Description Extended Information
 
Altaya ALT00002 US M4A3 Sherman Medium Tank - Creighton Abrams' "Thunderbolt IV", 37th Tank Battalion, 4th Armored Division, Bastogne, December 1944 (1:43 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.

This particular 1:43 scale replica of an US M4A3 Sherman medium tank was commanded by Creighton Abrams and nicknamed "Thunderbolt", which was attached to the 37th Tank Battalion, 4th Armored Division, then deployed to Bastogne during December 1944. Pre-order! Ship Date: 2020.

Historical Account: "Kilroy Wuz Here" - The 37th Tank Battalion had cartoons and names painted on the hull sides of most of their tanks and "Thunderbolt" was Creighton Abrams' first Sherman. Abrams would go on to become US Army Chief of Staff during the Vietnam War. The new M1 tank now in service is named after him. This Sherman carries the usual star insignia on the hull sides and turret roof, with blue drab serial numbers toward the rear of the hull sides.
