Description Extended Information
 
Forces of Valor 81407 British M4 Sherman Medium Tank - "Sheik", Royal Scots Greys, Italy, 1943 (1:32 Scale) "The only way you can win a war is to attack and keep on attacking, and after you have done that, keep attacking some more."
- General George S. Patton Jr., January 1945

The M4 Sherman medium tank was regarded by many as the workhorse of the US Army during World War II. In fact, virtually all of the Allied armies employed the Sherman in their armed forces, including the British, who developed an upgunned variant called the "Firefly". Eleven different US plants manufactured six basic models of the Sherman, and by June 1944 over 49,234 battle-ready vehicles had been produced. While it was no match for the German Panther or Tiger tanks, the Sherman soldiered on, using its weight in numbers to wrest control of Europe from the Wehrmacht. The M4A3 was fitted with a long-barrel M1A1 76mm gun, which replaced the shorter and less effective 75mm gun, and sported a larger, more angular turret to house the bigger gun. In addition, the slope of the M4A3's frontal armor was changed to 47-degrees to increase frontal protection and simplify the production process.

This particular 1:32 scale diecast replica of the famed M4A3 Sherman was attached to the British Royal Scots Greys, an armored unit involved in the Battle for Italy during 1943. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "The Greys" - The Royal Scots Greys Regiment can trace its origins back to three independent Scots Dragoons troops that were raised in 1678. In March 1941, the Greys -- the last surviving regiment still with horses -- was mechanized. The unique color scheme of khaki-green, light mud, and blue-black flecks as shown on this model was used in Italy by a number of British regiments including the Greys. It also carries the distinctive division symbol and color-coded unit designation.
