The Motor Pool TMP7012 US M4A3 Sherman Medium Tank - 4th Armored Division (1:35 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

By all accounts, the M4 Sherman medium tank was regarded 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.

Now The Motor Pool is proud to offer this stunning 1:35 scale diecast replica of a US M4A3 Sherman medium tank painted in a winter camouflage scheme. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "Breakthrough" - The 4th Armored Division ("Breakthrough") was activated in April 1941 at Camp Pine, New York. It participated in the Tennessee and California maneuvers before shipping out to England in December 1943. The division landed in France on June 13th, 1944, at Utah Beach and fought notably in Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsaice, and Central European campaigns. It was one of only two entire divisions in the war to be awarded the Presidential Unit Citation. The 4th Armored Division missed only one of the Third Army's 281 days of combat. By war's end, the division had captured 90,354 enemy troops, killed an estimated 13,600 soldiers, and destroyed 579 German tanks.
