Sherman M4A1 - Lego compatible COBI 2464 - 420 brick medium tank
The M4 Sherman medium tank was the most commonly deployed battle tank in use by the United States (and some of the other Western Allies) in World War II. Mechanically reliable, easy and cheap to produce and maintain, the M4 was distributed in thousands, through the Lend-Lease programme, to the British Commonwealth and Soviet Union. In the earlier years of the war, it outclassed German light and medium tanks such as the Panzer III & IV (cat nos.2551/2461) and it spearheaded many offensives by the Western Allies after 1942. Early Shermans mounted a 75mm medium-velocity general-purpose gun. Later M4A1 models received the larger T23 turret with a high-velocity 76 mm M1 gun, which reduced the number of high-explosive and smoke rounds carried and increased the number of anti-tank rounds.
After World War II the Sherman, often in updated versions, saw combat in the Korean War, the Arab-Israeli Wars, and the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965.
