Description Extended Information
 
Corgi CC51028 US M4A3 Sherman Medium Tank with 3 Figures - December, 1944 (1:50 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 1:50 scale replica of a US M4A3 Sherman medium tank served with the US Army in December 1944 and comes with 3 figures. Sold Out!
