This was the first tank I learned about as a kid, always remembered that lol It's such a beast! I put together a model of it that I kept in my room for years.

a good blog post is very interesting I love it. still well preserved in a very perfect museum .thanks you.

great in history of Germany! amazing tank..

Cool! The tanks of before stills look amazing up until now. These kind of preservation shows what was the face of yesterday for the new generation next to us.

I have read that the Shermans were so poorly armored that they were easily penetrated and destroyed by shells from both the Tiger and Panther. I heard they could also only attack even a Panther from behind, or else the Sherman's shells would bounce off if they hit anywhere else. Have you heard these things? ...or something different?

At the beginning of the war, it was a good tank. Then came guns and powerful tanks that effectively hit this tank.

Hmmmm...I thought Germany had Panthers at the beginning of the war...?

These are American tanks and their allies (England and USSR). Germany did not have these tanks.

I understand that...never mind...

Wow! I love it! A sherman tank! One of the best tank of the US against German Tiger Tank! I know a lot of tanks! Because this my hubby collection! Expecially I am playing the PC games of

What a huge armourd car

History must be told, although I didn't witness the war, o heard the terrors it caused
