differed greatly.
In this Campaign you have the opportunity to build one of the many variants of the M4 Sherman or one of the many machines based on its' chassis.
